I only managed to visit once, a few weeks before they closed. It was a lovely clean, modern tea house, with knowledgeable, friendly waitstaff who refilled my teapot as many times as I wished and never made me feel rushed – I went in thinking I’d be served a single cup of tea and be out within 20 minutes, but I ended up staying for nearly three hours. Knowing it was such a wonderful place to sit quietly and enjoy tea unhurriedly made the unexpected news of their closing even more sad, but I am glad I was able to have the one excellent experience.

Profile

Bio

I grew up in New Jersey drinking Celestial Seasonings, and now I live in England, where I developed a taste for a good builder’s brew. Sometime in 2012 I bought my first loose teas, and my collection has since spiraled out of control. Still quite a novice, due to not drinking enough tea to keep pace with the amount I keep buying.

Some things I’m pretty sure I do like:
- most florals (jasmine, orange blossom, osmanthus, etc)
- buttery, vegetal greens
- malty blacks (usually with milk & sugar)
- oolongs that aren’t too heavily roasted

Not really feeling the flavored teas lately, for whatever reason.

All tasting notes use unfiltered hard tap water, unless otherwise specified.

No real method to my numerical ratings yet, but we’ll see what develops. So far I’ve only given ratings of 90 or higher if I actually get excited while drinking the tea.
