When you step into this cafe/shop, you will be welcomed by so many wonderful tea aromas and a very friendly owner. Take your time and choose the tea that most suites you and try some of them while listening to some quiet jazz in the background. The cafe is often visited by students from the nearby music academy and international... More

A huge collection of teas, and every tea we tried was amazing. The atmosphere is also great, only 3 tables, nice music and amazing service. The room smells great and prices are fair. Huge recommendation.

Please, for goodness sake, go to this tea shop. It's right around the corner from where you'll probably be anyway, and yet the street is tucked away and quiet. The man who owns it is the most sincere, calm man you could hope to meet, and he knows his stuff. I spent three afternoons in a row here, listening to... More

After struggling for over a week without an proper cup of tea, we visited Sarajevo and came across this gem, a tea heaven, actually only wanted a cup of English tea, but was introduced to some delicious blends by very friendly and very knowledgeable staff. A great new experience and a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

It is away from the center and Old Town, and up an incline, and the google map is all wrong, but once you find this place, you can sit and sip teas from all over the world (well India, China and Sri Lanka make up the entire tea world!). I reached just before 10 (the opening time) and waited for... More

Staff is nice and there is lots of tea to choose from. I'm not much of a tea drinker but I'm still happy I paid a visit. I would recommend going as a group and sampling many different types of tea and split them among you if, like me, you want to do a tasting and you aren't too sophisticated.... More

Don't think you will just drink a cup of tea at Franz & Sophie, but regard it as a tea experience! The really friendly engaging owner has an exquisite knowledge on all the teas available and you will immediately find yourself a nice conversion topic, whether it is about tea or something else. A true gem in Sarajevo and really... More
