I will be heading to the Florida Keys for work in Jan ’10 poor me, any suggestions for tea houses or shops in the general area…
Harrods, Twinings (flag store) and Fortnum & Mason in London, UK
Bois Cheri, Mauritius Island…they give a tour through the actual production and explain every step/machine. After they offer a tasting on there estate.
Several plantations in China with tea tasting on the spot
“Dallmayer” in Munich, Germany
Famous Cafe Kranzler in Berlin, which does its own blends
Has anyone been to Numi’s Tea Garden? http://www.worldpantry.com/numiteagarden/index.html
Hey there Canadian Tea lovers…tell me about your favourite tea places…to purchase or stop by for a steep or two? Luv to hear fm some Canucks…I know you are lurking out there!
My favorite tea house is in Ridgefield, WA, which is where I lived up until about 2 years ago. I became friendly with the owner, and I enjoyed walking down to the tea house with my little girl (it was just a couple of blocks away)… it was a lovely way to spend an afternoon. My young daughter is such a little lady and loves going for tea… I’d always get compliments about how well behaved she was.
But I digress… the name of that tea house is Myrtle’s Tea House. Here is a link to their website: http://www.myrtlesteahouse.com/index.html Fabulous food – and perhaps the best tomato basil soup I’ve ever tasted!
A few years ago, while in Tillamook (I think I mentioned that we visit Tillamook, OR about once a year so that I can visit the dairy there – they have awesome White Licorice ice cream), I visited a tea house called “La Tea Dah” – I have no idea if this place is still open, but it was quite lovely.
