It's the little things in life that bring pleasure. Beautiful design, a cup full of warm Pai Mu Tan - that's white tea for non-tea drinkers, or a plate full of steaming xiao long bao fresh out the steamer.
These three things, my favourite little pleasures all come together at the Oriental Tea House.
Each of the tea houses has a shop, where you can purchase both bagged and loose leaf teas, and a restaurant where you can indulge in Chinese cuisine or relax with a cuppa.
If it's a little later in the afternoon, consider getting a tea-tail - an alcoholic tea-based cocktail - which range from neon blue to a light pink.
With branches in Chadstone and Melbourne Central, why not take the time to relax during your journey and enjoy the little things in life like a simple cup of tea.
