Tea Houses in Copenhagen

Traditionally a nation of coffee drinkers, the custom of afternoon tea has become increasingly popular in the Danish capital Copenhagen over the past decade. Copenhagen can now boast a number of tea rooms that celebrate the tea ceremony of various cultures as well as other cafes that have extended premises to include a small tea salon.

Copenhagen's oldest tea supplier A.C. Perch, a colonial store dating from 1835, opened its own tea room, Perch's Tea Room, in 2006. Here, a very English high tea is offered, complete-if one so wishes-with scones, clotted cream, lemon curd and finger sandwiches. Coffee is not an option.

Tante T, near the Central Train Station, is a small and friendly locale run by a woman from Jutland, where English-style tea afternoon is given a Danish twist. Not far away, the winter garden cafe of art museum Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek offers a selection of fresh teas.

Not all tea ceremonies are English, of course: The á la Menthe is a Moroccan tea salon with a touch of the North African bazaar about it, while Sing Tehus is a calm and soothing place to drink tea Japanese-style.

Other cafes have a small tea room annexed, like the laid-back cafe The Living Room in the heart of the Latin Quarter or French patisserie and charcuterie Taste on Store Kongensgade.
