Verdant Tea exceeded my expectations! The environment is really cool and relaxing, and there is a fancy looking tea table that looks like it is used for the traditional Gong Fu tea ceremony.

They have a good selection of high quality tea for sale, but what I find most appealing is that when you purchase the “bottomless gaiwan” to drink in the store, you get a tea tray, along with a hot water pitcher, so that you can stay at your seat and continuously make steep after steep of tea in your gaiwan! It’s great for chilling out and reading a book. They also offer a bottomless cup option, where you use a basket filter along with a cup, for those who don’t want to use a gaiwan.

They have a lot of interesting snacks, and it looked like they even had a couple entrées. They also have home-brewed kombucha, which I haven’t tried yet, but it seems cool!

This is definitely going to become one of my hangout places.
