I was in Decorah, and just wanted to see what it looked like. It’s so cute and classy. I bought two loose teas to take home. I wish I ate there for lunch. I really love the blood orange tea I bought. It’s lush! I also bought a canister of the chocolate coconut. I will review each tea. If you are in the area, you’ll have to stop in to look! They have really cute tea sets and teapots!

I found this place on Yelp , and it was a great find when I traveled to the area. They carry many brands of tea! They sell Numi by the tea bag and others, which I love since I never have been able to try most of them. They carry Golden Moon, too. I did find a tea that expired a year ago! But they have such a vast selection of teas. A little pricey. They have bulk tea, too. I tried their Tropical Isle and Blue Eyes blends. They both weren’t that great, the Blue Eyes smells great, but didn’t taste good.

I had to update this review since I noticed something with the teas I bought. They all were OLD! This place didn’t seem to have turnaround. If you are in a pinch, this place will do. But if you want great, fresh tea, PASS THIS PLACE! I bought some Golden Moon Tea, and while they make great tea, keeping them on the shelf to loose flavor makes them look bad. My tea I bought from them doesn’t taste anything like what I bought for Golden Moon. I think it was old, and lost it luster.

Profile

Bio

I love cooking, sleeping, reading, reggae music, and tea. I also enjoying reading about tea, the culture and ceremonies, and the diverse types.

I think most the teas I drink are 80% iced, but on some days, it’s opposite that, especially days off! I can’t believe it took me this long to try different teas. Better now than never!

Reading the reviews help guide me to the right tea. I have been turned on to so many delightful brews.

I am ALWAYS up for swapping. Just PM me.
