Peace Oriental Teahouse (Sukhumvit Soi 49)
The second branch of one of Bangkok's best teahouses.
At the second branch of one of Bangkok's best teahouses, Peace Oriental owner Teerachai Limpaitoon divides his tea selection into three collections: "purist," which is available to drink in and takeaway (B120 for hot; B140 for iced); "idealist," which is served in traditional tea sets (B240 with refillable water) and spans a list of 12 oolong from many regions; and "perfectionist," which ranges from the B350 set of yue guang bai white tea to the B880 set of 36-year baozhong laocha tea.
Matcha starts from B120, while he also serves the scrumptious koicha cream (milk ice cream in a well of thick matcha, B285) along with other tea desserts. Sit at the bar and talk with the tea master, or take up a seat on the floor at one of the peaceful, low tables.
