What to Do in Ljubljana When You Have Only One Hour?

Tea house CHA in Ljubljana

As much as it is entertaining, traveling can also get tiring. So why not to stop for a cup of tea in a new city? Or to get a box of new tea as a souvenir? Ljubljana was on our way to another sight in Slovenia. But since it’s the capital, we’ve decided to stop there for a short lunch + tea break in a tea house named after CHA. Funny enough, before we’ve found the place, we’ve bumped into a specialized French tea shop which was just a few doors away.

Les Palais des Thes

Les Palais des Thes in Ljubljana As the name already reveals itself (“The Palace of Teas”) this French tea shop has everything to offer from a huge variety of teas from China, India, Japan, Sri Lanka or France to an exclusive tea ware like tea mugs, pots, store boxes and more. I was curious to learn more about Oolong tea which the staff explained me and before choosing one I also got to see and smell the tea stored in big metal cans. Now my tea collection includes semi-fermented Oolong Kuai from China!

Fresh pastry, delicious sandwiches, and of course a great tea menu. It’s a combination of a tea house and a tea shop where you can immediately buy the tea you enjoyed 10 minutes ago. Apart from tea one can purchase original tea accessories as well. I went for a cup of mate Kraus organic and my boyfriend had black tea Assam Sree Sibar. Tea served with a teapot (enough for 3-4 cup rounds) costs approx. 2 EUR.
