The building was actually an old church since 1904

Fresh Bread served with Warm Olive Oil

Kuan Yin Tea House (Fortitude Valley)


So we went to Kuan Yin Tea House
198 Wickham Street
Fortitude Valley


Famous for their teas and excellent service


And of course, the vegetarian dishes are epic


The shop is run by very very friendly Taiwanese aunties




I had a Pearl Milk Tea
$3.50
The pearls are legendary!
The tea is awesome.
These Taiwanese aunties really know their stuff.


There's a joke on every lid
Just like in Singapore


The ambience is peaceful and relaxing
hiding in its little corner from the busy streets
I found myself dazing into the streets feeling like I'm in another dimension


Oh and they're environmental friendly too
