O’ways Teacafé brings two opposites together. The addictive energy of Origin coffee and the contemplative composure of Nigiro tea merge in a stylish space featuring raw brick walls, high gloss wooden tables and exotic orchids.
The menu offers more than 64 Nigiro teas, sourced from the great origins including Africa and Asia, and steeped to perfection in glass tea pots. Speciality coffee beans sourced from Africa and transformed through artisan roasting are expertly brewed by barista’s trained at the Origin Coffee Roasting Company. The menu changes frequently so as to keep it fresh and up to date. It has four parts: Let’s breakfast, Let’s lunch, Let’s go East and Let’s go sweet. The result is an invitation to savour something new. A highlight of the café is the ceremonial tea table, which can be booked for tea ceremonies led by master tea merchant Mingwei Tsai.
Takeaways are available for people on the go and there is a retail section selling bags of Nigiro tea leaves, Origin coffee beans as well as tea and coffee utensils such as canisters, cups and saucers and tea pots.
