The teenager at the counter was completely ignorant about tea, and manners. The tea selection is vast, but they are, for the most part, old and stale. This place has gone downhill in the last 10 years. The new owner seems insane.
Lovely, calm, authentic Taiwanese atmosphere with hints of other asian countries. The BEST variety of high-grade Taiwanese oolongs in the northwest and the BEST Japanese tea in the country. Try a sweet or just enjoy the fragrance of your tea.
Now, let's be fair. I don't hang out here a lot, but I always feel welcome and comfortable in this establishment. For a modern, urban tea bar they have done their best to please everyone, which may be their only downfall. The tables and tea wares are very chic, the tables made from fallen old growth, the wares glass on flame. They actually have too many teas to handle them properly, but I suppose that many modern tea drinkers demand quantity over quality. It is not for the lonely seamstress, the sinophile, or the teaist, but it is a VERY pleasant place to go for average to good pot of tea with friends.
