      Great quality tea! Sweet and helpful ladies, who all know tea very well and are happy to help explain the correct way to steep tea. LaDonna is a certified tea educator and the managers have taken classes as well. There is a great variety of tea. Love the Coconut Oolong and the Ginger Lime Rooibos!

      About 5 years ago, a friend bought me 1 ounce of Russian Caravan black tea from this store and I have been a customer ever since. That particular tea became one of my husband's favorites, but we have explored the world of tea with their knowledgeable staff ever since. Tea tastings, done by owner and certified tea specialist, LaDonna let us experience green, oolong and black teas as they should be --- brewed correctly and served properly. Always a black tea drinker, I have come to appreciate the subtities of green and white teas and the boldness of the many rooibos blends. With each visit, I learn something new from the friendly, kind and always helpful staff. Loyalty comes easily to this company. The motto is service and quality and I receive both each time I go.

      I suffered from serious heartburn and been unable to find any relief. I am not the type of person to go out and try mystery potions but my wife insisted I try a simple tea blend from the tea shop she goes to. She gave me the Ginger Lime Rooibos blend that I drank before bed. I will testify that it helped immediately and for the first time in weeks, I slept through the night. Since then, I have had several Rooibos blends from the Tea Madame and they have all been delicious. I have solved my heartburn issue and generally feel better too. I want to tell all about this wonderful shop and their outstanding products! The staff are the best and have a great explanation.

      The Tea Madame tea shop has been my go-to for all of my tea needs for many years. Their Gold Mountain Spiced is absolutely amazing. Ive tried many imposters, but nothing even comes close to the sample at the front door at this shop. And, they just opened a new shop in Lakewood, which is within walking distance from my house!

      Tea Madame Tea Shop is my absolute favorite premium loose leaf shop is all of Pierce County. I have been into and tried many teas from surrounding shops and was unsatisfied until I walked into Tea Madame! I have experienced outstanding service in both their Sumner and Lakewood shops! I will even drive as far as Lakewood to purchase a hot cup of their delicious tea! This will be my life long tea shop! :)

      I saw these awesome people art an art/crafts show in the Tacoma Dome so I had too drop into their store in Lakewood. Let me tell you it was amazing and soul refreshing. The Lakewood location used to be a dingy gold buying business but now it's a beautiful tea shop! From the decor to the amazing and aromatic tea this place is a fantastic getaway from everyday life. The staff's knowledge is beyond anything I have ever encountered on the subject of tea. If that wasn't enough their unique flavors are so good you can almost taste the craft and effort they took to match flavors in the creation of an unforgettable sensory experience.

      Someone told me about this place, but it was farther than I wanted to go for tea. I stumbled across this tea house in Lakewood, and it is the same shop I had heard about, but in my area. Great selection of black teas. Great info and even better service.

      My friend and I were told to come to the shop when we tried their iced teas at the Farmer's Market. We have had the teas at the market for years and put off going to the shop. We bought the ginger lime rooibos that we loved so much and they showed us how easy it is to make at home.

      The Tea Madame Tea Shop is my favorite premium loose leaf tea shop! I have been a customer for a little over six years, and have tried going to other tea shops in the area and they just don't compare! Just walking into the store makes you happy, the service is wonderful, quick, and they arent pushy. They would rather you get exactly what you want and need, then just sell you something. The quality of the tea is outstanding and you can really tell the owner LaDonna really cares and respects her tea! She is even a certified tea specialist! I have never been disappointed with this shop and highly recommend it to anyone and everyone and will be a lifelong customer myself!

      I went to one of her tea tastings. It was the best education on tea I have ever had. She is very knowledgable about teas and buys the best teas for her shop. I love the jasmine pearls and the strawberry rhubarb green tea. Very lovely shop and the best customer service.

      My favorite place in the whole world to buy loose-leaf teas. The staff is friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is fantastic. The prices can't be beat, either! Best selection of Rooibos teas I have seen anywhere, even in online shops. Always willing to work with the customer. Better in every way than any chain store! I love this shop!

