There is a great diversity of teas and Montreal has several cozy places to discover them.
We propose a route allowing you to explore the best locations serving teas of different origins. You will find, for example, English, Taiwanese, Japanese, Chinese, Turkish and more.
We suggest that you take a break of your busy day to enjoy a wonderful tea in one of these Montreal tea salons.

SALON DE THÉ CARDINAL TEA ROOM
5326, boul. St-Laurent, Montréal, H2T 1S1
If you're in the mood for an atmosphere, décor, and menu reminiscent of the English Roaring Twenties, Cardinal is the place to be. Located on Saint-Laurent in the Mile-End, you can drink a nice variety of teas, salty food options, and sweet and vegan options. We especially like the tea for 2 with many of their specialties! In the evening, the place turns into a bar with creative cocktails.
1448, rue Sherbrooke O, Montréal, H3G 1K4
At Café Aunja, we are transported to an Iranian tea room in a warm and oriental atmosphere. The ginger tea and the Persian blend are among the favorites of the clientele, although many combinations are possible. They serve delicious lunches, sandwiches, and salads that will take you out of Montreal for a while.
750, rue de Bienville, Montréal, H2J 1T7
A tea house serving high-quality Japanese (and Taiwanese) teas with surprisingly delicate aromas. The owner Shiho-san has opted for a reservation formula: for a flat fee, you are entitled to a tea and a snack per person. Several workshops are available to familiarize yourself with the tea culture. A little-known jewel to discover!
4354, ave. Christophe Colomb, Montréal, H2J 3G5
This peaceful haven on the Plateau Mont-Royal will delight you with its "Afternoon Tea" platters served with regular, vegetarian, or vegan elements. Many would argue that they also serve the best scones in the city. The owner, Sylvie, will guide you on the best teas to have according to your tastes!
Leaves House has 2 locations in downtown Montreal and offers only herbal beverages. There are classic tea options, but the organic matcha leaves and ceremonial grade chai latte are definitely among the most popular. It is even possible to leave with a plant, as they sell them on site.
220, rue Rachel E, Montréal, H2W 1E3
If you like Japanese green tea, this is an unpretentious place to visit. They offer both high-quality teas from Japan and fruity creations with bananas for example. Tell us all your preferences and desires of the moment to get a personalized recommendation from one of the tea sommeliers on site. A nice stop to make on the Plateau.
