“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

Next to the local mosque, a very unlikely place to find a coffee and tea shop. We went there primarily to but chinese tea .... but were surprised with the overall experience ... we had a tea tasting session and experienced how to make chinese tea the right way. Jessica (the owner) spoke very good english and was very knowledgeable about tea's.

Great place to relax and also catch up with some wifi access.

Dont expect food just an experience to drink chinese tea.

“Taking care of the visitors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Very nice place to relax and enjoy air conditioning. The owner, Jessica, and her colleague, Helen, will make sure you feel home whether enjoying a coffee, tea or cold water. They will make sure you are not missing an essential of Xi'an. They care about where you are from and will listen to you. Very nice discussions with them. We had a very good time.

“Great coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

I as a little concerned when we arrived there, not much coffee paraphernalia in sight but they delivered very nice coffees. It's a refuge from the bustle of the Muslim quarter and very near the Mosque entrance.

“Welcome refuge with decent coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

The location near the mosque and muslim quarter is great, the coffee was good and Jessica's helpfulness with travel advice was welcomed. Also appreciated were the complimentary Chinese shortbread-like treats! If you visit in summer the air conditioning and iced coffee varieties a great tonic.

“Interesting combination of coffee and tea house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

the good: it's just next to the mosque and the bazaar, if you want to escape the crowds. The place is quiet, clean with friendly staff who speak good english and Chinese and can give you all sorts of cultural advice (from tea to history facts).

the bad: maybe it was a single case, but I got my espresso in a cold cup (which made the espresso cold, while it should be drank hot). They didn't quite understand, however they immediately offered to make me a new one.
