Tchai-Ovna House of Tea is Scotland’s first speciality tea house, stocking and serving over 80 carefully chosen, high grade loose tea. Our teas are harvested ethically, most being Fairtrade, organic and direct sourced. Through the 20 years, 360 days a year and 12 hours a day, we have honed and perfected traditional chai recipes – all blended in-house (Yogi Chai, Desi Chai, Lemongrass Chai etc.) and invented our own recipes (Fairies Blood, Honey Spiced Tea and many more.).

We also (usually) have an eclectic menu of vegetarian and vegan food to match our tea when you visit us, and a busy schedule of events – from gigs to poetry readings. All this will be return once the Coronavirus situation has passed.

Tchai-Ovna is more than just a shop, veggie restaurant and venue – it is a way of life and part of the fabric of the local and world community. When you purchase a packet of our speciality tea, you are not just buying some tea, but you are experiencing a special and unique culture.
