This place was very cute! Jackson Square is by no means a high class mall but this store is very classy. They sell gorgeous tea pots and cups as well as other accessories. They also sell bubble tea and tea lattes, as well as any loose leaf tea for $2. They have a wide variety of flavours, I have only tried one so far, but have smelled many and they smell good. Most of their tea is flavoured blends, I didn’t see much in terms of pure tea leaves. I gave them an extra star for being the only tea place around me, and then took that star away because the service was crappy. The salesgirl didn’t even acknowledge me as I walked in and I pretty much had to shout to get her attention. I was the only customer, I guess she’s accustomed to slow days, but I hope business picks up because I want to try more of their teas!

I love teaopia’s teas but the salespeople aren’t always the most friendly or attentive. They also have an excellent selection of accessories. You can’t buy in a smaller quantity than 50grams which is kind of annoying, but they will make you a sample of any tea before you buy it.

I loved this place, not for the tea but for the amazing scones and cute boys that worked there. Unfortunately it closed in January and has been replaced by a frozen yogurt store :(

This is where my obsession truly took root. The staff are all so friendly and fun. I go in and say “this is what I like” and they make great suggestions that 9times/10 I absolutely love! I try to stop by almost weekly if only to taste the tea of the day.
