Having heard about the way this teahouse was run, we simply needed to visit! The staff who work here are speech/hearing impaired, so you communicate and order using word blocks. They also run an arts and crafts shop nearby that contributes to their cause. We...More

Visited after following on Facebook for a number of years. It’s great when people create a social enterprise that helps others. Wonderful tea house with wonderful people running it.

Our Tea House is in Old Town, where, as you know no cars are allowed and motorbikes restricted. The easiest way, we find is to get a taxi to An Hoi and walk over the bridge. sure hope your parents can visit us

The Reaching Out Teahouse, the second location for our social enterprise, was created to share authentic Hoi An (which means peaceful meeting) through the tradition of drinking tea and coffee with friends and visitors. Tranquility is assured in our ancient house furnished with antiques. Our servers are all speech and hearing impaired and the joy of silence is reflected throughout the experience. Customers enjoy the high quality of our teas and coffees as well as the gracious service. All of our tableware is handcrafted in the style of the imperial families of Hue and is available at our workshop and retail store a two-minute walk from the teahouse. Fairtrade operating principles ensure that our disabled artisans and servers receive fair wages and work under safe conditions. We invite you to experience our teahouse and to let us know about your experience. We learn to make improvements to our products and services through customer feedback.​.
