An invigorating way to start the morning. A welcome pick-me-up on a long afternoon. And a social beverage, shared with friends. Tea is an integral part of cultures all around the world – from the UK, to Greece, Japan, China and further afield! We’ve put together the best 11 places in Berlin for a brew, no matter whether you fancy a laid-back cup and biscuit or a sophisticated high tea experience.

 Tip 1: Enjoy a taste of Tajikistan at Die Tadshikische Teestube

The Kunsthof, a historic courtyard in the heart of Berlin, is home to an array of galleries and artists’ studios – as well as a little corner of Tajikistan. No detail has been spared in conjuring up its immersive atmosphere, be it the hand-cut sandalwood columns or the fact that the chairs around each indoor table have been replaced with the traditional cushions. The same level of dedication applies to their teas: each entry on their lengthy list (and, of course, their menu of delicious Tajik dishes) is carefully prepared to the Teestube’s exacting requirements!

Where: Die Tadshikische Teestube, Oranienburger Straße 27, Mitte
When: open from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., Mondays to Fridays (early closing at 9 p.m. on Mondays), open from noon to 10 p.m. at weekends (early closing at 9 p.m. on Sundays)

With no fewer than three tea boutiques across Berlin, Tee Tea Thé are true experts in all things brewed, steeped and infused. Put their wide range of Ronnefeldt teas through its paces in their tearoom, accompanied by Tee Tea Thé’s freshly baked scones. A delicacy served with traditional strawberry jam, exotic ginger preserve or warming plum & cinnamon jam – not to mention their homemade clotted cream!

Where: Tee Tea Thé, Goltzstraße 2, Schöneberg
When: open every day from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. (early closing at 6 p.m. on Sundays)

Chén Chè, meaning ‘bowl of goodness’ provides a restorative oasis in the heart of Berlin. Offering a wide range of Eastern teas and tempting home-cooked Vietnamese delicacies, it’s ideal for a moment of calm in the middle of the day. And if you’re interested in experiencing Vietnamese tea customs for yourself, you can even book a special traditional tea ceremony!

MAMECHA Green Tea Café offers an amazing array of Japanese green teas, with some names you might recognise (like sencha) and some you might not (like genmaicha). If you fancy something cool and refreshing instead, their menu also offers a wide range of cold beverages, such as a chilled mugicha green tea. And if you’re just not a green tea fan, rest assured you’ll still be able to enjoy a brew – with fresh infusions of mint, lemongrass or ginger.

When: open from 12 noon to 7p.m., Mondays to Saturdays

Berlin’s Gardens of the World are home to two cafés specialising in tea – albeit in very different ways. The Cottage focuses on the British teatime tradition, offering everything from full-blown afternoon tea to a delicious slice of triple chocolate shortbread (all washed down with a cup of English Breakfast, of course!). The Chinesisches Teehaus, conversely, offers more than 30 rare Chinese teas – and if you can’t whittle it down to just one, you can pick a trio to enjoy during a tea tasting. There’s no doubt about it: tea is a truly global beverage!

Where: Gardens of the World, Blumberger Damm 44, Marzahn
When: The Cottage is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesdays to Sundays; the Chinesisches Teehaus is open sporadically over winter until 31 March, see website for details

A shop and café in one, Berliner Teesalon will immediately leave you feeling nostalgic.

And with various sweet treats on offer, too, it’s the perfect place to escape the modern world for an hour or two.
