Theming within the immensely historical atmosphere of the Gothic Quarter, Salterio is a hidden little tea-room-gem that’s shining its light in one of Barri Gotic’s quaint narrow cobblestoned streets. The fragrant aroma from the brewing of piping hot tea that lingers in the streets and finds its way to your nose is hard to be missed.
The most talked about hot spot where you can refuel your soul comfortably from a long hard-day’s tour and a definite ‘must-try’ for tea lovers and addicts; you cannot leave Barcelona without visiting this place.
A brand boasting its top-notch quality tea, Salterio is also popular for their tale of Moorish Aladdin-like Arabian mystery. Featuring a dim and cozily exotic carved-out-of-rock interior, this Arabian inspired tea room is embellished with flying carpets, magical daggers, colourful cloth lamps and turbans.
As the tea room is bijou, I would encourage going there in small parties so as to enjoy the total relaxing mystique vibe it entails soulfully.
With a widespread of their flavourful tea collections and a generous food menu with vegan options, be prepared to have your tastebuds get all wander-fully lost in an eye-appeasing fairytale fantasy land. For a simple snack, their homemade pastries are simply heavenly, enough to keep your spirit intact while immersing in the magical realm. For non-tea lovers, they too have a selection of innovative modern-day smoothies including Turkish coffee, as well as, alcoholic beverages for all your ultimate binge rejuvenating needs.
Everything here at Salterio are freshly prepared with love. All their teas are also freshly brewed upon ordering. So be patient. As they say, good things comes to those who wait. I would recommend you to pair your tea with one or two of their pastries. The savouriness of the pastries and sweetness of the tea really blends well together giving a warm-hearted mouthful sensational experience.
I could say Salterio is one of the most interesting places I’ve stumbled upon in Barcelona. Beside its unique interior designs and most saporous tea, the tea room is filled with a calming element that instantly soothes your spirits for a better day ahead.
