November 27th, 2016. I saw this new place a week before. Then, planned to visit the place. I know it’s not a coffee shop. It’s a tea house. Since, I didn’t find many tea house in Jakarta, I was excited to find a new one in PIK area. But I always loved tea. But my favourite was white tea, because for me it has a very light texture. Now, I present to you. Thinking Cup.
Located at the corner of Ruko Garden House, Thinking Cup caught my attention right away. We walked from the previous cafe to this one. I went to this place with Gaby and Vrila. We waited for Leo there. Brian also stopped by to have a chit chat with us. About the ambiance. It’s a little bit similar with cafes around PIK. But they have this corners with OOTD material. Well, let’s see my simple review below.
Flower Tea Silver Needle 68k
White tea for me is sweet, light and very soothing. It’s all I need in a tea, I guess. We ordered only one drink because I think, they prefer coffee. Thinking Cup served manual brew. But, come on, it’s a tea house, not coffee shop. Let’s try the specialty, right? And it’s a really good tea. Fragrant, mellow, and delicate. Recommended.
Baihao Yinzhen (simplified Chinese: 白毫银针; traditional Chinese: 白毫銀針; pinyin: báiháo yínzhēn; pronounced [pǎi̯.xǎu̯ ǐn.ʈʂə́n]), also known as White Hair Silver Needle, is a white tea produced in Fujian Province in China. Amongst white teas, this is the most expensive variety and the most W, as only top buds (leaf shoots) are used to produce the tea. Genuine Silver Needles are made from cultivars of the Da Bai (Large White) tea tree family.
One word: addicting! Just ordered this one and enjoy!
