Seven Cups is an amazing place! They offer a wide array of high quality Chinese teas imported directly from China. They have some well known teas (Dragon Well and Silver Needle) as well as rarer Rock Oolongs and Yellow Tea. Their selections of Green and Oolong teas are very extensive. Their menu carefully explains the history of each tea and the flavor which is great for novices and experts alike. Their food selections are limited to Japanese sweets and ice cream, but they are excellent quality and come from a bakery in Los Angeles. The tea is prepared in beautiful Chinese pots and served in the small and beautiful Chinese cups. They keep the hot water refills flowing and are very exact in their steeping times. Display teas are served in tall glass goblets which allow their flowering to be seen to full advantage. The tearoom is furnished with lovely wood and mother of pearl inlaid furniture and has soft lighting which combine for a nice relaxing mood as you take your time over your tea. They also offer free wireless service for those who wish to work and sip. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and wish to make everyone comfortable - even those very new to tea (or to high quality teas). They also have amazingly beautiful Chinese teaware for sale as well as their fine teas. It's one of my favorite places in the world.
