Do a Traditional Taiwanese Tea Tasting at O’ways Teacafe

This tranquil tearoom in Claremont serves tasty food and 80 varieties of fine-leaf tea.

Situated in a busy lane in the heart of Claremont’s CBD, this quaint restaurant is a haven of calm where Asian-inspired vegetarian fare, the finest leaf tea and artisanal coffee are the order of the day. Taiwanese owner Lisa Tsai explains the O’ways philosophy: “I wanted to create a peaceful, homely space where city-weary souls can relax and recharge.”

Central to the O’ways experience is tea, a complex beverage with different flavours, properties and health benefits, and the clued-up waitrons will advise you on which brew will best complement your meal. Whether you’re after an energising green tea or a calming herbal infusion, you’ll find what you’re looking for on O’ways’ extensive tea list.

Even better, partake in one of the following O’ways Tea Appreciation Tastings which take place during trading hours.

Taiwanese Traditional Tea Ceremony

During this tasting, guests will enjoy some refreshing Ali High Mountain Oolong tea, served in a terracotta tea pot. A tea connoisseur will be on hand to guide you through the various infusions and taste sensations.

Five Speciality Teas

First off, you (and three friends) choose five teas from the 80 available at O’ways. And then you get to savour each one, while trying to discern its flavours, aromas, colour and aftertaste.
