The moment you get into Caj Chai you feel surrounded by relaxing energy and very good aromas of the teas they sell there (more than 100!) It's a place where you can seat and enjoy your tea or simply buy it and go home. I love their traditional Chai! It comes with a piece of sugared ginger... my tip is...... More

This is definitely the best tea room I've been to. Awesome tea ware that they also sell, good water temperature, broad tea selection, great atmosphere and helpful staff. Each tea is around 5€, more expensive than most places but definitely worth it.

My friend and I enjoyed a lovely matcha ice tea in this cafe, which smells delicious of tea and has a very relaxing atmosphere. Great for a break from the hectic city centre! Staff is also very friendly.

We were recommended this tea shop by a local and were very glad that we were able to visit. From the minute to step inside the aromas of all the tea just hit you. You really need to take a minute just to take in the scents. We stopped for some tea and cake and again, we weren't disappointed. The... More

My husband and I love sharing connections with new people when we travel and were so fortunate to make Antonio (owner of Caj Chai) our new friend. He created the most amazing experience for us by hosting a traditional tea ceremony. We held it in the square outside of the tea shop, first thing in the morning when it was... More

Despite the name, they actually have a lot of teas to choose from, especially some rare Chinese ones. I have not tasted the ones that should be purchased fresh every year so I do not know how long they keep them for, but the Wu Yi oolongs & some Taiwanese oolongs are absolutely fantastic. I drank tea in the middle... More

I'm not a coffee drinker so this place is amazing. They make the best iced chai I've had in Barcelona. Slighty spicy and not overly sweet.

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
