So many choices...

We enjoyed our visit here very much. The staff were clearly very knowledgeable about tea and very helpfully explained about the different varieties on offer. Would definitely recommend it as a place to hang out and try something new!

The selection of teas is very good. Adnan, who is a genuine Tea Sommelier and the owner of the teashop, is a great help. Not only can you buy tea and tea accessories (lovely cups, pots etc.) and get excellent advise at the shop, but you can also waste your afternoon in the calming atmosphere of the shop by reading...

This small tea shop is something unusual in this city. Cosy, small, and very home like, Franz & Sophie offers a huge selection of teas. Next to that, you can also buy all the tea drinking equipment you need. Staff is extremely pleasant, and there for you, to help you with the tea selection. Simply, when you enter this place,...

This was the great idea to open tea shop with name of Franz and Sophie. On 28 June 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir presumptive to the Austro-Hungarian throne, and his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg, were shot dead in Sarajevo. The assassination led directly to the First World War. European history was written here, and the tasty teas... More

Let yourself be guided by Adnan, truly a master of organic teas. Visit when you need a quiet place to settle down after a busy day of visiting the sites in Sarajevo. Be ready to learn something new about tea. Be surprised by the multitude of organic blends and straight teas. Feel at home and enjoy a great pot of... More

Wonderfully quaint tea shop with a very knowledgable, friendly staff. I loved all of the recommended teas and was very grateful for the time that was taken to show and explain the benefits of the teas that I was interested in. I only wish this same tea shop was in my hometown complete with the gracious and kind owner and... More

This was a lovely place to sit and do some reading and writing (plus they have wifi if you need the Internet). They have all kinds of tea and the proprietor is very friendly and knowledgeable. It reminded me of the tea cafes that I love back in the Bay Area.

180 different types of tea - we bought some to take home too. Amazing choice, biscuits and honey on the tables too (nice addition) and just very laid back, friendly cool place to be after you've had a hectic day.

This is one of those places which you know is run for the love of it. The owner is a doctor who studied and has a vast knowledge of teas and all things tea. The shop/cafe is one of those places just to hang out and try good things. The selection is overwhelming but gives you a chance to try... More
