Dear guest, Granada is one of the Spanish cities with the most Arab influence. That is why the streets give off an incomparable air that attracts millions of tourists every year. One of the greatest signs of the time that Muslims spent in Granada are undoubtedly the teahouses that fill the city.
It is said that the tea can be taken in both winter and summer. According to Arab culture, in winter it warms us up and in summer it regulates our interior temperature, preventing us from feeling extreme heat. Those who have tried it, affirm that it is true.
So, no matter what time of year it is, enjoying tea in one of the best teahouses in Granada is a great proposal. Below I detail the best teahouses in Granada from my personal point of view, there are many more.
Castillo de Aleppo Teahouse
Castillo de Aleppo Teahouse opened in 2019. It is probably the best teahouse in Granada. The decoration is magnificent with a small fountain with 6 lions in the middle, similar to the fountain in the most emblematic courtyard of the Alhambra.
It is a bright, cozy place, you breathe peace in tune with Arabic music and the sound of water.
It offers the authentic taste of typical Arab home cooking, an extensive menu of coffees, crêpes and natural juices. You can have tea and the dishes are abundant and tasty. Their prices are cheap, a little lower or similar to the rest of the tea shops in this area.
The treatment of the staff is really friendly and they help you to choose what tea to drink. In addition, there are plugs for mobile chargers.
Address: Calle Elvira, 60, 18010 Granada. Phone number: +34 622 317 003.
Bagdad Teahouse uses decorative elements based on Moroccan culture, the lighting is cozy and the music is oriental. It is a traditional teahouse, a small but very clean and charming place, the smell of hookah and a very quiet atmosphere.
In this teahouse you can enjoy typical Arab dishes, natural smoothies, exotic teas, mint lemonade, crepes, Arab cakes, homemade and savory sweets. The crêpes and almond and honey paste are very good.
They do not have a separate area for smoking shisha, if this smell bothers you, this is not the place for you.
The price is somewhat high but according to others in the area and of this type of site.
Address: Calle Elvira, 12, 18010 Granada. Phone number: +34 652 622 130.
La Oriental Teahouse
It is a charming place where you can have a good tea, a lemonade or a good coffee. It is also famous for its delicious crepes and natural juices, as well as for its Arabic pastries. Without a doubt, it is a place to spend a relaxed afternoon in the centre of Granada.

Abaco Té Teahouse
The Ábaco Té teahouse is undoubtedly the most eclectic on this list, since it is not a traditional tearoom like the previous ones, but a contemporary and modern space that mixes the most current decoration with some exotic touches. However, the tea menu is one of the best, with a high quality of preparation, and it complements very well with its meals, juices and coffees. Without a doubt, an ideal place for meetings with friends, although it is not the goal of those looking for something traditional.
Address: Calle Álamo del Marqués, 5
Andalusian Folklore Teahouse
The Andalusian Folklore Tea House will transport you immediately to the time when Granada was ruled by Arab kings, with a wonderful decoration whose effect is amplified under the candlelight. In addition to a large menu of Arab and exotic teas, you can enjoy typical Arab dishes as well as natural juices and traditional cakes.
