You, Me And Tea (7 reviews)
We are a quaint retail shop, specializing in premium loose teas, fine boxed teas, British imports, teapots and tea accessories.
We are located in the harbor town of Port Jefferson, NY within a community of other specialty shops.
Come visit us for some conversation, a hot cup of tea and the panoramic views of Port Jeff Harbor.
They have a very good selection of loose teas. The hibiscus herbal tea is very good! They have a great selection of tea accessories as well (teddy bear-shaped steepers!). Their bubble tea is also really good, the pearls are delicious! Definitely get some when they have it (they don't always have it available, I think it is a summer thing). I definitely recommend them to anyone who is in the area!
This is the only store I frequent in Port Jeff anymore, which isn't good because how many tea pots can you buy?! They don't offer sit-down service, but they have a wide variety of tea 'paraphenalia' and an assortment of tea sets to suit anyone's needs (I found something 'manly' for my boyfriend and something more whimsical for me). The selection of loose teas is happily overwhelming, inspiring me to drink less tea and more coffee. I would recommend this place for sure (and I do). I would also recommend it as a place to buy a gift for someone when you have no idea what to get them (I know, because I've done it and they loved the gift). The staff & owners are VERY friendly and helpful and I always find myself wanting to linger there for an entire afternoon!
I have been to a few Tea shops around the island and this one is my absolute favorite. The staff treats you like you are a treasured guest in their home and the selection of loose teas and accessories is huge! Their teas are always fresh and delicious!!! If you are looking a wonderful place to buy tea, this is it! If you are a bag tea person, you have to try the loose tea experience, I am confident it will become one of the favorite parts of your day! Enjoy!!
Slightly disappointing experience. Perhaps my expectations were set too high from visiting their website beforehand but everything about my visit was medicore. If you're looking for somewhere to sit and stay awhile, this is not the place. You cannot order a pot of tea, simply cups to go. As far as food, I saw some boxed cookies and a few fresh items wrapped in plastic wrap on the counter. Did not seem to have the correct tea to water ratio as our tea was extremely weak. On the positive side, they have a decent selection of loose tea and tea-related merchandise. And I love that you're allowed to smell all the teas :) In a society where tearooms are hard to come across, I wish all the best to You, Me And Tea - I think a few slight improvements will take them a long way! In a nutshell, it seems like a good place to buy loose tea to brew at home.
Thank you for taking the time to review our shop. We're sorry that you were disappointed but we are not a sitdown/ food service Tea Room. We are strictly a retail shop( and listed as such)although we do provide customers with hot or iced tea to go, in the event that they would like to sample a tea before purchasing from our large selection of premium loose teas. I'm glad you were pleased with our selection of accessories as we do pride ourselves on having a good variety of tea related merchandise. I hope you return and give us another opportunity to serve you a cup of tea to your liking.
