One of my favourite oasis of calm in the heart of Mt Eden, Chapter Book and Tea Shop is the ultimate for romantics. There are so many novels here to make your heart pop with L-O-V-E and local owner Frances is so knowledgeable about tea that you always learn something new during one of her tastings. Highly, highly, highly recommend!

I am an avid tea drinker and I absolutely love meeting my friends at chapter to smell the different types and sit, sipping a new flavor and absorbing the relaxed atmosphere, with my friends and their toddlers. I always manage to buy a new type (or many) before i go. The people are all familiar with teas and can guide you to the best one for you at that time. Going to a tea trading in a Sunday morning is the best way to relax and try something new.

Super fun chilled place tobgrab a cup of tea

Great tea discoveries.

Love the atmosphere, the service, the" exper-Teas" and the fact that it is a unique business that is local. Love all of it!!!

What's not to love? Books, tea, shop, it simply can't go wrong! Loose yourself in this little paradise with a good book and your favourite tea. Truly a match made in heaven.

What's not to love about a book shop where you can either relax and have time out or you can meet up with a friend for cake and walk out an hour later with a brand new book and a smile on your face!

Very friendly staff and always willing to find that right book for you!

Love the book selections, the divine teas and the fantastic staff... a place to take a breather by entering a wonder world.

Nobody can fail to love the combination of tea and books..and this place does this heavenly combination beautifully!
