Tea shop / Thé Yam’tcha – Paris

30 novembre 2014 § Poster un commentaire

  Yam’tcha restaurant has closed this summer and a tea shop has opened recently on the same street. Yam’tcha was famous for proposing food pairing with teas. Adeline Grattard*, the Michelin Star chef is preparing Baos while her husband M. Chi wah Chan will welcome you with Henry in the tea shop. I tasted a black tea and a Blue tea with « Tchin Toï », donut like bread filled with chocolate. M. Chi wah Chan had lived in Hong Kong, and there is a wink at his origins on the tea menu: you can try « Lai Cha », a Hong Kong style tea with milk. It reminded me the breakfast I had during my journey in this city.

  If you do not know yet what to offer for Christmas, you can’t go wrong with fine teas from Yam’tcha. They have a selection of teas that will please to all connoisseur. You can ask Henry for the infusion and preparation details.

Teakha – Hong Kong

  Teakha was on top of my list of addresses to visit. I saw it in my cityguide, and their Green tea cheesecake looked very tempting. It is hidden in the calm Tai Ping Shan street, near Man Mo temple. The chinese characters « 茶 家 » are for Tea « 茶 » and « 家 » family, house.

They have a vast selection of drinks with tea, and I chose the Chai Tea Latte, (my favorite!) with the cheesecake. Their organic products are from Asia, and their pastries are prepared here.

I have tried so many Chai Latte in different places, I think Teakha’s Chai can be considered as one of the best I have tried until now. The spice was strong and was perfectly matching with my pastry. However, I wish the Green tea taste was more present.
