I love visiting Teance. The staff members who I have interacted with have always been very knowledgeable and they seem to have a true passion for tea. I love doing tastings at the tea bar. Much attention is paid to how the tea is brewed and served, which I appreciate. Their locally made mochi confections are delicious, and would be reason enough to make a trip.
This is a nice spot to have a good cup of tea. It is located at the Oxbow Public Market, so the environment is usually very busy and loud- not recommended if you’re looking for a quiet retreat. My only real complaint about this place is that their employees don’t seem to be well trained. I was told by the young man working there that the milk oolong got its flavor from being rinsed with milk. Besides this, they really do have some great stuff.
