Regarding the previous post, I've never experienced a $$ minimum, especially as high as $12. Most of the individual teas (NOT full/high teas with food included) run from $5 to $6 and easily yield 2-3 cups. One person can have one of these and that's it; one doesn't have to even purchase food. And the service has always been friendly. One note: not every food item is available all the time--everything is made that day.
