For tea lovers and all over the world that revolves around the fragrant leaflets, Biblioteq is one of the historical addresses of the capital. Located in one of the most well-known streets in the center, where the historic antique dealers, clothing and design boutiques, art galleries and addresses of taste are located, it can be noticed for the showcase that shows colorful cups and teapots of all shapes and sizes that inevitably invite to enter, welcomed with extreme courtesy by the owner who for 16 years has offered dozens and dozens of selections of tea from all over the world, both in the classic types and in blends with different combinations that aim to satisfy the most inveterate admirers and to approach even the most skeptical or suspicious customers.
"You can't buy tea ... you choose !!!", This is one of the phrases written on the pretty bookmark, displayed on the counter, and in fact here you can linger by being caught by the names and scents that go from the most classic known to all to the most sought after, assisted by the careful and professional advice of the holder. The dozens of jars displayed on the shelves are the background for the numerous cups, teapots, mugs typical of the countries of origin of the different teas, available in various types of materials and available at prices suitable for all budgets.
There are also nice boxes of different sizes and shapes to preserve the precious leaves and to be able to present at best a special gift which can also be combined with filters and utensils to prepare the invigorating drink both in the winter version and in the fresh summer thirst quenching preparation.
But tea is not the only strong point of this delicious boutique where a selection of infusions, roobois and coffee complete the offer of drinks accompanied by sweets such as flavored sugars, toffee and candied fruit with always original tastes. The hazelnut flavored coffee and the chocolate and orange coffee are among the proposals that enchant even the most purist tea drinkers.
