My first introduction to loose leaf tea was at this store. Since then my wallet is crying for mercy ;)
1st impression: Stopped by on a Saturday close to noon. Staff was very nice and quite helpful. Was a very happy new tea connoisseur. Purchased some Kanpe and some Lime Bang.
2nd impression: Came in the store shortly after opening, mid week. Staff seemed a bit busy, but eventually helped me with my purchases. Bought my Timolino, a new pot, and maybe some tea (can’t remember which though).
3rd impression: On Rememberence Day, around mid day. The staff was very polite, catering to my girls who wanted to be part of my tea purchasing decisions. I purchased the Winter and the Holiday collection samplers, as well as a tin of Mom’s Apple Pie. I then wanted to buy a drink for my girls to share and one for myself. My oldest decided on “Oh Christmas Treat” (which she had plain – no milk or sweetener) and the nice girl behind the counter convinced me to try a Chocolate Chili Latte (non-fat milk and some agave sweetener). My oldest and I loved the smell of her tea, and I could see myself enjoying it as a latte… and for my drink? I was in heaven!
So 2 out of 3 visits to this location, and I’ve gotta say that I found the staff were very pleasant, especially the girl helping us the last time ;)
