If you look for a place to chill during sightseeing Colombo this is exactly what you need. On a shady courtyard of the Old Dutch Hospital, with good music and modern menu (never seen soo many teas!😍). I just had lunch here and very nice chat with a friendly staff. They also have wifi😊

Tea has managed to blend cultural divides and is a beverage that brings all different kinds of people together because of the comfort it provides before or after a long day. The Heladiv Tea Club embraces and celebrates this wonderful quality of tea and has built its brand ethos around it.

HTC wishes to reintroduce the beauty of certain age-old tea drinking rituals and share the experience of its consumption and the feelings that it incites, with the public.

The flagship outlet of HTC is located at the new shopping precinct and architecturally stunning, former "Dutch Hospital" building, at Bank of Ceylon Mawatha Colombo(opposite the World Trade Center). HTC has been designed to reflect sentiments of eras past as well as to respect the modern constraints of contemporary style. It has an understated Baroque extravagance that will transform each visit into an occasion.

HTC is a three fold concept, although it is first and foremost a Tea Salon, it is also a Dessert Bar and Boutique. The objective behind this is to provide customers with the ultimate consumer experience. To simultaneously indulge and inspire.

Visit us today and become apart of the tea revolution!
