Great place to stop and collect your thoughts. It is run by a charity for hearing impaired people, they work in the tea house and ask that you speak quietly, which proved difficult you us in a big group. Good selection of teas and biscuits, so go, sit, reflect on those shoes you are thinking about having made and smile... More

Remember to be quiet as that's what is so special about this place! They have little stamps with common needs on them that you can raise if you need the attention of the staff. We sat in the back garden and shared a tea pot in the lovely environment. I really liked this spot and would definitely return with a... More

It is a nice and quiet place to rest after long walking in the old town of Hoi An. The restaurant only serves drinks and various type of cookies/tibits. The staffs are also very friendly. Worth a visit.

베트남식 차 또는 커피 아님 쥬스를 구매할 수 있다 직원분들이 다들 너무 단아하셨고 물건을 놓고 나왔는데 직접 가져다 주셔서 두번의 배려에 감동받았다. 한적하고 조용한 카페에서 앉아 호이안의 정취를 느껴보고 싶다면 매우 추천한다. No wonder why this is a no.1 cafe in hoi an Workers at here are very nice and the juice was also great. You can enjoy a scenaric... More

I have enjoyed the drink at this tea house. The decor is simple but well organize. Staff is friendly even they can not speak just get the order by writing on the order paper and show signal. This tea house is quiet and peaceful. I will be back.

Not only is this tea house located in a beautiful old building, the staff, service and coffee were amazing. Well done the Vietnamese for enabling some of their disabled to contribute in the community. Loved it !

A great way to get away from the afternoon heat is to get a pot of tea here and just while away the time. We spent quite a bit of time here, enjoying the quiet, the coffee, tea & biscuits. Servers were wonderful - and it's an ingenious idea to have commonly used words taped onto little blocks to make... More

Quiet escape from the crowds. The teas were average at best, but the space, tranquility, and do good feeling made it worth the visit. Try to get one of the two window seats available...perfect spot to people watch.

We are so disappointed to hear that you rated our locally grown, often organic teas to be "average at best". I hope that our staff helped you understand the steeping process and the difference in taste of the first and second "water" as we say. Happy though that you enjoyed our silent, gracious service.

Amazing experience in the middle of Hoi An. A charitable tea house which employs the deaf community makes for a very unique and peaceful experience which beautiful tea, coffee, and biscuits.

Description
The Reaching Out Teahouse, a second location for our social enterprise, was created because we wanted 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 hand crafted 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. In addition to ceramics, we feature embroidered tablecloths and unique accessories. Fair trade 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 and good reports encourage others to find their way to our shop to enjoy the silence.
