Stumbled upon this place while walking around Old Montreal. Tea selection is interesting. The explanation about the tea and its preparation are what make the experience extraordinary. We had the cookies that war every tasty. The shop also sells tea pots and tea sets, along with some jewelry and statues. Very nice place.

It's so beautifully designed, with so many earthenware pots and china cups and statues and one with a running water, you feel transported magically to the heart of China. The shopkeepers are so good you can ask for any advice on tea. On my first visit, I told them I have a cold and they suggested honey ginger tea which... More

This is an amazing tea shop. It sold a huge variety of teas, the menu was an entire book with a great description of each tea, the flavour and the location it comes from. The sheer number of tea pots and cups was amazing, and well worth the visit. While the food menu was limited, it is a tea shop... More

Tea shop close to Notre Dame Cathedral. Tea is really the focus here and, in fact, when I asked about food they told me it was limited. While this was true, it's still a good place to stop away from the hustle and bustle and within the old town area. I had the vegetarian chicken which was served with a... More

The wait staff is very nice and knowledgable about their product. The selection of teas to choose from is nice and the prices are quite reasonable. There are vegetarian sides to order with the tea if you so desire. They also have a nice selection of tea and tea accessories to purchase if you so desire. A great spot for... More

As a native Montrealer, I'm ashamed to admit that I've never noticed this little tea house that sits inconspicuously on a corner on St Sulpice. Apparently, it has been in operation for 10 years. As soon as you walk in, you are transported to another world: the scents are unfamiliar yet intriguing; the decor is ornate, typical of Asian cultures... More

Excellent tea shop, across from the Notre Dame Basilique. Stopped into this shop after a carriage ride, the tea selection was incredible. Dozens of teas. The presentation was like drinking tea for the first time. We were served on proper tea sets which added to the experience. The prices were reasonable so we grabbed some tea to take home as... More

The juxtapose of an authentic Chinese Team Room directly across from Notre Dame in Old Montreal somehow seemed perfectly matched -- but that's how Montreal is. Everything just "fits." We loved the whole experience of the tea ceremony so much that we went back a second time during our trip, and also brought home a nice selection of loose leaf... More

Who knew? What a lovely experience--a new one for us. Grandma loved the easy half block walk from Hotel St Sulpice, and the informative tea service. Three of us each ordered a different tea, and each came with a different service and setting. Lovely! A special experience on a cold gray day.

This tea house will host an elegant tea service to demonstrate its fine teas. My family sampled four different teas as well as four foods from their small menu. They sell teas, tea sets, and other Chinese artifacts. A beautiful establishment.
