Yugen Tea Bar, in South Yarra’s Capitol Grand building, is unlike any other tea experience in Melbourne.

Step into a realm of discovery and beauty – where the senses are engaged, and rituals shared. Yugen Tea Bar takes an elevated approach to the common drink enjoyed by many and we invite you to come and share it with us.

Yugen Tea Bar offers some of the world’s finest loose leaf teas, and their stories, curated with inquisitiveness and respect. Teas are paired with impossibly beautiful patisserie which tantalisingly changes with the season. And it’s all presented with effortless, relaxed humility.

Located on the ground floor of Capitol Grand, a hive of culture and culinary delights in the heart of South Yarra, on the corner of Toorak Road and Chapel Street.

Yugen Tea Bar melds the talents of Melbourne-born Executive Pastry Chef John Demetrios, globe-trotting Tea Sommelier Thibaut Chuzeville and Culinary Director, Stephen Nairn.

Whether you’re a tea aficionado, or simply someone that loves a spot of tea and cake, Yugen Tea Bar has something for everyone.

Our Ceto Wall Lights and Ceto Pendants in frosted black glass and black anodised were featured in this project.
