A fun place to try dishes with tea cooked as one of the ingredients. Dim sum style of small dishes are interesting to treat guests. There are branches in Canada so guess the creativity works well.

It was hot and humid, so we stopped into Cha for Tea for an orange juice and a green tea with fruit. Both were great, very good flavors. Good prices and not too busy!

So, in Taiwan, this place is actually not that bad. However, here in Irvine, the food & drinks are only mediocre if comparing to Taiwan flavor standard. Bubble milk tea is terrible when comparing to Class 302(less amount with not so right flavor.) Food is ok-ish. It's not fantastic but if you really want some Taiwanese cuisine...and you're not able... More

Cha For Tea's speciality is tea-based cuisine, from tempura tea leaves as a snack to tea oil flavoured noodles. All of it is very tasty and there are reasonable veggie options.

We went here for lunch. Food was good (I had green tea chicken and the lycee mousse). It was a nice experience, but we found the price was high. You can eat just as well or better all over Taipei. Service was slow.

We like Cha for Tea for many reasons. First, the decoration is classical Chinese, filled with beautiful pieces of Chinese calligraphy. Second, there are a variety of tea, hot and cold. The bubble tea is particularly good, better than many other shops. Third, the dimsum is delicious. Their food is very clean and healthy. Fourth, the service is usually very... More

But after I order and was waiting for my drink, long que starts again. Tried the Green Milk Tea with ice-cream. Yumms! Not too sweet and... More

I went to this restaurant with a trusted local friend and our business associates. The main dining area was pleasantly lit and tastefully decorated with tea items and artifacts. Our group however sat in a private room which was not as interestingly decorated. Our local host explained, "Everything on the menu is made from tea or uses tea as an... More

Early in our stay in Taipei we simply couldn't get a grip on the restaurants. It's really hard to find an English menu and many of the places just didn't look very friendly to a Westerner's sensitive guts. Desperately walking the streets one day we stumbled into the Cha For Tea in the Tea Culture Institute building at 62-64 Henyang... More
