This is a great shop where the staff and owners really know their teas. They freely taste and share and explain the origins. The focus is on tea and they specialize in Taiwanese teas. Their oolongs are varied and the ones I tasted are fantastic. They carry limited quantities of the better teas so you never know what you'll find. Go in there when you are not in a rush and ppreapre to learn a lot
This shop has a lot of tea but as others point out it is stored in glass jars. The staff just let people open jars willy nilly with little guidance or direction. The main focus of the store seems to be teaware and teabags of which they have a nice selection. There are some tables for taking tea there as well.
Thanks for coming to our shop, William.<BR> I'm sorry you did not get paid the personal attention you wanted on that visit - actually we make it a point to greet every customer who comes in the door and remind them they can ask if they have questions or need help.<BR> <BR> We do as you mentioned have a great selection of good teabags and teawares.<BR> We also have a great selection of loose teas and tisanes. We order from about 17 different companies each of whom does something completely different - one for example specializes in small garden China greens.<BR> <BR> Thanks for mentioning the tables. We now brew up any tea in the house when it is not busy.
Nice little spot for a quick cup. The tea menu is large but lacking details. The staff are friendly and helpful.
