Visit Roebling Tea Room

Welcome to Roebling Tea Room. This is the home of the Roebling teahouse and restaurant. If you’ve ever been to a tea room, you will probably be surprised if you check our version of it. It really is quite different. Usually when people go to a tea room, they’d be looking for paneled interiors, almost victorian furniture and a certain air of gentility and aloofness. After all, tea rooms at the term of the 19th century was supposed to embody everything that is sophisticated, elegant and oh so elite about the English upper class.

The Class & Nobility

You know you have arrived if somebody invited you to a tea room and there are some nobility there. It doesn’t really matter whether they are minor nobility or people just trying to look like it. there’s just a certain elevated level of class. Also, there are people of the arts that normally hang out at the tea room.

The Roebling tea room has some elements of that classical era, but it’s very up to date. What really sets this apart is that you can browse among the 5,000 different books available in the many different rooms of this grand library. That’s really what the architectural design of Roebling looks like. It’s just a giant, three storey library with a lot of wide windows and a lot of natural light. If you’ve ever been to any modern university library, that’s the kind of impression you’d get when you visit out tea room. But make no mistake about it, it’s still a tea room because even though we have 5,000 different books ranging from astronomy to philosophy to classic literature and all genres in between, you’d still get to enjoy amazing tea and coffee from all 4 corners of the world.

Authentic Beans & Ingredients

In particular, we bent over backwards to find coffee that’s relatively rare. Usually, coffee comes in 2 basic varieties: Robusta and Arabica. A lot of people are simply besides themselves in praising Arabica to the high heavens. They just can’t get enough of it. It’s very easy to see why there’s a lot of fanboy action around Arabica because by enlarge, it’s less available compared to Robusta. Robusta is the global standard, so regardless of whether you’re ordering coffee at a Starbucks in the Philippines or a walk in cafe in Seattle, Washington, or some pop up cafe in the middle of Paris, France, Robusta is the name of the game. All the different roasts and flavors out there mostly deal with Robusta. It’s easy to see why because this variety pretty much is the prefered coffee variety of growers for a wide variety of reasons. One of the most compelling reasons, of course, is that it’s easier to grow. However, if you’re looking for truly classic tastes or you want an old world dimension to your coffee, you can’t go wrong with Arabica.

We don't Settle for Good
WE ALWAYS SEEK THE BEST AND WHEN WE SAY THE BEST BEST, WE MEAN IT.

Still, Roebling goes the extra mile. We know that the world falls either on the Robusta or Arabica side. So what we did was we looked for purely local varieties of coffee and that’s why we feature Liberica, also known as Barako, coffee from the Philippines and Southeast Asia. We also have Ethiopian local coffee blends as well as some mutant varieties growing on the Columbian and Andean highlands. Make no mistake about it, when it comes to high quality and unusual coffee, Roebling does not mess around. This is one tea house that you will keep coming back to because you just got blown away by the variety and the power and subtlety of our coffee. 

Excited yet? Well it gets even better.

Keep in mind that we don’t set up this tea room with typical tea house decor. If you’ve been to a tea house or a coffee shop, you know that there’s a table and a chair and there’s a lounge area. This place is set up like a library and a living room so people can walk around and move from chair to chair as they enjoy a great book and enjoy some amazing tea or a cup of really out of this world coffee. On top of all of this is you get to pick up any book you want and read it on the premises. As long as you don’t take it off the premises, you’re good to go. So if you feel like reading a book about poetry today, knock yourself out. If you feel like reading an art coffee table book tomorrow, we have a lot of those. 

This is really a place for people to let their hair down and totally unwind.

Meditative Auditory Experience

Accordingly, our music selection is on the mellow side. We’re talking about chill music. Trance music has really mellowed out over the years, so we feature high quality electronica that is tuned to neurotransmitter patterns. According to scientific research, when the human brain is stimulated by the right sound wavelength, it releases more serotonin. It releases chemical secretions that cancel out stress hormones. In other words, you can achieve a relaxed mental state where you’re able to think clearly and experience a higher level of well being. I’m not talking about getting high, I’m talking about thinking clearly, understanding the range of emotions that you have and really getting in touch with your emotional, physical and spiritual core. It’s kind of like wakeful meditation but without you exerting any conscious effort. Sounds awesome, right? Well, that’s the kind of music that we play and the best part is you can’t tell. 

That’s right. In the beginning, you can tell that there’s music playing, but as you focus on what you’re drinking, your conversation with your friends or the book that you have in front of you, it all fades in the background and it works its magic on your neurotransmitter chemicals.

10 Facts You Didn’t know about Roebling Tea House that will Blow Your Mind

10 Facts You Didn’t know about Roebling Tea House that will Blow Your Mind. And it isn’t just any ordinary facts we are talking here. We are talking about mind-numbing facts you won’t know because the management won’t tell you.

  1. You are less likely to get a caffeine rush/crash from tea than from coffee or soda. Your body absorbs the caffeine in tea more slowly and releases it more slowly than in coffee or soda.
  2. To steep the perfect cup of tea, water temperature and timing are crucial. Different teas, i.e., white, green, oolong, black, tisane; should be steeped at different water temperatures and for different lengths of time to achieve that perfect cup.
  3. Just like wine, tea can be paired with food and used as a culinary ingredient. Pairing teas with food and using it as a culinary ingredient is a wonderful way to enjoy tea even more.
  4. Never store your tea with spices or other aromatic items. Tea will absorb the aromas that are around it. Always store your tea in an airtight container out of the light and at room temperature for the best freshness.
  5. Tea is very healthy. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not just green tea that is good for you. All teas contain, among other things, “flavonoids” and “polyphenols”—antioxidants that repair cells and in doing so, may help our bodies fend off cardiovascular diseases, cancers, osteoporosis, diabetes mellitus and other maladies.
  6. Iced tea was invented during one very hot summer at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904. A tea merchant named Richard Blechynden was trying in vain to get people to try his hot tea in the sweltering heat of a heat wave. In a final effort to tempt people into tasting his tea, Blechynden dumped a bucket of ice into his tea and iced tea was born and became popular in America.
  7. Where the word tea comes from. The word tea originates from the Chinese word ‘T’e’, which is the Amoy dialect word for the plant that tea comes from. In mandarin, the same plant is called ‘ch’a’, which is where the words chai and cha come from.
  8. Tea can boost your brain power. There is an ingredient in tea, called L-theanine’, that has remarkable effects on the mind. It relaxes the brain, which is why drinking tea can be good for reducing stress, and it also sharpens the mind and boosts the memory, but it doesn’t make you sleepy. That’s why drinking tea when you are working late would be much better for you than drinking coffee.
  9. A lot of effort goes into growing your tea. Tea does grow in the wild, but most of the tea that we drink is farmed. It takes around 2,000 individual tea leaves to make just a single pound of tea and each tea bush needs up to 3 years of growth before its leaves can be harvested.
  10. According to legend, tea was discovered by the Chinese emperor Shen Nung in 2737BC. Shen Nung was boiling water while sitting beneath a bush. A few leaves from the bush drifted in to his water, he drank it and it was tea.
