Everyone knows that Moscow is an energetic and fast-moving modern city. That’s why it’s always a pleasure to find a calm spot amidst the chaos that comes with living in a cosmopolitan city. The Chainaya Visota (Tea Altitude) club café is exactly one of these places, where you can enjoy some R’n’R in a stress free, peaceful surrounding.

The owners of the café, Victor and his wife, are true tea enthusiasts: twice a year they fly to China and Taiwan to buy the most high-quality teas for their guests.

They also know quite a lot about tea making and are eager to share this information with like-minded people. For example, you can book a tasting session under the guidance of a master, where you’ll try the same type of tea, but gathered in different years; or the various teas from the same place – a great chance to go deeper into the tea culture.

But of course, their doors are also open to visitors who just want a nice cup of tea and not just the usual tea bag and hot water routine. For this reason the space is divided into two zones. The first one – the Tea bar, offers around 30 types of tea, and prices start from ≈$3 per 0.5l teapot. The second one – the Tea lounge, made especially for tea gourmets, with soft carpets and low tables, contains the club’s extensive collection: more than 250 kinds of tea with wide a range of tastes (100 types of pu’er, 100 types of oolong, white, yellow and red tea). The price range is equally wide, with some teas costing up to ≈$11 per teapot.

Another thing to try in Chainaya Visota is their home made ice cream: around 100 kinds are available to order all at the same time. The owners invent seriously sophisticated flavors, when it comes to cold treats: they mix cream and teas with pear, persimmon, rhubarb, blue cheese, bird cherry flowers, pine cones and many other surprising ingredients!
