A FINE CULTURAL GEM IN DOWNTOWN CHIANG MAI
|Street view of the house|
The building architecture is fine in itself. There is also a gorgeous back-yard filled with trees and lush vegetation.
But what makes this place so special is that it is both a shop and a tea-room that turn it into a delightful spot to chill out.
The showroom displays an array of Siamese celadon items, which is worth the stop. Celadon is a form of glazed pottery with the color of jade. It was first invented in China but became popular in Korea and Japan. It was introduced to northern Thailand in the 12th century and has now been revived.
They also added a tea-room, which makes it a great place to sit down for a relaxing break. Tea originally comes from the south of China and has been a traditional drink in Thailand as well. They offer two kinds of locally grown tea: either black or jasmine green tea. But since northern Thailand is also growing coffee beans, it is also possible to taste their fine local brand there.
