This place is awesome! I never knew the U.S. had strictly tea houses until I stumbled upon Goldfish. In many ways Goldfish is unique, one of the main reasons is because they import all of their products directly from China. They do not use distributors. This means their rep. in China chooses teas for the menu that she tries right on the plantation’s doorstep, which she then purchases and ships right to Goldfish. Sweet.

I was downtown in Royal Oak looking for a job at a bar or restaurant when I found this place. Being a Tea person, I was happy to see they carried my beloved Dragon’s Well on their menu and ordered a cup. I ended up chatting one on one to the owner Jim for over an hour about our love of tea. Today I work here, so please come in and say Hi!

Great place for anybody, whether you are looking for a refreshment, a pick me up, or a pleasant atmosphere to talk.

Profile

Bio

I love food and drink and move around the restaurant industry based on what aspect of it I want to learn about. The aesthetics of the senses interest me, and the process of tea, from preparation through drinking, is one of the most sensually decadent experiences I can think of. When I say I “love” tea, I assume (regarding brain chemistry) that enjoying tea is closely tied, if not an example, of romantic love.
