Chelo Tea House, Sunnyvale

Updated: Nov 30, 2023

Bay Area’s oldest Persian restaurant, Chelokababi in Sunnyvale, recently opened a tea room called Chelo Tea House. Open only during the weekends from 1pm - 4pm, the tea room serves the most flavorful teas and finger sandwiches and pastries. The setting is elegant, and perfect for an afternoon with your besties.

Stepping into Chelo Tea House, one is immediately enveloped by the warm and inviting ambiance.  The décor, with its traditional Persian motifs and soft lighting, creates a sense of serenity that sets the stage for a truly special tea experience. As you are shown to your table, you are welcomed by the most exquisite tableware, with napkins folded into the perfect roses.

We loved all what we had, but the service was a bit haphazard, as they messed up some of our items. I also felt that for the price ($49 pp at the time of this writing), they could have served more items. In comparison with other tea rooms, such as K Cafe, I rate this establishment 3.5 solarastars out of 5.

Here’s what we were served:

💯Saffron Tea - The most flavorful tea I have EVER had, with a hint of rose.

👌🏼Fall Basket tea - Almost as flavorful as the saffron tea, with hints of cardamom and orange.

👎Mint and rosemary tea - Pretty boring. It was basically mint flavored hot water.

🆗Kalbas - Lavosh rolls with cucumber and tomato aioli

💯Spinach filo patry with cucumber yogurt dip - it was so warm and tasty. Wish we could have had more!

👌🏼Rasberry scone with apricot and cherry jams - crumbly and soft and not too sweet. Just perfect.

👌🏼Persian cake - delicious and the personalized dark chocolate on top was a nice touch.

👌🏼Noon chai - sweet roll, accompanied with chocolate and miniature fruit.

 I hope this blog has inspired you to visit Chelo Tea House and discover the world of fine teas for yourself.

Happy sipping!
