Destination Tea Notes: Dr. Bombay’s is a vibrant, cozy haven, reminiscent of a shop you might find in the wizarding world’s Diagon Alley. Ensconced amongst book-lined walls, paper lanterns and hanging origami, friends visit while others type away busily on laptops. The scene is lively without being loud. Not only do you feel part of the local community, you are part of a global community, simply by patronizing Dr. Bombay’s. Favorite words from their thank you card: “Make Food. Serve Love…Thank you for being a part of this movement we call humanity.” As home to The Learning Tea, Dr. Bombay’s uses a portion of its proceeds to house and pay college tuition for female scholars in Darjeeling, India. YES! Oh, and their family recipe clotted cream is divine.
