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.
