In continued efforts to incorporate sustainable items from unique local markets into the menu, Shangri-La Bengaluru presents a plant-based Indian afternoon tea. The special Hi-Chai will be available for a limited period, giving Bengalureans a unique opportunity to try out a special locally-inspired vegetarian afternoon tea with regional ingredients, plant meat and desi drinks.

Shangri-La's Rooted in Nature Hi-Chai, which commemorates Republic Day, is organized in collaboration with Go Native and Evolved Foods. With this exciting initiative, the super chefs at Shangri-La and Go Native are reviving the bygone tradition of Chai Nashta evenings at home, where families assembled every evening to have tea, coffee and snacks.
