Really lovely little place tucked away off the streets of Porto. Lovely tea, friendly service, good food. Definitely choose your time off day wisely though as we went when there were quite a few children around so it wasn’t the relaxing experience we were looking...for. Nothing the staff can do about that though! Loved the atmosphere otherwise.More

Cute hidden place suitable for longer visits and just chilling in the garden. The place offers tea of the day and also some small snacks to eat.

I contacted the restaurant because I wanted to celebrate my birthday there, drinking tea and eating a piece of cake. I sent an e-mail giving them all useful information, which room I would have loved to have, and for how many people, at teatime. They...answered with the lunch menu (?). When I arrived with my friends, they hadn't reserved the table, but they still had some places to sit. So it was as my e-mail had been completely forgotten. We choose the room, but, after one hour, the waiter told us to move to another room, because someone booked that room for.... a birthday! We then moved with our teapots and pieces of cake to the room next to it. Organization must be improved, the place is really nice. Shame for the overall service, from the first contact by e-mail until the end, when I paid.More

Amazing tea selection and nice sandwiches in a very relax setting. Teas are approx 2.50 eur each. Just beautiful and perfect to unwind.

Don't go if you don't know how to recognize the different qualities of tea! Today I had a very bad surprise. I ordered Formosa Top Superior oolong tea, the service was slower than usual, I waited 20 minutes and the waiter came back because he...could not remember my choice. I waited 10 minutes more, I went to the kitchen to know what was happening and when my tea came to the table I found out it was NOT the tea I was waiting for. I could CLEARLY taste it was Milky Oolong so I went to the kitchen one more time to ask and the waiters seemed to be really embaracced. They told me they finished the first quality so they gave me a similar one...WITHOUT ASKING! After my complaint they decided to offer my tea. I told them of course I was not intended to pay for what I didn't ask and I told them it was a very bad behaviour because it was 100% mockery. So sad!More

If you want to choose a place to take any tea from anyway from the world it’s the right place. You have a beautiful garden, an old house well decorated, with the best attention of the employees, you can have cakes, home made, juices and...of course the millions different kind of tea. And adding the music you are in the heart of Porto and you are transporting for were you desireMore

I liked this place, which seems to be operated (owned?) by young women. This is not a hippie place at all, unless by "hippie" one means Asian (Indian and buddhist) decorations, art & sculptures, which are presented with taste and flair. The service was friendly...and faster than most restaurants I've been to in Porto. Both the soup and curry were excellent. I ordered a Bolivian green tea, the taste of which was a bit too subtle (under-steeped?) but this is a small price to pay for sitting in a nice garden, amidst the birdsong, flowers and trees. One of my favorite places in Porto.More
