“Scots LOVE a good cu of tea, and a few places offer more variety than Tchai-Ovna. This charming, slightly peculiar little tea shop is housed in a former 19th century stables, tucked into a cobbled lane in the city’s west end. In addition to dozens of tasty leaf tea, they serve delicious vegan and vegetarian food and also host live music three to four times a week... ”
