This tea shop is unlike any that can be found in the surrounding area. The clientele, however, are a certain ubiquitous bohemian type found around the West End and University area. First off, the tea menu is unrivaled, and any fan ought to check this establishment out. The food selection is vegetarian, and the staff stresses its 'ethical' and vegan credentials. It's this attitude that leads me to the conclusion that Tchai Ovna is going to strongly divide opinion. If you're a fan of wool sweaters, political activism, and collect vinyls, I'm sure this will become your favourite spot in no time - and you will find many likeminded people there. Those of a more 'mainstream' persuasion, should check it out at least once, but will most likely find themselves stepping down a rung on the hipster ladder - Offshore is nearby and maintains an artsy crowd without being overbearing.
