Description: The Reaching Out Teahouse, a second location for our social enterprise, was created because we wanted 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 hand crafted 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. In addition to ceramics, we feature embroidered tablecloths and unique accessories. Fair trade 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 and good reports encourage others to find their way to our shop to enjoy the silence.

We heard of this purely through tripadvisor and loved it. While the tea may be more than most places in Vietnam it is definitely worth it. It is a great cause for the disabled of Hoi An and is run by hearing and speech impaired. The tea and atmosphere was fantastic and the silence was very peaceful. Definitely a place to stop and rest/relax for 30 minutes or so. You won't be disappointed.

My boyfriend and I came here after seeing the reviews on TA. He got the coffee taster and I the tea taster. It was great. The atmosphere was refreshing and the girls were lovely. We will be returning!

The flight of three varieties of either our tea or coffee are certainly the best way to catch the flavours of our organic blends. Do come again!

Charming service and flavour of all the drinks and snacks was excellent.

By focusing on our tea and coffee and a few Vietnamese snacks we are able to maintain the high quality of our products and minimize clatter of food prep, in order to keep the atmosphere as serene as possible. Hope our ranking as #1 Restaurant is not too confusing for our Trip advisor audience.

Wonderful teas, great selection, fantastic cause, cool experience. In all honesty, it was a really fun and novel thing to do, and it was one of the more unique things I did in Vietnam, in my opinion. (I mean, I loved Ha Long Bay, but taking a cruise isn't UNIQUE).

Isn't it a shame that it is so hard to find an authentic experience in Vietnam?

Our offerings of local tea, coffee and traditional snacks, served with warm Vietnamese hospitality house has certainly caught the attention of visitors.

We are happy that your experience at the Reaching Out Tea ranked as one of your most unique.

You probably recognized some of our tea and coffee as being mountain grown near your home in Dalat. We are really proud of serving locally grown, organic products.
