5 teahouses where to enjoy the good tea in Barcelona
We start the trip with a tea shop located in the Gothic Quarter of the city. This is the shop and tea shop Caj Chai inspired by Bohemian tea rooms in Prague. It is an ideal place to take a tea or infusion, and also to learn and meet interesting people, because they organize workshops, lectures and tastings! Do not forget to try their traditional Japanese, Indian, Arab pastries… or buy them at the store.
We continue with Caelum, a shop in the Old Town of Barcelona where you can taste sweets made by the monks and nuns from different monasteries and churches. You can stop time in his small cafe where tea is the protagonist. A divine temptation!
On Blai street, in the neighborhood of Poble-Sec, you will find the tearoom La Fibula, converted into restaurant. It is a classic tearoom with Andalusian decoration in which you can enjoy absolute peace and tranquility along its close and friendly ambience. It has an area with typical Arabic sweets cakes that completes its offering of teas. If you need to feel accompanied by fruity smell, aromas that seduce you, instrumental music… do not hesitate, this is your place!
La Teteria, near Plaça Lesseps (Saragossa, 113) is a space in which you can travel with the five senses, all at once, yes, and be part of an exceptional experience. They are specialists in infusions of China and Japan with a variety: green, yellow, black, red, flavored tea… but the best is to be surprised, relax, because they serve tea delicately and invite you to be part of a ritual that will make you forget the rush of everyday life. Yes, an experience you want to repeat.
Salterio, next to the Jewish quarter of Barcelona, is a tearoom that we love. The atmosphere is extremely welcoming, it is a small and intimate place, charming, surrounded by stone walls and low light… in which infusions are served like a real gift. It is an ideal place to go with your couple or friends. They also organize concerts of alternative bands and traditional music. Do we share with you a curiosity? It is one of the few places where they serve Turkish coffee.
