It is a place managed by hearing impaired people. So you have to enjoy the silence and try to communicate with sign language (they provide written signs for you to order things and make it easier). Excelente coffee, local brew, with a touch of class...More

We worked very hard during the design phase of the tea house, to ensure that our customers had a tranquil experience, as well as a great cup of tea or coffee. Thank you for your review.

This is a very picturesque teahouse and it’s so tranquil and beautiful here. I loved the decoration and the atmosphere. It’s not super cheap but it was worth the money for me. I had the tea sampler set and some cookies. Lovely!

The tea sampler is certainly the right way to experience all the flavours and aromas of our various teas. The homemade cookies are chosen to compliment the different tea flavours. Thank you for your review and rating.

This gorgeous tea house provided a wonderful break from the hustle of Old Town. The ambiance & tea/snacks was all done to perfection. What a great organization. The craft shop holds many fine items as well.

Our Tea House is in Old Town, where, as you know no cars are allowed and motorbikes restricted. The easiest way, we find is to get a taxi to An Hoi and walk over the bridge. sure hope your parents can visit us

The Reaching Out Teahouse, the second location for our social enterprise, was created to share authentic Hoi An (which means peaceful meeting) through the tradition of drinking tea and coffee with friends and visitors. Tranquility is assured in our ancient house furnished with antiques. Our servers are all speech and hearing impaired and the joy of silence is reflected throughout the experience. Customers enjoy the high quality of our teas and coffees as well as the gracious service. All of our tableware is handcrafted in the style of the imperial families of Hue and is available at our workshop and retail store a two-minute walk from the teahouse. Fairtrade operating principles ensure that our disabled artisans and servers receive fair wages and work under safe conditions. We invite you to experience our teahouse and to let us know about your experience. We learn to make improvements to our products and services through customer feedback.​.
