Golf Course, Tea Garden and a Tea Lounge in Kolkata – that’s ‘Yule Tea Lounge’ for you!

Often when you feel like running away from this mundane filth and dirt all around, you realize that you have actually got nowhere to go in this crowded city that’s filled with opportunities and demons, both at the same time!
