Posts Tagged ‘Papaji’s

A successful (and boozy) launch party, a new head chef whose training included a short stint at El Bulli and a discount voucher proved to be three key factors in our decision to choose Papaji’s for dinner on Saturday night. After reading mixed reviews of the revamped tea house and restaurant, we were keen to judge the success of the relaunch for ourselves… Read the rest of this entry »

Friday, November 12th saw the relaunch of Papaji’s on Whiteladies Road. Rebranded as “Papaji’s Bar, Kitchen & Teasmiths”, the venue has not only a new look, but new drinks menus, a new chef and a completely different menu to that offered in its previous incarnation. Read the rest of this entry »

Papaji’s, Whiteladies Road’s house of teas, restaurant, lounge and bar, first opened its doors to the public in September 2009. Describing themselves as “the alternative to the generic coffee shop that Bristol has been crying out for”, they not only offer over 60 loose leaf teas for the public to try, but also a full breakfast to dinner menu plus cocktails.

Resident tea master Andy Dodd has trained extensively for his title, and has also spent time working on the Glenburn Tea Estate in Darjeeling. The venue continues to be linked with the estate, with a proportion of the profits from every Glenburn Tea sale going to the Glenburn Welfare Trust, which helps to fund the 3 primary schools, 1 secondary school, the hospital and medical centres on the 1,600 acre estate.

From 7pm to 9pm on Thursday March 25th, Papaji’s will be hosting a tea tasting session, with details posted on Facebook as follows:

Come and have Afternoon Tea at 7pm, yeah, we know, followed swiftly by a tea tasting session with Duncan our Master Tea Blender. Try a wide selection of our teas and ask him all the questions you want! After tea, Andy the resident Tea Master will make you our unique and scrummy tea infused cocktails.

As we only have a limited number of places, please let us know as soon as possible if you would like to come along. The event cost £5 to guarantee that all who say they’re going to come, will come, so that no-one avoids disappointment. There will be an opportunity for you all to purchase some larger bags of our tea and also some of our funky Kamjove ‘Kongfu art’ teapots.
