Kintsugi Tea & Cakes – Japanese treats & teas

I found my place. My cozy winter bubble. Turin was missing a spot like “Kintsugi”. A spot to relax and recharge. You’re surrounded by neutral colors, happy faces and great food and beverages. And you only chill and enjoy your experience.

There is a great range of teas and beverages (hot and cold) to choose from, with a great description of taste and smell to help you in your choice. I highly suggest asking the girls, who are tea sommeliers.

THEN… cakes.

You can choose between bigger and smaller creations (cookies, mini cakes).
If you choose “big”, I only tell you to forget the excessive amount of sugar you’re used to, open your mind and play!

Maybe you’ll have to pour something to complete your dish, or maybe you’ll have to compose things.

I’m not showing you any photos or sharing more details.

Only one more note about the name: “Kintsugi” is the ancient Japanese art of mending broken objects (usually ceramics) with melted gold. The idea behind this practice is that the broken piece was beautiful when it was whole, but It became more beautiful and unique by being mended and thanks to the accident.

I think this is a great life lesson. 

PS: if there are more than two of you, please book your place.
