To all tea lovers – visiting Vejer de la Frontera (which itself is amazing place to go, but this nobody has to emphasize) obligatory plan a cup of tea in La Tetería del Califa, a small tearoom, which is part of The Califa Vejer group of hotels, restaurants & bars.
In La Tetería del Califa you will feel the wind of Al-Andalus, enjoy from the terrace the views of the white town of Vejer and taste amazing tea served in the authentic Arabic style.
In medieval times Al-Andalus was Muslim territory and cultural domain occupying at its peak most of modern Spain and Portugal. Almost eight centuries of Islamic rule has left a profound effect on the country’s culture and language, particularly in Andalusia. Nowadays, traveling around this region, you can discover many charming places referring to those times, such as Vejer or described teahouse.
Do you know what is the etymology of the popular Spanish greeting “hola”? According to some sources, it comes from the Arabic word “Allah” which means Peace be upon (with) God. This has evolved into Peace be with you, which can be a very polite way of saying “hello”.
No matter the language -Hola/hello/welcome to La Tetería del Califa. Sit, relax and enjoy your time! 🙂
P.S. It’s my boyfriend who took me there. Thank you honey for discovering this place for us!
