This is the best place to chill out with a 'cuppa tae' - once you have made your choice from the amazing array of teas available. I love that the tea from made from tea leaves not tea bags. You can take the time to sit, relax and enjoy - read or play some of the board games .... I've... More

I went here with my friend who lives in Galway, who recommended it. There's a large variety of loose leaf teas. We had the black tea with hints of chocolate and it was very good. Good selection of cakes too, and they delicious. Very nice atmosphere, with games and books too

I discovered this place some years ago and came back lots of times with my friends. One evening there was a concert. One afternoon we played board games. You can even smoke shisha. The carrot cake is delicious and the tea just goes perfectly together with the oriental warm atmosphere.

The relaxed ambience of this lovely spot helps me when I want to forget about my problems, The staff is very nice and I find the place so peacefull, that it is particularly indicated for intimate conversations or solo reflection moments.

If you'd like a nice coffee and lunch, soup or a salad this is ideal. The location is brilliant and in nice weather the outdoor seating area at the rear is so atmospheric. Food and coffee are good and service is friendly. Well worth a visit.

My favorite place in Galway to drink tea! The personnel is very friendly. There are so many different flavours and you can smell them all before you choose one. It is also a great place to smoke shisha with some friends and drink a tea with it. I really recommend this place!! Only cash.

Myself + boyfriend came in the other evening for a quick tea as I had been here before and really wanted to show him the place. Was not disappointed at all; went for the vanilla rooibos tea and orange polenta cake - absolutely gorgeous. Such a lovely atmosphere, very cosy and welcoming. Could sit here for hours.
