Party Earth Caj Chai Review

The Scene

Tucked away in a sequestered courtyard near La Seu Cathedral, Caj Chai is a romantic tea house that serves infusions from every corner of the globe, though it specializes in the Far East.

Tucked away in a sequestered courtyard near La Seu Cathedral, Caj Chai is a romantic tea house that serves infusions from every corner of the globe, though it specializes in the Far East.

Leaves picked during the humid autumn in the Himalayan mountains are no ordinary leaves, and Caj Chai’s menu advises customers of all the unique properties of each brew. Whether patrons are searching for something to refresh, stimulate, or calm them, there’s a tea with their name on it.

The uncluttered layout of the café, which is limited to a scattering of tables and sofas, contributes to the relaxing environment.

Walls feature Japanese calligraphy and unobtrusive works of modern art like fish mosaics and abstract portraits.

Caj Chai draws a steady yet mellow crowd of all ages who come to enjoy the soothing ambiance and chat over an excellent cup of tea.

Tip from Emma:

Reading about the different leaves and properties of all these exotic infusions is fascinating – but it may be a good idea to ask the expert staff for recommendations. The iced tea with homemade sorbet is perfect on a hot day!

A Hidden Gem of Zen
Nicholas M. Apr 11, 2013
Caj Chai can seem as hard to find as Shangri-La, but it rewards the patient traveller with great riches and tranquility. Low key with minimalist oriental decor, it boasts an embarassment of riches when it comes to specialised tea and other beverages. As tea goes it's kind of pricey, but such as the quality and variety that you'll find yourself going over and over again, trying out different blends of herbs and spices. The staff are knowledgeable and can help you negotiate the baffling array of options. There is also some sweet food served and a variety of cool drinks for Barcelona's many warm afternoons. If you're feeling solitary, go to relax and clear your mind or get stuck into a book. If you're feeling social, it's the perfect place for an intimate discussion with friends. There is a brew for every occasion!
No storm in this tea cup!
Ernst B. Nov 15, 2012
If your life seems to be nothing but a storm in a tea cup at the moment then this is the perfect place to go to for letting off a bit of steam (in quiet, of course...). Caj Chai is nestled in a snug little corner somewhere in the heart of Barri Gòtic with its narrow alley ways and great big mysterious walls. An extensive menu dazzles your senses way before you’ve even started this epic journey of tea-drinking. The staff members are serious about their work and go the extra mile to make you feel at home, meticulously crafting the perfect brew.
