I absolutely love the Tea Market & the owner. I find it hard to believe that anyone would describe the owner as rude. I've always found her to be pleasant, informative, and very friendly. I love everything about Tea Market! The classes are great--so informative & interesting. The quality of all the teas are superb. Yes, some items are more expensive, but the variety & uniqueness are just great. Always a tea lover, I had given up using loose tea for years. Stacie (the owner) renewed my love & enthusiasm for loose tea (or quality tea bags) and I will never look back at coffee again! I've embraced tea once again & feel healthier as a result. Thanks to Stacie for showing me the difference in drinking tea and the proper infuser to use!
