One of my favorite tea shops! So elegant, an oasis of peaceful and calm in a bustling neighborhood.
The decor is lovely. The wall of teas, the beautifully arranged teawares… The tea selection – huge. The staff, sweet and knowledgeable. They once opened the door for me because I got there right after they closed.

The tea itself – magnificent too. I like the Fudong Snow Dragon – there’s a very similar white that I’ve had and like even more. The charcoal roasted Tung Ting – fruity and a bit smoky and very unique. The honey orchid Phoenix is also very good…fruity – peachy – and dark…

Really lovely shop. The staff is perfect – they offer samples and ask if they can help but they aren’t too intrusive.
The shop carries more of the popular, flavored stuff. Nevertheless, a much larger selection than most tea shops.

I literally live down the street. Been in lots of times.
Nice atmosphere – very peaceful. Lovely decor.
Cons:
Ever-changing staff.
AND, hate to say this, but you can find a lot of their teas elsewhere for less.
