Owner Zooky Kim established his charming cafe in 2004. In this very clean spot with some plush seats for the weary, visitors can order from the dozens of teas and tisanes, along with light refreshments. Your order arrives with all manner of tea paraphernalia: china tea cups, little spoons with kitten art, an elaborate tea strainer and tea lights to keep your tea warm, along with the teapot itself.
I have been there 3 times now and will be back. Although on a busy area, the owner has manage to create a haven of peace. I find the place beautiful, the music calming and the tea excellent. This feels like a spa for tea lovers. My only recommendation is that they vary their menu a little, everytime I went, the desserts offered were the same (all great, but I would love to sample something new). Don't walk by, this is worth the try.
What a great little spot. Nice and quiet and the tea was excellent. Ambiance was a little stark with the white walls but that is my only negative comment. Try the Jazz Vanilla Roobos with an Apricot Scone.
Both times I've been to the Tea Muse Cafe was after work and I was in need of a quiet place with classical music to de-stress. The owner is attentive yet not annoying, allowing his customers to read and enjoy the ambience.
I would have given the food (and tea) a higher rating but both times I have been there, I stick with my favourite black tea, Buckingham Garden, and scones, so personal experience limits what I can say about the entire menu. I imagine, though, that it must be just as good.
