Rangoon Tea House was conceived in early 2014, inspired by all the characteristics that make the tea shop tradition the centre of everyday life in Burma; the taste, the noise, the smell and the atmosphere.
The tea shop as we’ve come to know it came over to Burma during a time of high migration (late 1920’s) from British India to Rangoon, when stalls known as “kaka hsaing” (tea shops) were beginning to appear everywhere.
At that particular time in Rangoon’s history, the city was biggest migration port in the world and also housed one of the largest populations of Armenians and Jewish migrants in South East Asia.
