We could say that the world is divided into those who appreciate a cup of tea when it is of good quality and those who don’t appreciate it. Although it may seem a bit elitist, only if we have refined palate and we have used to make good tea, we can differentiate poor quality from good quality. For those who belong to the first group, ShBarcelona want to commit to providing the information they need to find the best tea in Barcelona in various shops in the city. In addition, people working in these stores are usually tea fans that will share their recommendations and advice with you if you require.
