Great little “mom and pop” type store in the center of downtown Fredericksburg. My wife and I had found it once a while back and just stepped in for a couple minutes, with intentions of going back…we’ll we did. The aroma that catches you when you walk in is amazing. Subtle notes of spices and tea! I headed right for the black and green teas. My mouth was watering, everything from my favorite Earl Grey’s to Pu’ erh varieties, someone near me had a Moroccan mint green tea open… I bought that too! The staff was extremely knowledgable and helpful. They offered reccomendations based from you personal tastes without trying to push their product. Overall, a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone visiting the Fredericksburg area.

Bio

Just a normal guy that gave up the normal daily coffee for a healthier, more flavorful, more intrinsically complex beverage. Being a US marine and deploying on the regular makes enjoying a decent cup of tea difficult at times but shows that even the “rough” guys can enjoy a great cup of tea.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Absolutely awesome! I don’t know why i’m spending time typing about them instead of drinking!
85-89: pretty damn delicious, and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the cream of the crop.
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy and would drink again when i can find it, but more than likely will not make a second appearance except for freebies and samples.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: The unfortunate bottom category. This tea is just disgusting to me.
