The Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar has been serving fine vegetarian fare and sharing the art of loose leaf teas since 2002. Located on Charlottesville’s historic downtown walking mall . It is convenient to the outdoor Pavilion, the Paramount theater and several other historic and notable locations.

The Tea Bazaar is inspired by travels to far off places. Inside you will find a comfortable artful ambiance, wonderful scents and friendly, knowledgeable staff.

The Tea Menu offers a seasonal selection of over 40 teas from around the world.All of our teas are steeped by the pot and can be purchased loose leaf by the ounce. Tea aficionados can often find additional and unlisted featured teas behind the bar(just ask!) .  A wide variety of tea ware is available for home brewing and gifts.

This comfortable Bohemian venue caters to a diverse clientele. While enjoying a pot of carefully crafted tea, you can enjoy a view of the Downtown Mall from the Japanese Tatami area, cozy up on one of our couches or find your niche on the private patio out back. Considered by most as Charlottesville’s only full service vegetarian restaurant; our Food Menu features handmade vegan and gluten free meals, a variety of homemade desserts, international and local wines and ales and host Charlottesville’s only Hookah Bar.

By day, the Tea Bazaar is a peaceful place to study or converse. When evening falls, the pace picks up and the Teahouse becomes one of Charlottesville’s most interesting performance venues.  Check our event schedule for details.
