Board Games @ Bampot Bohemian Tea House

For everyone who requested smaller weekly board game gatherings this event is for you! This will be our first reoccurring event @ Bampot Bohemian Tea House! Toronto's first bohemian tea house, board game room and hookah lounge. The tea & food is so delicious <3

Special thanks to the owners Mark & Andrea Newell for letting us use the venue :]

WHAT IS A BOHEMIAN TEA HOUSE?

The Czech tea house tradition was started by a group of committed tea enthusiasts who continued to illegally import, brew, and sample tea during the communist era. After the Velvet Revolution these daring souls opened up shop in Prague, and their passion for tea and its surrounding culture sparked what is now a major industry in the Czech Republic. Today the country, which is less than 1/10th the size of the province of Ontario, is home to more than 300 tea houses. After two visits to Prague to tour these tea rooms, their immense popularity is no mystery to us. The majority of customers seem to find there is something beyond the benefits of mere tea drinking that come with visiting a tea house. Some have described it as a sense of ‘sanctuary’, while others say they love getting away from the usual noisy, bustling atmosphere you find in a crowded bar or a modern, laptop-filled coffee shop. All of the staples for creating this type of ‘magic’ space are in evidence at Bampot: there is warm lighting, comfortable seating, a plethora of unique teas, affordable yet delectable food, games to play, tobacco-free hookahs to smoke, and above all an unhurried mode of operations that lets you order, lounge and leave at your own pace.

OUR TEA

From the steamy depths of Assam, to the lofty peaks of Yunnan, Bampot stocks a dazzling array of the finest loose leaf teas in the world. We take the time to sift through the offerings of each year’s harvest so that we can offer you nothing but the best. Black teas are available from every region and in every flavour imaginable, and we also have an extensive and frequently-updated collection of green, oolong, and white teas. Our herbal and fruit infusions will come as a pleasant surprise to those trying to avoid caffeine – no bland, watery, faintly floral cups of hot water here. With more than 30 blending components to work with we’ve developed some truly memorable brews that will drive thoughts of black tea right out of your head. Most of our tea is served in teapots with a small drinking bowl, which allows you to drink at your own pace while the tea stays warm. Other options include mate gourds, Japanese shiboridashi teapots, and iced teas.

    Are there any chess players appearing needing an opponent to play? I guess the only other board game I know is scrabble. Dobry Den!

    Sorry, gotta bow out. There's a movie screening on Tuesday that I really want to see and it's one night only. I'll catch you guys next week.

    Weird question ... was the venue changed? I could have sworn I saw a board game thing at X Planet Games ... or do I drink more often than I should ...

    June 6

    • Andra

    Are these always going to be on Tuesdays? :( Middle of the week things are my jam, but specifically only Wed and Thurs. I love tea and board games and hookah and veggie food! If these are ever on Wed or Thurs I'll be a regular. Alternatively if it has to be Tuesday I'll try to get a shift switch!

    • Andra

      We chose Tuesday because they have groups of regulars coming in the rest of the days and we wanted to be able to get more space (it's pretty small, they told us ~15 people)

      June 5

    • Tab

      gotcha! Shift switch it must be!!

    This sounds cozy! I've always been more of a tea lover. Might not get there until 6:30ish though, depending on traffic. Is that cool?

    Trying to take it easy until the cast is off as I think I overdid it this past weekend. I will be there for the next one tho!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
