I go here for coffee, not tea, but I do check out their tea offerings. They have a large variety of store branded loose tea. They have a big wall of mostly bagged teas that’s fun to peruse. The bagged choices are heavy on the english blends. They also have the cuter than cute Eastern Shore Tea Company tea in the little white ribbon gift bags.

Service is friendly. When we buy 2 pounds of coffee, we’re each given a free cup of coffee to go, which is nice. There’s a big window you can look through and check out the coffee roasting equipment. There’s no table service, just counter/cash register. Although it can get crowded, I’ve not had a long wait. This is a coffee shop, not a tea house.

While you’re there, hop a few doors down to Geppi’s, open since 1884, and get some nuts, dried fruits, and old fashioned candies and look through their big glass window (noticing a theme?) at the nut roasters (but don’t go near it if you have a peanut allergy because they’re practically in the air). http://www.jeppi.com/cgi-bin/jeppi/

Bio

Here are the things I drink: Tea, water, coffee, beer, whiskey, wine.

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a little girl, but only recently began learning about tea and drinking loose leaf.

I prefer unflavored tea to flavored, tea leaves to tisanes, but I’m not inflexible and will try nearly anything.

I’m still learning, so thank you in advance for your patience and your help.

Also, I had to come up with a way to quantify my ratings because I was being really inconsistent:

100-90: Delicious, must keep in stock.

89-80: Excellent, a definite reorder.

79-70: Good, an occasional reorder.

69-50: Pleasant, but it was a one night stand.

49-30: Not good, but drinkable.

29-20: Bad, but I finished the cup.

19-10: Terrible. Couldn’t finish a cup.

10 and below: Undrinkable, requires mouthwash and counseling.
