Small shop wedged in small storefront. Always seems to be busy and noisey. I only ever stop in for some loose leaf and a cup to go, as I couldn’t take the noise and still enjoy a cup of tea and conversation.
Their people know tea, at least the ones I’ve interacted with. Despite the ongoing busy busy, they’ve taken time to talk to me about their teas and help me find something I might like. I’d recommend their house Morning Blend. I was skeptical, they insisted; I caved, they were right. ‘nuf said.
They have a fairly good selection of teas, straight up and blends, crammed into a small space. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, ask. They have a bunch stuck up on high shelves that might not be readily visible.

Bio

I remember when I discovered that there was more to tea than hot or iced. I was given a loose tea sampler (M.T.W.) and a stainless steel tea ball as a Christmas gift many years ago, by whom I cannot remember. That was the start of what will be a life-long love of fine tea. I discovered Steepster from a blog entry on the Mark. T. Wendell website…and have, from Steepster, discovered even more fine teas and vendors. Bravo!
