Whether you’re visiting White Rabbit’s collection, meeting a friend or just in need of a break, the gallery’s tranquil street-level Tea House is a delightful place to relax, chat, or simply read the paper as you sip.
As well as snacks, we serve a wide range of the finest Chinese and Taiwanese teas. Take your pick from oolong, partly oxidised leaves that are twisted or rolled into tiny balls; white teas, named for the pale down on their leaves; flower teas like chrysanthemum, which blossom in the pot; and in summer, cooling lychee or green iced tea.
If you’re not sure which tea will suit your taste or mood, our cheerful attendants are happy to offer suggestions.
Most Chinese teas can be infused several times, and many taste best on the second or third steeping. We’ll keep topping up your pot at no extra charge until you’ve had your blissful fill.
You might also like to try a plate of handmade dumplings (available from 11 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.), or our scrumptious scones, served with jam and cream. And if tea is not your cup of tea, we have wine, beer and pressed juices.
