Specialising in Japanese tea and sweets, Chaology provides a unique experience in Manchester with a strict focus on quiet and relaxation.
They discourage large groups, selfies and even shoes in order to maintain a peaceful atmosphere with as little disturbance for their guests as possible. In fact, to enjoy the full teahouse experience in their airy, minimalist relaxation space, you must make a reservation.
Takeaway tea and a small selection of traditional Japanese sweets are also available if the thought of sitting in silence for more than thirty minutes makes your blood run cold.
The tea on offer is ceremonial grade Japanese Matcha either with or without milk. The Japanese take tea preparation very seriously, as does Chaology owner Mei who was born in Hong Kong but trained in Japan. If you want to learn about the art of tea making, they also run regular tasting workshops.
