Encore Chocolates and Teas LLC (2 reviews)
I absolutely love Encore Chocolates and Teas! The chocolate section practically feels like a bookstore with how many colorful and delicious boxes are on display, and the tea section is packed full of different varieties. Black, Green, Pu-erh; loose, pyramid bags, tea blocks; other teaware like pots; they got it! The staff for both sections are super friendly and knowledgeable. Encore has a wonderful atmosphere, responsible sourced products, and it's run by a husband-wife team (with each specializing in one side of the store) if memory serves me right. Because they also sell chocolate, it's easy to recommend Encore to folks who haven't gotten into tea quite yet--and the staff will let you walk between both sections while shopping. I try to bring all my friends here.
Wonderful store with excellent selection of teas (and chocolates). They are fans of Adagio too. Very knowledgable and helpful staff. They do not, however, lower the price per cup with increased quantity purchased. But for exploring a wide variety of expertly chosen teas they are the place to go in Olympia.
