This is by far the best place to buy real tea I've found in the DC area. It's such a quaint shop and the store owner and staff (even the teenagers who work there) really know their stuff. I guess the only drawback is they don't really serve brewed tea. It's a shop only, not a tea house. But also little tibits of other interesting stuff, sometimes I buy good balsamic viniger and olive oils there. Plus a good selection of European chocolates, candies and other foodies. The owner also knows his chocolate!
