I have been here several times even though it's not close to where I live. The teas I like most (so far) are their Osmanthus Oolong and Darjeeling (premium) and would recommend the latter if you enjoy slightly fruity black tea. Essencha is small, but has a more modern style which appeals to me over those stuffy Victorian tea rooms. They usually offer 2 sample teas that are self-serve at the counter. The staff is knowledgeable and will gladly let you smell any of the loose teas kept in canisters on a large wall shelf. They carry black, green, and white teas plus herbals and chai. They also off a modest selection of desert type treats and several types of tea pots and accessories. Tea can be purchased and is put into small labeled canisters. (*Don't know if they still do this but, if you bring back your canister for a re-fill they will take a dollar off the price!) Parking can potentially be a pain. They share a small lot behind the building, but it's packed some days and oddly shaped so it can be tricky to navigate with a large vehicle. However, it is totally worth any small hassle! I definitely recommend this tea house!
