Tiles with a "Tea"

Tea, famously called Chai, is unarguably one of the most consumed beverages in India. The refreshing aroma and the prominent taste, from a roadside stall to a 5-star lobby, are enough to lift up your spirits and get you going. Hindustan Uniliver has taken the tea drinking experience to a whole new level since the launch of The Taj Mahal Tea House. A very coming of age cafe, The Taj Mahal Tea House offers a variety of beverages, savouries and food dishes, some surprisingly well crafted with blends of tea from across the world. However, a cafe needs to be more than just about the food. It also attracts loyalty through elements like the ambiance, the service, the decor; and everything with the right amount of class and creativity just works the magic.

Among the most prominent of the aesthetics at The Taj Mahal Tea House are the tiles. A combination of the Temple pattern Heritage tiles and Giza pattern by Bharat Floorings and Tiles give the place a deserved appeal. The designs and the colour combinations complement the architecture by none other than the renowned Ayaz Basrai of Busride Design known for his inspiring designs and great flexibility in approaching different projects. The tiles have been installed not only on the floor but also on the walls of the cafe. This not only ensures a sense of continuity and order but also adds character to the place.

The entire cafe has been worked with a combination of tiles from the Heritage™ collection. The 3D pattern tiles viz. Giza serve to create a multi-dimensional effect floor. Origami, the ancient Japanese art of folding papers was the prime inspiration for the tiles designed by Busride. The Origami method serves as a base technique for creating fantastic variations with a simple square sheet of paper, which instantly resonates with the idea of a tile and the myriad forms that arise from intelligent uses of orientation and pattern. This led to folding inspired shapes they call ‘Origametes’. For more information on our tiles, visit
