Mago Merlino Tea House – Not only tea

If you are looking for conventional tea, this is probably not the place for you. If you are looking for an atmosphere, an ambient to relax in or reflect, Mago Merlino Tea House will take a place in your heart.

I discovered it by chance and even if the cost of the annual membership (it’s a cultural club) of € 10 was pushing me away at first, once I entered I fell in love with the “old Syria” ambient that’s been the same since it opened in 1977. To be honest the prices are a little bit high and for tea is easy to spend € 10, but the experience is well worth it. The owner Rocco is an incredible expert and will be happy to talk with you about everything from tea information to the philosophy of the existence! When you see him preparing your tea it seems you’re participating in an old ritual.

Jazz or ethnic music concerts take place on special dates.
