Description

Surrounded by Copenhagen's thickest concentration of über-trendy designer fashion stores, this tea shop stands as if untouched by nearly 170 years of history. The interior has been kept largely unchanged since the shop's opening in 1834, and, indeed, the quality, wide selection and intimate atmosphere do not call for a change. This is where the finest kinds of teas in all of Denmark can be bought. A C Perch imports rare teas from the very best plantations around the world, and here the making of tea is a supreme art form. You can basically buy every kind of tea, including, in the last few years, the more modern fruit teas. The tea is weighed as in the old days, with lead weights on proper scales. Apart from the magnificent selection of teas, you can also buy teapots in all sizes, as well as cakes and marmalades to suit your afternoon teatime. The service is remarkably friendly; do not hesitate to ask what tea would be most appropriate for any specific occasion, and allow yourself to be educated on how exactly to make it so that it is just right. Just remember: do NOT ask for coffee! The story goes that you will be kindly asked to leave if you do...
