I really like Teavana. Yes, some of their teas are pricey, but the quality is actually good. I like that it’s reliable and loose-leaf. I’ve never dealt with pushy salespeople, but I usually know what I want. Great selection and I like that you can mix and blend and have fun with it.
I love Zen Tea! It’s a great place to chill and try a bunch of different teas. They have the biggest selection of teas that I’ve ever seen. The staff is always very friendly and they don’t bug you. Their soy matcha smoothies are fabulous! I also love that they carry Lapsang Souchong (they call it Smokey Joe). They also carry delicious chocolates and pastries and stuff. Their prices are really great for their teas. Best tea house in Atlanta!
