This is such a cute little coffee and tea shop close to the Skagit Bay and Puget Sound on Camano Island, Washington. There is a crab themed gift shop with lots of cute beach items and garden stuff.
I had two teas here, an Apricot Black tea and an English Breakfast with milk added. Such a fun little place to stop and have a cup of tea or coffee!!!!

Visited this great tea tasting and store in Pike Place Market when I vacationed in Seattle. They have tastings complete with bamboo tray and gong fu style brewing. Everyone gets a little cup and you get to experience some of their most popular teas. We tried a sheng that had been aged in bamboo, a five year old shu, jasmine green tea, and a ginseng oolong. I loved all of the teas and I bought some of the ginseng oolong to take home. It had a sweet flavor and the energy and focus that it gave you was crazy awesome!!
They have cool apothecary jars filled with teas, osmanthus, giant tea pearls, flowering teas, Chinese medicine herbals for health, and so much more. They also have a wonderful selection of yixing pots, cups, bamboo gong fu trays, tea pets, and tools.
It was so fun and will definitely go to this tea room every time I am in Seattle.

I had gone to the Urban Tea Loft actually before I was way in to tea. I was disappointed to find out that they had closed due to a family illness.
They had teas that they would prepare for you as hot teas or iced teas. We had sandwiches there too. It was a fun place that anyone could go to and have a good time.

We had already eaten and had some tea with our meal today so we just stopped by to check this place out for next time.
I am giving a good star rating for friendly and helpful service and next time plan to come back to eat and drink tea.
When we walked in, a friendly guy showed us the teas and herbs and was very helpful.
They have tons of herbs. It looks like they can mix all types of herbs together and create any herbal you want. It is very interesting and would be very cool to someone wanting Ayurvedic or Chinese medicine herbal/tisane. They also had Camellia Sinensis teas.
There are crystals and some fun items in there as well. I will definitely be back when I can get down that way again.

We also tried the Boba teas!!!! Had never had them before so this was pure fun. We got a Pomegranate flavor tea with lychee bobas then a Peach flavor tea with Mango bobas.
Very peaceful and great atmosphere in this tea room,,loved it.

Visited Tea Time this afternoon and checked out their large selection of loose tea. We had some tea there too. Tasted the Milk Oolong and their Bourbon Rooibos. Loved the teas, very good quality. There is also tea ware to purchase which was fun to look at. They also sell specialty herbs and roots which is cool.

I like Ayurveda, Yoga,
walking, stand-up comedy clubs.

Love chefs and foodies. Love veggies!!!!
I avoid artificial and processed foods such as diet sodas because I think those things affect your palate for tasting teas, foods, wine.
I always use filtered Culligan water for tea, no tap or bottled so I don’t find many teas I dislike bc I start with super delicious water.

Also enjoy bonsai, xeriscape gardening, my doggie, & all nature.

I like the Steepster Select Club because it is allowing me to taste teas that I might not get a chance to taste!
I have stopped rating teas with a numerical value here on Steepster because I realized on May 13, 2014 (a tea enlightenment lol) that once you start to learn what teas you like, get practiced and good at gong fu, and which companies are selling quality tea,,,they are all 100’s to me because I purchase and drink what I like and the best I can find.
I respect all the work that goes into the tea that I am drinking and I like thinking about the different terroirs they come from.

Namaste!
