Short and Stout Tea is a modern tea shop with over 100 teas that can be taken to be enjoyed at home or pots of tea can be made in-house. There are 3 cozy sitting areas including a room that seats 12 at tables. We offer free wifi and rent out space for private parties.

We utilize tea as a base for many of our CrafTEAs. These are hot or iced tea concoctions like Iced Tea Punch (Orange Pineapple Hibiscus Tisane with Moroccan Mint Green Tea and finished with sparkling water), Matcha Latte (think sweet and creamy) and Choco-mint Warmer (sweet and creamy chocolate black tea) to name a few. And we have a great selection of Bubble Teas.

Tea is also a base in our pastries. We offer sweet and savory pastries that include earl grey, chai and matcha cookies and shortbread. Savory dishes include a vegetarian spring roll with tulsi, chicken curry puff and other tea bites.

If you have any questions, please contact us at or, please don't use teamap's email.

      Best tea shop in the Capital District, and they have so many blends to choose from. Even during lockdown they found ways to deliver their teas to their customers and I recommend stopping by and using their outdoor window to order a cup of tea to go!

      Best boba (bubble) tea in the Capital District. Look no further than Short and Stout. I'm completely addicted to the Matcha Green boba tea. They also have numerous flavors of traditional teas as well - ready to order or in tea bags.

      They have a nice selection of sweet and savory pastries as well - I highly recommend the Brookie (Brownie Chocolate Chip Cookie).

      On top of that, the tea shop is nicely designed and has a cheerful atmosphere. Great for college students to come grab a cup of tea and study.

      Short and Stout Tea is a fantastic tea shop that is more than just a shop. With the standard wide selection of tea, tea accessories and tea wall, S&S goes above with all the tea infused pastries they make. Both sweet and savory pastries can be enjoyed in their shop in on of 3 relaxing rooms. The interior is bright and cheery and is a calm place opposed to all the other fast tea and coffee joints.
