WHY IS THIS SHOP INTERESTING TO VIEW?

The Gourmet Tea is a modern and über-colourful tea house that serves a vast (35) selection of green, black and red blends.

 

The colors of the little tins of the 35 blends offered by “the gourmet tea” are the inspiration for the first teahouse of this brand. The walls were peeled, the structure and the bricks which became apparent were painted with white color, the original floor was maintained, the roof was lowered in order to eliminate interference of the beams and allow the indirect and continuous lightning which sweeps the walls emphasizing the depth of the long and narrow space of the building. The only furniture made of plywood on which a colorful adhesive was applied, organizes all the space of the shop. It gathers balcony, store, box, tidbits and staging area. The minimalist organization of the space associated with the simplicity of finishes allows the product (tea) stands out in a precise and smooth way.

 

Here, tea is taken very seriously, so seriously in fact that the infusion time is calculated to the second with a timer. Even the home-baked cakes are enhanced with tea – white tea muffin, chai apple crumble, and so forth. Teas and tea accessories can be purchased on the spot and it’s all organic.
