Twisted branch tea bazaar (2 reviews)
Excellent little 2nd floor shop. Selection of teas is abundant and everyone I've tried so far has been good, hot and cold teas alike. They also have a decent selection of foods to choose from (I think they're all vegan) in case you want more than a cuppa. Seating choices include the typical table/chair setup, but you can also sit cross-legged on tatami mats and pillows at low tables, or recline on one of their couches while you chat with a friend. Staff has been nice every time I've gone and are very good at giving tea recommendations in case you want to try something new or aren't sure what flavor profile you're looking for. This is a choice place for me and friends to meet up on the downtown mall. Sit in the window at the tatami tables if you want to people-watch, as those tables have a great view of the walking area below.
The first place I've gotten real tea in town. Loose leaf, properly brewed, great selection
