After an entertaining & informative walking tour of Old Montreal, we were happy to escape the rain & enjoy this highly recommended tea room. We couldn't have been happier with the wide choice of teas & vegetarian menu. The menu only had 6 items & they were all superb. Highlights were the "chicken" kebabs made from tofu & the biscuits....

A few steps from Notre-Dame and you will be transported to a "far hilly field of tea in China". This is what happens when you enter to Ming Tao Xuan. An incredible saloon invites you to try one of those options of tea. Medicinal, Oolong, Japanese...varieties abound. The shop saloon itself worths the visit. Pots, figures, statues...a real gallery.

The first time we went in we thought it was just a shop selling dry chinese tea but it also sells tea and has a limited menu. The lovely owner or her son assist with a choice of tea and explain how best to serve it. We went back three times for tea and a perfect little cheesecake. Almost noone... More

This is a tea house that has an amazing selection of tea, tea sets, and also serves food. We are almost always served by the owner of the shop and he is happy to give extensive descriptions and recommendations for tea. We go to this shop almost every time we are in Montreal.

This is one of our favorite stops every time we are in Montreal. The perfect place to relax and regroup as you plan the rest of the days adventure. Same block as the Hotel St. Sulpice and the Basilica de Notre Dame. The ladies who work in there are genuinely excited to show you how to prepare and drink your... More

This was our 2nd visit to this little tea house in Old Montreal. It's a beautiful shop with lots of tea sets to peruse. The tea is expertly served, and the mango salad was yummy! Thanks, Mr. Lee, for being open on Christmas Day!

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

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
