Long Description:
"Monte Verità (literally Hill of Truth) is a hill (350 meters high) in Ascona (Swiss canton of Ticino), which has served as the site of many different Utopian and cultural events and communities since the beginning of the twentieth century." (Wikipedia)

There is also a teahouse on Monte Verità, the name is Casa del Tè "Loreley". They offer a broad range of different teas. The house also contains a small tea museum, a shop and a laboratory. Just opposite the main door is the only tea plantation of continental Europe; it is only about 1000 plants, but not so long ago everyone was sure, that they would not grow here.

The teahouse is open Wednesday to Sunday 13:30 - 18:00 from April to October; Sat/Sun 13:30 - 17:00 from November to March.

On Tuesday evenings they offer traditional Japanese tea ceremonies, including a professional introduction.
