Meet the owner

While visiting teahouses in Prague, Hugo Americi was inspired to open a small teahouse in Montreal’s Latin Quarter in 1998. He named it after the species of plant used to produce all tea, camellia sinensis. Hugo hired François Marchand and Jasmin Desharnais when they were UQAM students, but before long, these two became co-owners of the business. Shisha pipes, cozy lounging couches and late-night musical performances reigned back then. But gradually the new owners narrowed their focus to only tea, ditching the shisha pipes and swapping the bohemian look for something more sophisticated.

“We had the good fortune to open when tea wasn’t known here and to develop that market,” says François. In addition to the original teahouse, Camellia Sinensis now has three boutiques and a tea training centre. It offers an extensive selection of black, white, yellow, green, aged, scented and herbal teas. It also sells a variety of items related to tea including teapots, teacups and books — in fact, the store has put out two books of its own.

    Un havre de paix ...

    Un havre de paix et des thés succulents. une escale en-dehors du bruit et de l'agitation, le nez caressé de notes torréfiées.

    Enjoy a cup of tea at these Montreal tea houses

    The Camellia Sinensis Tea House offers over 200 types of tea to Montrealers. At their Quartier Latin location, there is a tearoom where you can enjoy the peace and serenity of a good cup of tea. There are no laptops or cell phones permitted in the tearoom — it’s a place for reflection and low-key discussion. Visitors can expect to hear a gong ring out a gentle warning when the volume is too loud.
