Coffee places are everywhere in the Klang Valley area. But if you prefer tea over the popular java, there are plenty of tea houses that you can find over here. And we’re talking about tea houses that serve quali-tea tea, covering the likes of black, white and green tea that are sourced from the finest tea manufacturers from around the world. So, whether you like it hot or cold, here are the 8 tea houses below in alphabetical order.

1) Beca Tea

Beca Tea’s minimalist interior screams Insta-worthy and the predominantly tea-coloured tone fits the look just right. But this tea house isn’t just all about aesthetics. They have been in the tea-trading business since the early 1930s in Chinatown and they sure know what makes a good tea. Among the highlights include the earthy cold-brewed musk orchid oolong tea of Amber No. 4 and the refreshing Elderflower Fairy Botanical Infusion. If you prefer something simple, you can’t go wrong with their aromatic Teh Tarik, served hot or iced.
