Ching Ching Cha, a Chinese Tea House Restaurant Review

: Seeking serenity in a jaded world? The Chinese offer the teahouse, where uplifting and satisfying hot tea, served with a carefully wrought snack lunch or dinner, soothes and comforts. In Washington, that means Ching Ching Cha, a hassle-free setting where patrons can choose to sit Asian-style on the floor or at a Western-style table. The teas here are outstanding, freshly brewed (try the jasmine tea, which tastes like an infusion of flowery perfume) and served with flourish. Treats include savory cabbage, chicken curry, and coconut taro. Nibble, sip hot tea, and contemplate the joys of life.
