An excellent choice of teas (the Chinese tea 'Gunpowder' went down well!), accompanied by lovely food. It was easy to while away the early afternoon in such an idyllic setting! Would definitely recommend for a relaxing lunch or tea-time experience.

Went there to meet friends. Had different teas and a vegetarian lunch which were awesome! Onion pie with rice and salad was indeed very tasty! This place is highly recommended for people who just wanna relax and chill out.

Had a great lunch here a couple of times on my stay in Porto. Their 7 euro lunch menu is filling, and included a soup, a choice of a meat, fish or a vegetarian dish and mug of tea. Would highly recommend!

It's situated in a very nice garden and the prices of the tea were all right - 2.5 euros for a full kettle seems fair - but the tea just wasn't that good - especially compared to the very hyped-up menu.

Just a hint: after 30 minutes no has even asked us what we wanted. It' s a shame that such a wondeful place has such a nasty service. Enter, visit (it's free and no one will bother to ask you if you need anything) and leave to have a tea at a close by coffee or tea shop

From the outside it looks like a tea and coffee shop. When you go inside it is such a lovely place with a very oriental atmosphere. The garden a delight. The owners are very friendly and speak english very well. There's a set menu for lunch and diner. During daytime, you can order tea, coffee and a variety of pastry.... More
