hard to translate

the name Das makes me think that it takes place in india, in india it's only a little cabin,a wood board on a street's, road's side, a kettle and a few glasses. i guess that there must be such stalls in every poor country, think a brazilian translator coul find a sort of equivalent
i may be totally wrong about india, forgive me!

tenda de chá /barraquinha de chá

realmente não é uma tradução fácil.
Stall é sinónimo de barraca, tenda, quiosque, pequeno estabelecimento

por exemplo:
stall-holder quer dizer vendedor de barraca, tendeiro
stall-rent é o aluguer pago por uma barraca ou tenda (no mercado)
e butchers.stall significa talho

julgo pois que a sua tradução deve orientar-se por aí. Dependendo do seu contexto poderá talvez usar a expressão "barraquinha de chá" ou "casinha de chá" embora casa dê uma ideia de qualquer coisa mais sólida do que stall realmente significa. Senão eu talvez optasse mesmo por tenda de chá ou até quiosque de chá.

Veja como estas sugestões se adaptam ao seu contexto...

Boa sorte!
