The tea I have purchased here is very hit and miss. This has to do with the unfriendly attitude of the owner. He seems knowledgeable, but rather unwilling to share without being contemptuous, which has led to a quick exit on many occasions. Other staff seem nice enough, but do not make much of an attempt to engage with customers or promote any of their teas.
The tea itself ranges from nice to not worth mentioning and is a bit overpriced for the entire experience.
This cozy little father-son business is by far my favourite Tea Shopping experience. All staff are friendly and knowledgeable; they are ready to answer questions and offer opinions to help you pick out the perfect tea! They have a large selection of prepackaged loose leaf or you can choose your amount by the gram. There is a growing organic selection, and all tea is very high quality for reasonable prices.
I would recommend this Shop to anyone who loves tea, but not the stuffy, humourless atmosphere of many ‘high quality’ Tea Merchants.
