Chah-e Haj Mirza Teahouse
How does drinking a spot of tea in Isfahan’s oldest teahouse sound? Chah-e Haj Mirza isn’t your typical teahouse; it’s around 300 years old, dating back to the Safavid era (1501 – 1736).
Decorated with relics of the past, Chah-e Haj Mirza is a virtual time machine that takes people to the glory days of ancient Isfahan, when the city served as the capital of the Persian Empire. From armor helmets and swords to old paintings and dated books, this venue is a history buff’s dream café. Some people affectionately call the place a museum.
Of course, it’s not just the collection of artifacts that draws people. Chah-e Haj Mirza also offers classic Iranian tea, but what really hits the spot, according to the teahouse’s regulars, is the locally-prepared doogh (a yoghurt drink) and Gosh-e Fil, which is an Iranian-Afghan deep-fried pastry.
Chah-e Haj Mirza is located in the Blacksmiths’ Quarter of Isfahan Grand Bazaar, so it’s a great place to unwind after a long day of sightseeing and shopping.
