THE authentic taste of masala tea and coffee at an affordable price has contributed to the growing popularity of Brickfields’ Tea Thambi stall.

Owner Kavievanan Subramaniam said he made the drinks from high-quality tea leaves and natural ingredients sourced from trusted suppliers.

“This ensures that every cup of tea is infused with authentic flavours,” he said.

Tea Thambi serves both premium and regular masala tea, as well as coffee, ginger tea, six varieties of toast bread and various confectioneries.

The masala drinks are served hot in small, medium and large cups that cost RM1, RM2 and RM4 respectively.

“Our blends are crafted with therapeutic ingredients, and this sets our tea apart in a crowded market,” said the 27-year-old businessman.

For RM2, customers can also choose their own toast spread from six options which are kaya, butter, strawberry, blueberry, chocolate, and peanut butter.

They are made from bun halves spread with salted butter and toasted on a sizzling hot pan.

The buns are then slathered with a spread of the customer’s choice, to make a grab-and-go snack.

Premium masala tea features black tea brewed with a blend of spices such as cinnamon, clove and green cardamom.

For its premium masala coffee, the stall uses ground coffee, sugar and milk.

Kavievanan said he strived to keep his prices competitive.

Tea Thambi is located along Jalan Tun Sambanthan in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur.

It operates daily from 8am to 6pm but opening hours may differ on public holidays.

Customers may contact 018-390 0171 to place orders.
