Eat. Tapri Tea House

One of the best parts of travel has to be the food. We love to explore the local food scene wherever we go and a recent trip to Jaipur was no different. We never get tired of the food in India and we especially love the adventurous use of flavors and the vegetarian selection that you can so easily find. Chai, of course, is central to the Indian culture and we had some of the best at the Tapri Tea House

A local friend recommended that we try it and we are so glad that we did! A nondescript exterior with a large garden and attached patio beckons you to find a comfortable seat either inside or to enjoy the sun outside. 

Inside the tea house is a small, cozy area where you can find locally made tea pots, serving ware and loose tea. We found a cozy booth and got down to the business of ordering the food! 

All vegetarian, the food is served in biodegradable dried palm leaves which we loved creating little waste from our meal. We ordered a ton of different small plates and shared family style all while guzzling the requisite chai tea. 

If you are looking for good food, ambiance and getting a sense of the tea culture in India, Tapri Tea House one we recommend in Jaipur.

The Road to Nuywa

Two years ago amidst non stop world travels we bought the Nuywa domain, prompted by a blurry eyed conversation at 1 am in the Delhi airport. And then, life. "It wasn't the right time", "it wasn't realistic", "we are too busy", all the excuses we always come up with to talk ourselves out of jumping into something new. But somehow it always popped back up again, the way things do that eventually it can no longer be ignored.

So here we are two years after dreaming up a modern, global home decor brand inspired by intrepid adventures, artisan techniques and beautiful products that are transparently sourced and priced finally making it a reality. 

Besides being excited by the product, we are a team of builders, we thrive on creation, exploration and connections. We like to take risks, try new things and figure how to do them better. All the while making sure we have some time to have fun and laugh. Thanks for joining us on the journey- there is a lot to see!
