Zhi Tea (4 reviews)
We are an importer, tea blender, and wholesaler with a tea room and retail shop in front of our warehouse in trendy East Austin.
Our tea room features light snacks, small lunch menu, chocolates, and gluten-free brunch options and 100+ teas in various sizes ranging from small pot to group sized pots and iced teas from cup to pitcher.
We have a retail store onsite, as well, which features all of our teas available in five sizes ranging from trial sized packs (teazers), our gorgeous decorative gift tins, to pound bags and up.
We also host events and are available to rent suring off hours for parties and gatherings.
Free wi-fi, cool, calm music, and friendly, knowledgeable staff.
Knowledgeable and friendly staff who was willing to let me sample any tea I wanted. Great quality stuff! My favorite is the Pink Grapefruit Sencha but the Assam Breakfast tea is excellent as well. I highly recommend!
I visited Zhi Tea 12-11-11 @ 3:16pm
Address: 4607 Bolm Rd., Austin, TX 78702
It was a very sharp turn to get to the right street, I passed it once and ended up having to circle back to it. There was limited parking, but the place was not very full. By the end of my visit there were 4 other patrons, 3 of which stayed with for here drinks.
One woman, the blender, was taking care of the front of the store. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with telling me about the teas and helping me select one to have.
The walls were covered with shelves of tea, and plenty of sampler sizes.
There were 4 tables, and 1 couch corner.
Average experience for a tea shop, but cozy and nice. I will gladly go back to visit next time I am in Austin.
Brand new place, not even finished. We stumbled into the Zhi shop the other day and they were in renovations. They stopeed everything, shared delicious oolong tea with us, and we bought a few samples (which turned out to be delicious), and left feeling very satisfied. can't wait to come back!
