I recently moved away from California, and one of the only things I will miss is Chado. My wife and I were regulars, and we loved the relaxing atmosphere, knowledgeable staff (Tek is to tea what a sommelier is to wine), and delicious sandwiches. The Punjab is our favorite (Souchang tea-soaked egg salad). This is not a silly, frilly tea house, but a sophisticated establishment that is as welcoming to men as it is to women. My wife and I now order tea from them online because we miss it so much. I recommend Margaret's Hope (the best Darjeeling I have ever had).
