For now over a decade, Raming Tea House has been a favourite meeting place of Chiang Mai for both visitors and residents. In 2004, famous art lover and celadon designer Daeng Wangwiwat renovated an elegant Lanna Colonial Teak house which had been in her family for generations. She turned it into a beautiful teahouse and restaurant: Raming Tea House, named after her family tea brand; Raming Tea. As soon as it opened, it built a reputation as a place of sophistication and indulgence - an oasis of calm in the busy neighbourhood of Thapae.
At Raming Tea House, the menu highlights tea drinks served in beautiful celadon ware: black, green, organic, and Thai herbal, delicately picked from the mountains of Northern Thailand and served hot or cold. Healthy shakes are also a favourite. To accompany your drink, a selection of delicious cuisine and home made pastry has been created. From allday breakfast to organic salads, sandwiches, appetizers and Thai food, you are definitely in for some treats. Our top favourites go to the Cherry Cramble and the Tea House Set B: a combination of vegetarian spring rolls with home made tea sauce, mini cakes, cookies, fruit salad with signature Raming sauce and your choice of organic black tea or organic Americano coffee (190 THB for one person; 450 THB as combination for two “Western Set” with extra Pad Thai). Another speciality of the house is the Longan Savory Curry with Chicken: savoury chicken in red curry blended with coconut milk, longan fruit and Thai herbs, a secret recipe by Raming Tea House, served with jasmine rice (150 THB).
After this nice break, take time to visit this hundred year-old beautiful building, the front shop sales celadon ware and second floor is fill with crafts and souvenirs such as bags made of rottin and collage, organic soaps and creams, jewellery handmade by young local artists.
For a beautiful afternoon, enjoy indoor or outdoor settings at Raming Tea House and be suprisingly surprised at how serene the garden can be amidst the hustle of Thapae road. This restaurant is at walking distance to Warorot Market.
