Cherie Anne (3 reviews)
Cherie Anne is a great place to pick up some tea and other small gifts. They always have a drink bar in the back.
Maybe I'm just spoiled because I work at Teavana .. But I don't like the tea at all. I am always on the lookout for less pricey but high quality family owned local places to buy loose leaf and I heard great things about this place but after trying 2 of their very popular teas (apple pie and blood orange blends) they both tasted very stale and artificial. I should have known better when I saw a huge variety of plastic non-vacuum sealed bags that looked like they were there for months if not years but I wanted to like it.. Sadly after trying them they are now condemned to the back of my tea cabinet. Not a serious attempt at preserving quality or freshness- think people are just excited about all of the flavor combinations (which I was drawn to too) but once u try it it is definitely disappointing :(
Cherie Anne's is more of a tea bar than a proper tea room (think like a coffee bar but with tea). They have a wide variety of tea. You can get a hot cup while perusing her knitted crafts or look to buy some loose leaf tea she has. She's always eager to help and talk.
