Guaranteed Satisfaction for Tea and Rawfood Lovers
Posted on 03 / 05 / 2014
I have visited Rawcha a couple of times, and each time I was in the middle of going somewhere (either arriving to or leaving from town). The visit had made me wish I could stay a bit longer.
First of all, this cozy and calm teahouse is the youngest among the raw food serving places in Praha. Therefore, it should not be surprising that after its opening, expectations on the scene were high. As for me I've got to say that all of mine were surpassed.
Not only that the location is great (let's admit it though, a forest hut or a garden house would always suit it more), right in the center, the decoration is much more appropriate than in any raw food restaurant I've seen, and the sitting spots are varied so that they fit (almost) anyone's preference. That being said, here a little downside has to be mentioned - the space is really small at the moment, with only three tables. What I miss a bit is the sitting on flat floor like I know it from some traditional teahouses. But of course, that's no big deal.
Amongst the teas served there, some trademark and rare Chinese teas can be found. Also, I am pleased to announce here that their recommended method of cold brewed Gyokuro is flawless, much like the offered green tea itself.
The celery fresh (a favorite of mine) I've once had there was a truly refreshing experience. It had a creamy green appearance, intense and delicate flavor and smooth, pleasant texture. It is prepared from local organic celery plus some stalk celery.
Now to the desserts, a favourite topic of mine as I indulge in them rarely. First of all, the desserts at Rawcha, especially the Avocado+Matcha+Lime dessert and the Raspberry/Cherry dessert are the lightest I've ever tasted.
Often, the desserts at raw food restaurants are pretty heavy, full of cacao butter and coconut oil. This alone would suit me to be honest, but not in combination with all the supersweet syrups and fruits and nuts.
Rawcha desserts, though, are well-balanced and the taste experience optimal. They actually teached me to appreciate sourness of some fruits a bit more. Avocado and lime is a "killer" combination - especially with tones of matcha (never quite raw, but ssssshhh! we're in a teahouse) in the background. But you do not smell or taste any other flavor than those you would expect to be present in the citrus, the avocado and the pale nutty crust.
Then there is also a variety of raw mains and other desserts I haven't tried.
The pricing is higher, but that's expectable.
fantastic beverages, quality of interior, positive vibes
opening hours could be even longer?, i don't really want to write any
