Cha Fahn Tea

The city’s recent tidal wave of boba teas, loose-leaf blends, and trendy teahouses has been difficult to wade through, but the calming sanctuary inside Jamaica Plain’s Cha Fahn feels like a stroll on a secluded beach. The teak-accented dining room displays local artists’ work under soft lighting, while the menu offers more than 40 teas, plus sandwiches, tea-infused entrées, dim sum, and sake.
