The tea routes in Rome

The tea routes in Rome

Buying good tea is serious. It's a bit like buying good wine. We must rely on experienced people who have acquired the necessary knowledge on the subject. Today tea is found everywhere: from the supermarket, to the Sunday organic market, to the shops. But it must be said that a good selection of all the teas in the world can only be found in some specialized shops.

Only these also have the typical "equipment" necessary, depending on the type and origin of the tea: cups, mugs, teapots, filters, whisks, trays, and so on and so forth! In Rome there are specialized tea shops, we walk together the magical tea streets of Rome.

It starts from ...

We can say that in Rome there is an aromatic tea triangle . There are many tea routes in Rome, for example we walk together five streets of the city, taking a walk in the center, among the most specialized shops and places for tea. So let's start from Piazza di Spagna, where the Bablingtons tea shop is located, a shop that is also a restaurant with a historic tea room, with a quiet and reserved atmosphere, furnished in a typical late 19th century style, rich in decorations, prints and furniture of that period and with a large fireplace that is still lit on cold winter days.

Continue towards ...

The second stage of the Roman tea routes is sought by continuing in the direction of the Quirinale and reaching Via del Boschetto, where Il Giardino del Tè is located, one of the most characteristic tea shops in Rome. Upon entering, we are immediately immersed in a welcoming and gracious environment, where it will be fun to browse through the many shelves in search of a delicious tea or a unique accessory to give to a dear friend or friend and where you can also learn how to read the leaves of the you.

The third stage ...

From Via del Boschetto, in 20 minutes you reach the third stop which is one of the tea shops in Rome with the indigenous name, Namastey. We walked along via del Plebiscito, via Vittorio Emanuele, turning off to the right along via di Torre Argentina, we are in via della Palombella at 26, practically behind the Pantheon.

Here, directly from the Fujan, you can taste the Oolong teas of the rocks, leaves of the highest quality, to treat yourself to a little luxury, and then continue with the Kokeichas, the fruit of a particular process, whose leaves are first reduced to powder and then mixed with rice flour.

The last stages of tea shops in Rome

Last but not for goodness, beauty or refinement, our final stages are found in the characteristic area of ​​Campo dei Fiori. Here we find one of the most specialized tea shops in Rome, Tea and Teapots , in Via del Pellegrino. It is a point of reference for lovers of good tea, as there are more than a hundred high-quality varieties, including whites, greens, wulongs, blacks, puers, flavored and herbal teas. Here the choice of teapots and teacups is truly endless: from Yixing teapots and Japanese bowls to Thai trays and Indian tisaniere, without forgetting European French Jacquard fabrics.

Tea often goes hand in hand with chocolate. BiblioTèq knows something about it: it is in fact one of the few tea shops in Rome, specializing also in the sale of fine chocolate. This is becoming more and more serious: here there are about 150 types of tea, a vast selection of Rooibos tea and infusions and chocolate of every variety, which follow the crops and the seasons. We are in Via dei Banchi Vecchi in Rome, between Campo De 'Fiori and Piazza San Pietro, in a historic street for handicrafts and small characteristic shops.
