Experiencing the Western tea culture is becoming an increasingly popular leisure activity among younger Thais as trendy tea houses spring up all over town and tea paraphernalia such as china cups & saucers, tea caddies and strainers become collectibles.
Located at Chu Plaza behind the Thai Airways head office on Vipavadi Road, Lychee’s Tea Cups is home to an array of European tea sets. It was established by baking fanatic Jareeluck “Ja” Cherdcha, who owns over a hundred tea cups herself. For Ja, who often welcomes her clientele with homemade brownies, this is the realisation of a dream – her own little tea-related emporium. The store is crammed with a fine collection of beautiful and useful tea accessories and other vintage tableware items all picked by Ja herself, so customer are assured of quality and authenticity. Most of the products are imported from Europe, particularly tea-loving England but also from Germany and Sweden among others.
In addition, the cosy outlet offers a selection of practical and decorative objects for the home and kitchen such as cake stands, photo frames, vases, lamps and ceramics.
