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.​.

Great tea and coffee. We also orderd the platter where you get to try all their biscuits. It was all very good and the girls serving you are the sweetest!
The decor itself makes it worth a visit. Lovely place!

Being hearing impaired, it made me so proud to see them go about their business and their ways of communicating with their customers and how customers were accepting of their disability. So quiet and loved it.

One of the special things about the Tea House is that our customers learn, as we have, that disabled people are actually "other abled" and can offer some gifts to the able bodied of understanding, creativity and sensitivity to the arts and things beautiful.

We stopped in here this morning for tea & cookies - you immediately realise why this place is rated number one (which is fully deserved). An island of tranquility in a busy town - all the more so at the moment with the frantic preparations for Tet!
Don't miss it.

We had tea and a selection of cookies this afternoon. The tea was good and the selection of biscuits and nibbles good, but the building is amazing, with furniture and crockery to match. We sat in the window watching the world go by. Great tea in a great cause!

So many people like the window seat at the Tea House, to watch the world go by…but the garden out back is also a treat…even more quiet and under the stars, particularly beautiful. Thanks for post telling us about your positive experience.

We had delicious tea, coffee and a variety of local biscuits at Reaching Out Tea House, but this was only part of the story. It is a beautiful place with really friendly people and a truly special experience. Not to be missed. …and if you find yourself liking their beautiful, well crafted tableware, don't forget to visit the workshop just around the corner...
