Tea breaks on Saturday afternoon with fancy crystal cups and teapot like these is really something new for me.

My good friend brought me to this chic Tea Cafe to experienced the ambiance.

They serves all kind of tea. From well know countries such as Japan, China, England to more exotic one like Chile and Africa.

Look how delicate this blue crystal tea cup. One only served this during an important guess visits.

A transparent crystal teapot with mini clay stove as a warmer.

Do you notice the metal coiled wire? The reason it is there is to prevent the tea leaves flown to the cup.

How to clean it? Simply unhook the wire from the teapot mouth, cool huh? :)

Green tea drink, written in Chinese 绿茶 meaning “true” tea.

Camellia sinensis is the scientific name for it.

Here we have the brown cup, where all the tea leaf are soaked inside with hot water.

The wooden spoon to filter out stray leaf that come out with the water while pouring.

The drinking cup and the last one is the sweets to soften the bitter taste of the tea.

The tea has to be poured to the first cup before it goes to the drinking cup.

Here is the crystal teapot with rattan handle to store hot water for the tea.

Please be careful not to touch the metal wires, noticed that the pot itself are written in Japanese Calligraphy

Green tea is very popular in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, and the Middle East.
Over the last few decades green tea has been subjected to many scientific and medical studies to determine the extent of its long-purported health benefits, with some evidence suggesting that regular green tea drinkers have lower chances of heart disease and developing certain types of cancer.

Tea break or Afternoon tea is a light meal typically eaten between 3pm and 5pm.

Afternoon Tea is generally available in high-end hotels, restaurants and cafés.

many British take a much simpler refreshment consisting of tea and biscuits at teatime.

Now if you excuse me, I need to enjoy my tea before it turned cold :)

Which tea flavor do you like the most?
