The selection of teas was great with nice cakes. You select the tea you want and this comes in a pot and the staff advised on how long to leave he tea to infuse. We visited the tea shop one several occasions to relax with a great cup of flavoured tea after wandering around Funchal. The tea certainly revived us... More

If you like like tea and scones with home made jam you will love the Teahouse. Absolutely delicious in every respect. Would definitely recommend.

We had been walking around town and came across this pretty place. The green tea and chocolate cake was just what was needed to revive us. Friendly staff, efficient service and well presented. Eat here if you can, it's on a quiet square so you can relax and enjoy your food.

We stopped here for a cup of tea after a heavy morning of sightseeing! There was an extensive selection of teas, blends and infusions of every type. Served in lovely China and set on a quiet pretty square near the cathedral, it really hit the spot!
