Close your eyes and picture the sight of buzzing cafes, restaurants, juice bars, and chai places. What comes to your mind? The distant vision of a bustling city- London perhaps.
The culture of London’s city life- people rushing to offices with their favorite Chai and a pastry is a sight that defines the city. Charmed by the energy and gusto of the London cafes, we decided to bring a bit of London to our very own South Jordan and “Biscotts” was born!
The inspiration for our menu comes from the varieties of Chai that we had fun choosing and concocting to please the palettes of our patrons. Add to that a list of delicate and delicious tasting cakes and pastries, we are pretty convinced we have the recipe for happiness that money can buy.
Growing up in India, every street would have a “chaiwallah” (a person at a tea kiosk or shop selling hot teas and chai)… Chai was, is, and always will be an integral part of the Indian culture and society. There is something typical about early mornings in most Indian households. A little before dawn sets in, the lady of the house jumps out of bed, slips her feet into her slipppers and immediately rushes into the kitchen to begin her daily warming-up ritual: putting water in a kettle to boil, sprinkling in some black tea, pouring milk, adding sugar and perhaps some ginger or cardamom for extra flavor and letting the dance of cha-cha-chai begin.
It’s no secret that Chai has gained immense popularity across the globe; it’s simply a more refreshing alternative to the lattes and cappuccinos of our times. People are ready for change and variety. With a rich aroma, full body, smooth taste, Chai instantly refreshes and soothes not just your body but your soul. For this reason we like to call it the magic drink.
Personally for us, it also carries an aroma of nostalgia — as if the past is steeped into the leaves, along with hope and optimism for the future. This is the passion we intend to bring to you through Biscotts… healthier drinks and foods for your body that also soothe and speak to your soul.
