Reviews for World Tea House

I love World Tea House so much. The teas are so delicious (my favourite, Caramelized Pear, tastes like dessert), staff are so kind and helpful, and the drinks they make in house (tea lattes, tea with cider, etc.) are delicious! I really like that the tea is made with all natural, organic ingredients, and that they are fair trade and all the owner’s own recipes. I love how knowledgeable the staff and owner are; it’s clear from photos of his trips to tea farms and tea conferences...read full review

First tea shop I visited when I moved to Halifax. Staff were more than amazing assisting my with picking a tea that accommodated my grocery list of food allergies & sensitivities. Extremely knowledgeable staff and a beautiful shop.

Great tea, super helpful and friendly staff - they always have good suggestions. Many of there teas can get more than one steep. Great place to work - lots of outlets and quiet. Lots of natural light. You get your tea pot and either a large mug or a smaller cup - go for the smaller cup otherwise my tea gets cold too quickly ;)

Presenting a tea that owes as much to politics & diplomacy as it does tea husbandry. The existence of russian caravan, a smoky blend of black teas, (traditionally comprised only of chinese teas) is the direct result of a 1689 treaty between qing dynasty china & russia. The treaty brought an end to decades of border conflict between russian cossacks & the manchu people of northern china.

The treaty forever changed the way business was done between the two countries & produced a famous tea blend in the process.
