This is a special place in Sarajevo, a little off the beaten path but worth finding. The staff is very friendly and helpful to non-tea-experts too. They serve also delicious cold tea which we appreciated in the midday summer heat. Prices are very reasonable and all the tea varieties are beatifully packed and presented on the shelves. Definitely a recommendation... More

Franz & Sophie is a tea house that has a huge variety of teas on offer. They can be enjoyed on the spot, or you can bring them home with you. The owner is very friendly and just like with the owners of Dzirlo Tea House, he made us feel genuinely welcome in his establishment. We wanted a cup of... More

In general I am a big fan of tea rooms and loose tea. Franz & Sophie's is a great little getaway. It is relaxing, friendly and (importantly for Sarajevo) smoke free place to go. The tea is of the highest quality and the range is extensive. Adnan is extremely knowledgable about his tea and obviously enjoys sharing his knowledge with... More

Franz & Sophie has the best variety of tea in the country. Tea is sold by the gram. The owner is a tea connoisseur. Each bag of tea you buy comes with the name and brewing instruction. He also usually includes an interesting sample or two with your purchase and is there to advise you about the many varieties of... More
