    In June 2014 our unique teahouse sprang to life specialising in a cosy living-room atmosphere with a vast range of drinks to choose from. Based in the Czech Republic, it seemed only logical to bring a selection of tea and beer together, moulding together the two atmospheres of a healthy, centred teahouse and sociable, high-energy bar.

    Surrounded by books, musical instruments and board games, the teahouse provides a space for different social gatherings such as chess club, Czech and English lessons, reading groups and crafts. With the monthly cultural programme, we’ve also become known for serving up a wide variety of cultural events in both Czech and English; theatre, comedy, discussions known as “Tea Talks”, live music, poetry nights, art exhibitions, film and workshops. – all available for free on an optional donations basis. Our aim is to provide a relaxed space where our guests can share experiences and learning something from each other taking these connections with them.

    We are looking for help in many areas;
    • experienced builders and carpenters for developing certain spaces for example a mezzanine level and installation of sound insulation
    • a seamstress to make cushions and drapes
    • an electrician to set-up a PA & sound system, & lighting systems.
    • a plumber to fix up new sinks
    • artists to decorate the many walls or make an interactive exhibition
    • a peaceful person to help look after and play with our toddler while we pack, move boxes and unpack.

    Volunteers will not be asked to help with the food or drinks, we have a team of trained staff who make teas and serve drinks.

    We suggest in exchange for 5 hours of work a day we can provide accommodation in our apartment, breakfast and a meal a day either at the teahouse or at home, plus an endless supply of tea.

    We believe that by being an open minded and welcoming community, we can collectively make the world a nicer place.

    What else ...

    Prague is a beautiful city great to explore, with cheap good transport many parks and green spaces along the river. Czech is incredibly affordable compared to most European cities, and recommend drinking beer, boating on the many rivers (best dressed as a sailor or pirate drinking run like the locals), skiing, or just hopping on a train out of the city. We can lend camping equipment too.
