Imagine entering a beautiful oriental oasis: the warm colors, the rich scents, the involving atmosphere. That overall zen feeling. Interested? Follow me.
At Rua Miguel Bombarda, there’s an unsuspecting door, leading to a narrow corridor that will take you to Rota do Chá: the tea lover heaven. Welcome. Take a seat in the main room or enjoy the sunshine out back, in the garden. No tables available? No problem. There’s another room upstairs. Each space seems to have its own character, taking you on a different journey, providing a different experience.
Soak in the oriental vibe and get ready to dive into the tea encyclopedia that serves as a menu. Black tea, green tea, white tea… Floral, fruity, spicy. There’s more than 300 blends to choose from.
Sugar cravings? Homemade fudge chocolate cake, mango pie or apple muffins may be available for your delight. Ask the staff, take your pick and enjoy.
Whether you want to chill out after a day of walking around Porto or you’re looking for a place to hang out and enjoy a relaxed afternoon, a ‘cup of zen’ at Rota do Chá may just be the perfect option.
