Great selection of loose leaf teas, teaware, and accessories. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Whether you are a tea newbie or an old pro just looking for something different, they can send you sipping in the right direction. I have yet gotten a brewed tea to go, but I have seen many customers walk out pleased with their purchase.
