Great tea, quiet atmosphere

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

First of all - Franz&Sophie is not a Restaurant. The only thing you can eat there is a cookie which you can enjoy along with an amazing selection of delicious sorts of green, black white tea (or any other tea sorts). Adnan (owner) is the most friendly guy in the world, his tea knowledge is tremendous and he makes you... More

This is a lovely tea shop in the Austrian-Hungarian section of town. The owner is super helpful, there are tons of different varieties of tea, and the ambiance is very relaxing. I'd highly recommend for anyone stopping through Sarajevo.

Once you come inside you don't really have to do much other then sit and relax. The wonderful staff comes, greets you asked you what you like and then the aromas start. Each time i come the person working brings a few teas to explain and for me to smell. They recommend something for you depending on your health and... More
