Description: The Reaching Out Teahouse, the second location for our social enterprise, was created to share authentic Hoi An (which means peaceful meeting) through the tradition of drinking tea and coffee with friends and visitors. Tranquility is assured in our ancient house furnished with antiques. Our servers are all speech and hearing impaired and the joy of silence is reflected throughout the experience. Customers enjoy the high quality of our teas and coffees as well as the gracious service. All of our tableware is handcrafted in the style of the imperial families of Hue and is available at our workshop and retail store a two-minute walk from the teahouse. Fairtrade operating principles ensure that our disabled artisans and servers receive fair wages and work under safe conditions. We invite you to experience our teahouse and to let us know about your experience. We learn to make improvements to our products and services through customer feedback.​.

I stopped at Reaching Out Tea House multiple times during my stay in Hoi An. As stated in other reviews, the tea shop is a quiet break from the heat and rows of tourist junk found in the many shops of Hoi An. The tea menu is short, but of high quality and well presented. The staff is helpful, friendly and welcoming. I would recommend a visit to those visiting the city, as the shop is a great place to relax.

This stands out among the tailor, leather goods and accessories shops dotted all over Hoi An Ancient Town. Good selection of tea and coffee. Their coconut treats (coffee and green-tea flavoured) are must-tries. To top it all, you know this helps the deaf earn a living and get some respect.

Our employees have blossomed in the atmosphere of the Tea house, where they are able to interact with the hearing world in a whole new way. "Respect" is a lovely descriptor for the reactions that our customers are having to their caring service.

An oasis of calm in a busy Hoi An, we went twice. This was a lovely place to chill out, work you way through the tasty nibbles and enjoy a range of well presented tea or coffees. It was a great place to sit and relax, we have never been to anywhere similar.

The staff were very helpful and friendly.

The Reaching Out Tea House is definitely worth a visit, our only regret is that there isn't one where we live; it would be our favourite tea/ coffee shop.

We appreciate return customers. You may not have a tranquil tea house in your home town, but nice to know that all of our teas and coffees are for sale in bulk so that you can take the good taste home.

Everything about this cafe is excellent. The presentation of the teas, the gentle and very attentive service, the surroundings and the tranquil atmosphere, all contribute to a very enjoyable and relaxing experience. Go there, you won't regret it!

Reaching out is an organisation that helps the disabled and the teahouse has hearing impaired staff serving customers. For this reason, there are little writing blocks at each table with simple instructions like bill, order , water etc to aid in the process. Nice place to spend a quiet evening and drink

The Tea house has proven to be just what we wanted....a place for our speech and hearing staff to engage in meaningful work and for our customers to enjoy the tranquility of silence while having a tea or coffee.
