I keep getting dragged to these quirky tea places wherever we visit by my wife. I always groan at first but have a great experience every time. Having read about this place, my wife had her mind(and heart) set on going there in our short 2-day prague visit. Tucked away off the Wenceslas square, we first noticed it when we did the end-to-end walk of the square. A small board hangs outside this place and it is quite easy to miss if you are not paying attention.
A small nondescript passage leads to a courtyard which is basically a mockery of the hustle and bustle of the square you stepped away from. The inside is dark,comfortable and quiet. To be honest I entered a little uncertainly wondering if this was going to be a high-concept you-better-know-your-tea type place. The ambiance is cliched but attractive nevertheless - oriental rugs, paintings and photos focusing on tea regions and random artifacts that seem to suggest 'exotic'. We entered an inner room where there were a few others sitting on different tables reading or working on a laptop. Once we settled in and exchanged what we thought of the place in whispers (it seemed too calm for us to disturb it with our normal voice), we opened the menu.
It is huge! After spending atleast 15 minutes going through countless tea types, both of us finally decided. I decided to try a mint-flavored tea (desert something - i forget the name) and my wife ordered one of the Indian teas. We 'summoned' the waiter with the ring of the little metal bell we were given along with the menu and ordered. The tea was brought in a little earthen pot with small earthen cups to pour and drink it out of. Neither of us really 'know' much about tea but I did love the flavors in mine which was bolder, sweeter and mintier. My wife's was more subtle and she enjoyed it as subtly :). We stayed for about 45 minutes and did not order food. In fact, we enjoyed the experience so much that we were wishing we had more time to spend at the place but we had a train to catch and had to leave. Will definitely visit it the next time we are in Prague!
