This place is very warm and cozy, and has a lovely old-fashioned atmosphere. The savoury snacks are wonderful, and the sweet pastries are a real treat. They serve different kinds of loose tea ready steeped, but you can also pick what you want and they steep it for you. There are also tea bags available, and then they have the house ice tea, the flavour of which they change from time to time. All in all, this is a lovely place to go, even just to experience the atmosphere. Only downside is that the place is kind of on a small side, and it may be occasionally very full. But then you just have to squeeze in! :)



I fell in love with tea some years ago. I have never liked coffee much, and when I really started to learn about tea, I was just enchanted.

I love to try different teas and to find new expereriences. My current favourite is oolong tea from Taiwan, but other staple items in my cupboard include darjeeling, chai, some fine green tea and of course white tea for those delicate moments.

I was thinking how to grade teas here in my tealog, and for now I decided to rate every cup in a separate log (so that e.g. 1st & 2nd steeps probably are found as separate notes). The scale I composed for myself for giving the smiley/number grade, is about the following:

0-20 No no! Why on earth do I have this tea? And what made me drink it? This is bad. As bad as bad goes.

21-40 Better than worst. But still not very close to good. I might just finish the whole cup of this, but will not drink it again, if avoidable.

41-60 Your basically ok tea. Not a very special experience though.

61-80 Very nice and drinkable tea. Enjoyable.

81-100 One of the best teas I’ve tasted, would definitely like to have more!
