I just went to the TeaHaus Afternoon tea held next door at Cake Nouveau. OMG! I was blown away by the food AND the tea! I will go back every month and bring friends!
Although I liked the lady working there, she didn't seem to know all that much about the tea. She kind of seemed like the tea types that only drink Earl Grey and read Jane Austin (nothing against either of the above mentioned, but...). I'd go again if I was in the area but not make the trip.
Thank you for taking the time to come to our store and I am disappointed that we did not get to speak in depth. If we had you would have learned that I've personally researched, taste tested and selected all 126 varieties of teas we carry; 11 blacks, 22 flavored blacks, 5 Earl Greys, 13 Decaf. Blacks, 13 rooibos, 20 herbals, 9 greens, 15 flavored greens, 7 white teas, 7 oolongs, 2 mates and 2 pu-ers. I've completed 14 tea seminars at the World Tea Expo with 4 more scheduled in May. I will also be taking the next level of tea certification through the Specialty Tea Institute. I believe that I have a good working knowledge of tea, but have so much more to learn about this incredible leaf. By the way, I do like Earl Grey but I love Oolongs, Japanese Green Teas and the occasional dessert teas that help me control my sweet tooth. Oolongs are my personal favorites. Moving into our new location will allow me to expand my selection, I've added in the last week 2 new Oolongs, 2 new green teas and 1 more decaf. black tea. My customers dictate the demand for what I carry and right now herbals and green teas are the most popular. I hope you'll give TranquiliTea a second chance. Look forward to seeing you soon.
