A cozy and friendly place

If you want to see a different Sarajevo, not bustling and crowdy, you should come here. The selection of teas is great, staff are very friendly. You will enjoy the calm atmosphere and tea as we did.

I am very proud as the local that we have this kind of place in Sarajevo, tea oasis in the city center. They have amazing selection of teas and everything you need for tea serving. Every time I go there I discover something new. If only they would start serving proper afternoon tea with cakes it would be perfection... Reminds... More

A great tea shop. Even if you are not the biggest fan, or even if you are, this tea shop will bewilder you. A good tea. Great service. And a big selection of fine teas.

My friends and I visited F&S last Friday. We went there to buy a little bag of tea and to meet this wonderful man , the owner of the place. It was truly lovely. We ended up opening every box of tea, smelling it and trying cold ones. The tea-somielier was very nice and knew a lot about the ways... More

I went with a friend who lives in Sarajevo, and knowing my obsession with tea, took me here. I wasn't sure what to choose and Adnan took me through some options, asking what sorts of things I liked and then letting me smell them before choosing.... I had the chocolate and almond black tea which was great both with and... More

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
