It was a little hard to find (kinda tucked away behind other shops), so I didn’t get until nearly closing. The shop was nice.

After looking around at teas (and asking questions), I got a togo cup of the Amazon Fire blend. Very good rooibos blend, I even got it with soy milk. I also ending up getting a sample of a mate blend as well.

Lovely shop. I used to drink a lot of green tea, so I tried the jasmine pearl. it was delicious. I wish I had gotten a timer, it was easy to over steep.

Since I’d never had pu-erh tea, I tried one of the big bowls. I’m not sure which kind, but it was really good.



After many years of drinking coffee, I’ve recently become a tea convert.
