  • The pacific breeze tea taste like fruity pebbles when it's iced! Add a little honey too!
  • If you're a chai fan, Masala Chai is the way to go! The kid who works Saturday mornings needs to go though - total snob!
  • You must try the pia colada - with hints of coconut and pineapple the tea will make you feel like you are on a tropical island!
  • The counter staff have comprehensive knowledge of tea from around the world. Tell them your tastes and let them pick!
  • Enormous selection of teas! Many you can smell and then decide to try! Quiet comfortable place to enjoy a pot of tea! We tried the peach and the raspberry. Both very good teas!

  • one of my favorite places in the world, a beautiful, peaceful tea shop. ancient happiness will never betray you.
  • Tons of great teas. Get some to drink in the cozy store or for use at home.
  • The most frequently consumed tea in China's central provinces is Pu-erh. Produced in the Yunnan Province it is a fully fermented, complex "black" tea (made from unoxidized green moch) try it here!
  • I was on a no-coffee kick for about 6 months during college (haha!), and this was a great place to stop on my way through town. Just tell the staff what you like and they'll make you something great!
  • Get a cup of delicious tea (to go or stay in) from their extensive menu or pick up the perfect gift for the tea fan in your life!
  • This place is awesome, but don't go there to get work done online. They have no wifi. If you're looking for a wifi free zone, it's great. If not, get your tea to go, and head elsewhere.
  • In season the holiday spice tea is good to bring home.
  • The best tea downtown. Try Cloud Nine for a fruity scent.
