Bernschutz Teahouse – Where time can stand still

I’m writing these lines sitting on the little terrace of Bernschutz Teahouse in the Gradina Icoanei area (check the Gradina Icoanei article), on a lovely spring Sunday, sipping a perfectly prepared cup of jasmine tea and munching on a delicious carrot cake that you can only find here. If you want to take a break from all the hustle-and-bustle of a beautiful day in the old town, then search no more.

Once in the area, take a deep breath, put a smile on your face and let the superb music lure you inside, be prepared to be dizzied by the smell of freshly made tea in a Russian-looking samovar. Let the tiny and cute Japanese dolls welcome you from an old-looking white bookcase right from the entrance, enjoy the load of finely chosen books and beautiful tea accessories designed to give the famous 5 o’clock a whole new meaning and, last but not least, be ready to gasp looking at an entire wall of black tins storing the little leafy treasures.

You can either enjoy a cup of tea and one of the delicious cakes in the Baroque-wallpapered room with French-chic white tables and chairs or, if the weather is nice, at one of the tables on the terrace, surrounded by flower pots, old houses and… peacefulness.
