If you’re craving a cuppa, there’s no need to reach for that dusty Earl Grey teabag at the back of the cupboard. Instead, enjoy a decent cup of artisanal tea brewed by people who truly respect the art. Here’s our top tips for where you can find the best tea houses Perth has to offer.
Enjoy an elegant outing with the girls (or the guys) with a luxurious high tea at Peninsula Tea Gardens. The gorgeous setting by the Swan River offers the perfect backdrop to experience your traditional Parisian high tea. Savour the exquisite menu of tea sandwiches, French-style cakes and petit-fours, scones with jam and cream, and a finely curated selection of top-quality loose leaf teas. It’s a truly tea-riffic way to spend an afternoon!

Unsurprisingly, Little Matcha Girl specialises in the unique green tea known as matcha. There are hot and iced matcha lattes and a variety of cold brew matcha drinks, with skilled matcha masters at the helm to perfectly brew your bevvie. Tea features strongly in the menu as well, and for a healthy and invigorating brekkie, you can’t go past the house-made matcha granola. If that seems a bit much, they also offer a few other loose leaf Japanese teas. But no matter what you go for, you’re in for a truly brew-tiful experience.

The food at Little Bird Café not only looks amazing, it’s actually good for you too! There’s even a great selection of menu items for your vegan friends. But it’s the beautiful organic smoothies, juices, frappes, kombucha, and teas that we love. Their ‘Matcha Mantra’ frappe is a fantastic way to start the day, with matcha tea, almond milk, coconut oil, dates and ice – it’s full of vitamins and packs a real flavour punch. We also love their selection of Pukka organic teas, with a beautiful lemon, ginger and manuka honey tea, and the heart-warming rose, chamomile and lavender blend.

When it comes to toast, Toast mean business. There’s a wide range of breads to choose from, and then you’ve got the toppings – try the rocky road on challah for a real flavour sensation! All of that is going to make you super thirsty though so why not go for a pot of freshly brewed tea? After all, tea and toast is a classic combo for a reason – and the folks here have a great selection available. The menu features a long list of traditional and slightly left-of-centre black teas, a few interesting green teas, and some beautiful herbal teas including one for ‘clarity’ and another ‘fitness’.
“Busy on weekends for brunch but when the weather is nice it’s a great place to go. Food is consistent and variety is better than a lot of new brunch places around Perth. French toast and omelette changes weekly. Views are lovely and it’s nice area for a morning stroll.” – BREAKFASTforever
