I visited this tea shop and found the proprietor to be an obnoxious know-it-all who did not listen. The teas selection was as large as one should find in a real tea shop but the prices were far too high.
Education is a real priority at TEA MARKET, we offer classes, tastings etc. I am very proud to be one of only 23 Specialty Tea Institute, Level 3 certified tea professionals in the world. I've spent alot of time and invested a great deal of money traveling and learning from tea industry experts and leaders, this is a level of expertise my regular customers not only appreciate, but rely on. If sharing information about the teas I offer in my shop came across to you as 'obnoxious', please accept my sincere apology, and I hope you'll give us another chance. I'm glad you enjoyed the selection and I can assure you that if you try any of the teas you'll find that although they cost more than grocery/health food store teas, each is a real value in terms of the quality and experience in tea it represents. Not to mention that the teas are properly stored, handled and packaged, that's a level of quality assurance my regular customers don't mind paying the little extra that level of care and attention requires. Thank you for your comments, I sincerely appreciate your honesty and will take them to heart.
