I stumbled upon this place one afternoon whilst browsing the shops. As an avid tea drinker I was in heaven. Such a large range of teas on offer and the knowledgeable staff really make an effort to explain what is in each one and what the health benefits are. They do offer food as well with a good range of... More

I was doing some shopping in the area when a friend persuaded me to stop in to NovelTeas and I was happy I did. I was a little overwhelmed at all the tea selections but the owner quickly calmed my fears and we were able to start with the classic Japanese green tea. The pastries are amazing and I vow... More

Thank you Coretta for your kind words. It encourages us to give the best of ourselves to you - our customers. Your comment of the tea selection being overwhelming at first is a common one, but like you, once I familiarize you about all the teas we do have, it's not so overwhelming. And tea should always provide a sense... More

Tea salons get my attention everywhere I go, because I prefer light meals with refreshing, non carbonated, overly sweet beverages. Novel Teas was perfect! The vast selection of teas and salads was a bit overwhelming at first, but I was able to narrow my choices by selecting things I hadn't had before. So I chose the Veg to Please (or... More

Dear Ms411, Thank you for visiting us and for your wonderful words. We are delighted that you enjoyed your salad and espresso tea, both of which are unique to us on the island - our salad ingredients are rich in herbs and spices but our dressings are truly unique as we infuse a variety of our teas in them (like...

I'm a bit of a Starbucks Soy Green Tea junkie so I was missing my fix this week. I finally stumbled upon this place and I am so glad I did. I had the Green Matcha Bubble Tea Iced and was in heaven! As well they have Red Cappuccinos which are basically decaffinated Roibois tea Cappuccinos. Which I didn't have... More

My friend, a chef in Barbados, took me to this lovely shop twice. There are so many choices, I can only tell you that so far the smoothies/teas with the little jelly bubbles have been great and so much fun to drink! Our second stop we included a spinach pastry and a cheddar turnover. Both were terrific. I also bought... More

Light breakfasts and lunches with a wide selection of teas and drinks. Mostly takeaway orders with very limited indoor seating. Popular with locals.

Great food with lots of veggie options, yummy teas, and very friendly owner. Great quick lunch stop - walked here from the Accra Beach Hotel and then took my little picnic lunch to the beach to enjoy the ocean views!
