Piacha is truly the most chilled out, lovely place to enjoy a cup of freshly brewed tea. Being a freelancer, I love the relaxed atmosphere and always feel so welcome when I turn up with my laptop for the afternoon. The tea is fantastic, there is such a range to choose from and the cakes and sandwiches are to die for! The staff are so friendly and helpful and Pia (the owner) is often there to guide you on which blend to order - a lovely personal touch. All in all, I give Piacha a definite 10/10!

Really great tea bar owned by a lovely lady, managed by a very friendly team. The place offers an amazing range of teas, and more. And the staff know what they are talking about !! They take tea seriously :)
But the place is also nicely designed, cosy and you feel like at home.
Best place in london for me for a tea, and more 😊

My favourite haunt for tea, conversation, and relaxation. I was surprised by Piacha's wide assortment of teas and have never been disappointed by the surroundings. Enthusiastic +1!

My favorites London cafe! Excellent selection of teas, delicious cakes and very mellow jazz music...perfect!

Absolutely wonderful place, strongly recommended - and the owner is super nice!

Modern yet so cozy with a great take-away concept. I appreciated the professional advice on different tea blends. Piacha offers an excellent variation of high-quality tea flavors.

Charming and comfortable tea bar. You could spend the whole day here. Well curated tea collection is interesting and delicious.

The best cakes and sandwiches Served with great teas and fabulous tea boosters. Great place for catch ups or a quite read. Currently my favourite place for a cuppa. 🍵☕️

The best quality tea in London, brewed to perfection, and served with a perfectly curated playlist.


Piacha is a Nordic inspired lovely tea spot for the fans of the royal drink. It lies in the heart of Upper Street, has some outdoor seating to enjoy what the London summer offers and serves some of the finest brews. What else you can get here also is smoothies made with their teas and fresh fruits and mocktails made with their teas besides tea-related merchandise like pots and cups. One can easily spend the whole afternoon here drinking tea and eating their delicious looking desserts. 


Completely caught by surprise by this place, it is great! Wanted to stop for a cup of tea somewhere and landed upon an absolute gem. Really stylish coffee shop selling their own vast variety of teas, staff are lovely and the food is quality. Even ended up buying some of their tea postcards to send to people back home


This is a really chilled spot in Islington, a brilliant alternative to coffee shop chains. They have 26 varieties of tea - some familiar ones like mint, and some more creative ones like rooibos, chocolate and vanilla! But it doesn't stop there...who knew you could do so much with tea?! There are tea smoothies, tea milkshakes and most of the food has tea in it. There are also some delicious cakes (without tea in them). There's plenty of space and lots of plugs, so you can set up shop for the day and work from there. There's also a great space downstairs that you can use for meetings and events. All the tea is reasonably priced and if you really like it, you can buy some to take home - winner! (The photo is some tea smoothies)

Just popped in with a friend for a quick drink. The place is amazing and the owner gave us to try matcha ice-cream, which was amazing. Will definitely be going back to this place again soon.

My friend and I had a really enjoyable tea tasting experience at Piacha yesterday. It was bought as a Christmas gift. We went along not knowing what to expect but our doubts were soon washed away by the different (mostly lovely) teas!

Pia who took the session was knowledgeable and helpful; her passion and enthusiasm for tea palpable. The cakes served with the tea were delicious. We went away with useful tips for tasting and brewing tea and some happy purchases. I could not leave the shop without buying Pine Needle white tea and Mao Feng green tea both amazingly good.  If you like your teas then Piacha is the place to be. I'll be back!

Great selection of teas and very friendly service. I highly recommend the freshly made sandwiches, especially salmon rye. Also early grey peach breakfast smoothie was unbelievably good.
