On February 26, 2020, Shri Babul Supriyo, Minister of State for Environment, Forest & Climate Change, inaugurated a pioneering establishment at Asansol station. This extraordinary creation, known as “ Restaurants on Wheels," proudly holds the distinction of being India's first Train Tea Café, ingeniously situated within a refurbished Railway Carriage at Asansol Junction.
This unique Tea Café is a collaborative venture between Chai Chun and Indian Railways, offering an exceptional selection of teas and delightful accompaniments. The project was initiated to celebrate the enduring connection between train journeys and India's cherished tea culture. Located just outside Asansol Junction, this charming café has quickly become a favored destination for tea enthusiasts from all walks of life.
