Tête à Thé

Discover the age old art of tea

If you find yourself in the neighborhood, or if you want to get away from the frenzy of Milan, Tête à Thé is definitely the place for you. This gem, which has been listed for its fourth consecutive year by the prestigious Gambero Rosso guide, is a true oasis of relaxation. To find it, just stroll the streets of the old town center of Abbiategrasso and stop at Via Santa Maria.

Tête à Thé was born in the eighties, and presented a business challenge in a country that still shows little appreciation for tea. It still remains Italy’s second oldest tea room. The restaurant is decorated in a medieval style with exposed brick and luxurious chandeliers. It is a striking and timeless mix. The atmosphere is warm and its a welcoming place to spend an afternoon or an intimate evening chatting over a steaming hot drink with old friends.

Calm is the keyword here, as calmness is what is required when enjoying fine teas. That is why, in fact, that the tea house is located in a place only accessible by foot. The ancient history of tea holds secrets and traditions which is unsurprising given that, after water, it is the second most consumed beverage in the world.

Precisely for this reason, Tête à Thé organizes the monthly ‘Tea Class’ to explore the history and culture and the different flavors of tea. I strongly recommend you try the classes because I a sure that, like me, you will be fascinated by the stories related to the mysterious origins of tea.

Tête-à-Thé is the perfect place for both tea lovers and for those wishing to start taking the first steps to discover this world. The tea menu is constantly updated and includes over one hundred flavors, herbal teas and infusions, as well as sweets, craft beers and spirits. Don’t worry if you can’t decide, and do not hesitate to ask for advice. Stefania and Enzo will be happy to provide you with their expertise to guide you in making this difficult choice.

Don’t forget that inside the room there is also a corner shop where you can buy your favorite teas to take home!

We can't. That's why every week we share the best experiences milan has to offer.
