If you love Tea and only tea, then this is the place for you! It has pretty decors but poor quality food. Limited options to eat You can visit during the sunset to enjoy the view from their pretty windows.

Lovely tea house with a mix of local specialties and international teas. The staff take pride in serving the local Kahwa, which is a tea made with saffron and served with nuts in it. Can't leave Srinagar without trying a cup. Food also very decent....More
