Board Games @ Bampot Bohemian Tea House

Note: There is normally a [board game] fee of $3 if you buy food and $5 if you don't. However, if you bring your own games you do not need to pay the fee [for Geekalicious members only]. Special thanks to the owners Mark and Andrea are being super awesome to us ^____^

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.

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.
