Where do I start? Zhao Zhou is the best tea house in Budapest, without a question. Once you’re on their doorstep, you’ll be greeted and welcomed with attention. The interior is made for you to be able to relax and spend quality time. The place...serves a great variety of teas and drinks like kombucha; but the most important aspect is that through a number of workshops and tastings the management brings the true tea culture to everyone who is open for it. Would highly recommend it if you’re in Budapest!More

My wife and I were on holiday in Budapest, wishing to get away from the crowds when we stumbled upon this amazing tea shop. We then spent two hours drinking tea and kombucha and having a lovely time.

One of the highlights of my trip to Budapest. Discovered it by mistake, but what a find. I'm a huge tea fan, and this is probably the best teashop I've ever been in. Cool, minimalistic decor, with a huge range of every tea you could...imagine. The staff were so friendly and we had a nice conversation. The tea was really well priced and I bought some to take home. Would recommend to all tea fans for a quiet stop in Budapest. Will certainly be returning one day!More

Awesome place to chill and drink a tea. You can choose between like 50-100 different teas. Staff is extremely helpful. Atmosphere is calm and really helps you to find peace for some time in a busy city.

I attended a tea course held by the owner of Zhao Zhou so I thought why not try his tea shop. The place has a wide selection of quality Chinese tea from ancient trees and some Japanese as well. The atmosphere helps you get in...the right mood for a tea session (esp. if you manage to get a seat by the window looking over the Chain Bridge and people walking by on the street) and the servers are also knowledgeable and friendly. For the above I would give 5 stars however I think their on the spot prices are too high, you pay the same amount for 5 grams of tea as if you bought 30-50 gr for home. As a side note I would also make some improvements to the restroom area, it's not very nice. I encourage everyone to sit in and try the special tea leaves they have but me personally, I'll just buy their teas and prepare at home.More

It was an exceptional experience! The staff are customer focused and very helpful in choosing from their unique selection of teas. The atmosphere is very calm and refreshing and this is all in the heart of Buda. The stories behind the teas are incredible and...they tell you those stories if you are interested. Will definitely visit again when in Budapest and try the breakfast option. In the meantime, we are enjoying the teas we bought at Zhao Zhou. I highly recommend it!More
