We have started Zhao Zhou teashop and Lab 5 years ago. Wanted a place where travelers and locals can meet up, have tea and learn about tea culture, experience the different tea types. We travel each year the tea mountains to source single origin, artisan, whole leaf beauties. Spent altogether 6 years in Asia was a life-changing experience. Traveled mainly China but also Tibet, Nepal, India, have been caught up in Asian culture, especially tea. Love sheng puerh & good oolongs, soft greens.

I had a great tea tasting session at Zhao Zhou tea shop. I was given quite enough teas to try with great storytelling. Not being a tea expert, this was a great experience for me. The atmosphere was very nice with a beautiful view of a Chain Bridge.

This workshop was an unforgettable experience. The cafe was cosy and welcoming and our host was very nice and friendly. Even my wife, who has no interest in green tea enjoyed it very much. Not only did we get to try different teas but brew our own and the little desserts were a bonus. At the end we were left to ourselves to brew our own tea which was a lovely experience. We even bought a natural real mulberry leaf tea strainer!

I loved this experience! Our small group was introduced to several amazing teas in a beautiful private area of the tea house. The host did an amazing job explaining what made each tea unique and special and helped me discover new teas I hadn't tried before. I can't wait to go back and drink more tea!

The tea tasting at Zhao Zhou was really unique. There’s an introduction of each kind of tea being shared, we get to taste each of them and eventually make our own preferred tea. The very soothing space and setting were perfect for a tea house. Here you feel welcomed and relaxed. It’s a wonderful experience!

A wonderfully peaceful location, a very pretty shop with a nice atmosphere. Very welcoming staff and our host was so well informed and invested in us enjoying the experience and learning about tea. This is a great experience for anyone even vaguely interested in tea, and it is such a good value. The teas are lovely and they have a huge selection for you to try! They gave us a wonderful seat by the window afterwards to enjoy a pot of our chosen tea and snacks, which was so wonderful. We would recommend this to anyone - we will definitely be back!

Das Tea Tasting war interessant und lecker. Die Gastgeber kannten sich sehr gut aus und waren super freundlich. Mann kann auch besonderen Tee probieren. Die Location ist wirklich schön und entspannend, der Platz am Fenster ist toll! Das besondere ist aber denke ich die Begeisterung für Tee die hier vermittelt wird :) Wir haben am an Ende dann auch den Tee gekauft den wir probiert hatten.
