      Very nice and the staff are friendly whenever we go. They have a great tea selection and many tea related gifts (such as an adorable fairy tea set for children that I got for my niece!) They don't serve food/tea on the premises, which is very disappointing, but it's a great tea store. The extra earl grey tea is divine.

      Great little find in post alley - best for it's tea pot selections and reasonable pricing! Not much food options to choose from...but darling spot for spring or summertime on the patio front to sip tea in the morning!

      I was visiting Seattle and was delighted to find this charming tea retail store. They had a nice selection of loose-leaf teas which we were allowed to smell. They did have one kind of tea for us to sample - I would have liked a few more. They had a display of tea pots for sale ranging in styles from Victorian to Asian, along with many books and other tea accessories. The store was very quite and clean, but the workers weren't very helpful. They pretty much stayed behind the counter and didn't say a word to us, help us, or even smile. I was also dissapointed to not find any scone mixes or other 'high tea' goodies.

      This shop has a lot of tea but as others point out it is stored in glass jars. The staff just let people open jars willy nilly with little guidance or direction. The main focus of the store seems to be teaware and teabags of which they have a nice selection. There are some tables for taking tea there as well.

      If you want good tea served to you, you'll be disappointed. They have a decent (not excellent) tea selection (in glass jars,yuck) available. However, only limited bagged teas were avilable for service. They informed me they had no way from me to try, sample or purchase a pot of a premium Darjeeling.

      I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Perennial Tea Room and I've been baking lavender shortcake ever since ... not that it compares to yours. Excellent tea and I loved every moment that I was there. Thanks for the hospitality.

      They kept their tea in glass jars -- not very good for storage. They advised me very poorly on preparing the tea, even with the little card they hand out.

      I had the pleasure of stumbling across this tea shop while shopping in Seattle for the day. I found the sales people cheerful, friendly and very knowledgeable about their products. I must have asked a million questions and never heard 'I don't know'. There were different teas offered for tasting and I bought a few to take home. Even though I have been buying my tea online from different sources for years now, I have started purchasing my tea exclusively from The Perennial Tea Room. It is so easy to just call on the phone and order my teas (they do have online ordering also) and they ship them right to my house in just a few days. While true that they do not serve tea with lunch, it is my opinion that they do belong on teamap for those of us who are looking to buy quality teas that are not always available at the other tearooms out there.

      This is my favorite place to buy tea in Seattle. The staff is unfailingly helpful, courteous and informative

      I spoke with them on the phone. They do not serve Afternoon Tea. Their focus is a TeaShop selling accessories and a Gift Emporium. They should not be included on this site since they do not actually provide a service of serving tea to customers.
