“More for the experience than anything else”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

The wide variety of teas are impressive if you are into that but the cakes were only average. However the experience is worthwile, I enjoyed sitting on the matresses upstairs and watching the people pass by through the glass walls.

“Unique in all the world!”
Reviewed 1 November 2013 via mobile

Relax stretched out on pillows and share tea with a friend. There is free Wi-Fi here, but you will forget about your iPad and find yourself gazing at the scenery, contemplating life.

“Wonderful little spot”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

Dropped in to this small, wonderful tea house (next to Tērbatas) to sit down to rest our tourist feet. And what a spot! The cutest little wooden house. Great tea selection, decent coffee and tasty sweets. Warm and cosy, smiling girl behind the counter, relaxing music. A perfect refuge.

Wonderful place to hang out and relax, quiet music and a great selection of drinks. Could have stayed there all day and a real highlight of our trip.

“A Must Visit In Riga”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

Have been there several times and can honestly say that it is always very relaxing. The one in Tērbatas (the park opposite the Radisson Blu) is great with children as there is a lot to keep them occupied in the park. When the weather is good the outside seating reminds me of my many travels throughout the Indian sub-continent, particularly a specific house boat in Kashmir I stayed in many times.

Great selection of teas and an adequate choice of cakes. Very good music tOO,
