    It may seem like a funny query but it's better to ask here than phoning the hotel to ask. Please don't ask why I want to know it is a long story.

    I would like to know what the Taj hotel in Mumbai tea price is?

    Hello, @Neeru, welcome to the forum!

    The Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai
    What is the Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai?

    The Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai is one of the best luxury hotels in the city. It was established in the early 19th century and has become a trademark when it comes to the hospitality and warmth known from the Taj Group of Hotels. Both renowned local and international individuals have stayed in the hotel, like Mahatma Gandhi, prime influencer for Indian Independence Movement, and Mick Jagger, world renowned music icon. Combining royalty, modernity and at the same time, tradition, the Taj Mahal Palace has stood the test of time and it would continue to do so.

    Did you know that the hotel was established even before the Gateway of India in Mumbai? Thus, it served as the landmark for passing ships back in the colonial era. Now though, with the nearby Gateway of India and also the Colaba Causeway, the five-star hotel is one of the best options for a premier stay in Mumbai. The hotel overlooks the majestic Arabian sea and even the nearby Marine Drive is merely a 15-minute walk away from it. With such history and heritage, the Taj Mahal Palace is certainly not just a hotel, it's a part of the rich legacy that is of India.

    OMG with the prices of tea, I understand that its Taj, but I would think that a cup of tea would cost that much. Why are these tea costs so high?