      I've traveled to 23 different countries and visited teashops in many of them. While other shops seem content on never changing, the Tea Madame Tea Shop is constantly searching for better teas from around the globe. The owner is extraordinarily knowledgeable and ships teas anywhere for her traveling customers. :)

      The Owners are by far some of the most knowledgeable tea enthusiast in the area. I wish I could remember the lady that is co-owner's name as she is rapidly becoming the area's leading tea MASTER!..While the shop is jaded to carrying mostly Rubios teas, the tea they do carry is all top shelf. The staff that manages the store while the owners are doing their presentations at Farmers Markets and such are not just polite, but have taken ownership of learning the intricacies of tea and are able to give you solid advice and information. Not only that -- they are genuinely nice people to. While i have two importers I get most of my teas through wholesale, The Tea Madame is at the very top of my shortest list for when I want to learn, or just go for an interesting cup of tea. You owe it to yourself to stop by the Windmill Gardens Nursery and Greenhouse lot and see the Tea Madame, Have some delightful conversation and pickup some guaranteed high quality Puerh, Rubios, or Oolong teas...As well as several other blends that are just simple Scrumptious!!! Remember -- 茶是生命 = 'Tea Is Life' Cheers!

      Wow! The Tea Madame is a truly rare find. We met them at the Farmer's Market and found the shop. Easy to get to and right in the middle of a beautiful garden. We are all hooked and plan to go to the next tea tasting class. You could spend your whole afternoon walking through the garden or taking advantage of one of the other businesses.

      This tea shop is top notch. All loose leaf, and they know what they're talking about. Cute. I'll be back, and i'm bringing friends. Try the Wild Strawberry White Tea.

      The Tea Madame is extends excellence in their product, excellence in their knowledge of their product, always working to provide better service and product for their customers and feels like a place you just want to keep coming back to over and over again. There is no place around that matches their quality of service, friendliness, authenticity, and professionalism. I only buy my tea there. Try the Jack Fruit Black Tea, The Green Tea with Gogi Berries or the fabulous organic peppermint tea. You will not be disappointed.

      The Tea Madame Tea shop is simply an amazing and wonderful little tea shop. They have so many different teas to offer, and even a tasty sample at the front of the store. I was not a tea drinker until I visited this store. The staff is educated in tea and extremely friendly and helpful and even helped me find a tea that I would enjoy. They also have tea tasting classes which is a fun and exciting way to become educated on the history of tea, as well as try many different kinds of tea. I love this place, and highly recommend this shop to anyone!!! :)

      Tea Madam is a very rare find. The owner La Donna is very friendly and very knowledgable of tea. Her shop is bright and inviting as is her hospitality. There are a lot of varieties of tea and even some special blends by La Donna. I have worked for other tea shops and have visited many in the Seattle area and Tea Madam is my favorite. Happy tea drinking

      I love visiting the shop. Such a nice variety of teas they sell in a quantity that I wish to buy. I like sampling teas. I work at the Secret Garden just down the road also in Sumner, and as much as I love drinking the teas that I serve, I like trying out ones that we do not serve. Tea Madame has almost all teas we do not carry. I definately love the Lapsang Souchong and also the Moroccan Green Chai! Very Delicious!

      Tea Madame is a fantastic little shop within Windmill Gardens in Sumner. The staff are knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. The teas are sold in bulk and available for smelling, unlike many tea stores which only sell sealed bags of loose leaf tea. Prices are reasonable and there are good discounts available if you bring in a tin from the shop or if you attend one of their monthly tea classes. They also sell tea accessories, teapots, tea cups, soy candles, honey, jewelry and truffles. My favorite tea shop in the South Sound by far. :)

      We just had high tea at the Tea Madame. My girlfriend and I have been to many a high tea in the area and this was one of the BEST! The service was friendly and our tea cup was never empty. The food came as soon as we sat down since you pre pay when you make your reservations. Tea was served in the garden and the table was set beautifully. We got a chance to visit with the owner. She even opened the shop for us. I would go here again and again. Very well worth it!
