AN aroma of tea and a hint of mint from fresh mojitos fills the dimly lit tea house on Calle San Agustin. Bursting with chatter, bustle and life, La Teteria plays host to families, couples, business partners, friends, tourists and locals of all ages.

Opening in 1993, La Teteria has served as a refreshing and attractive alternative to the vast congregation of tapas bars that spill across the historic centre of Malaga city. With more of a sense of a candle lit Moroccan abode rather than the twee tea houses of Britain, La Teteria, to quote from their website, provides “a different space in which to enjoy the world of tea”.

In addition to the endless lists of tea from across the world, La Teteria’s menu boasts a delightful selection of cakes, crepes, milkshakes and cocktails in addition to a fantastic range of Syrian, Moroccan and Israeli sweets.

La Teteria is located at Calle San Agustin 9, in Malaga’s historic centre (close to the Picasso Museum and opposite the church of San Agustin) and is open from 15:00 Monday to Friday and 09:00 on weekends.
