Las Vegas Tea!?

I didn’t want to step on the other topic’s toes RE: The Expo since this is stand alone…

Since I can’t make Las Vegas until Mid Sept – I was wondering WHERE one could go for Tea “Year Round” in Vegas (when I do go!?) Any suggestions!!!!?

looks like there are, theoretically, a few tearooms in Vegas. But no reviews yet :-(

There’s a Four Seasons hotel with afternoon tea – I’ve read a few reviews of the afternoon tea at other locations and it sounds amazing (if you like British style)

you’ll want to check out a few of these places before you visit, some of them, (like tea planet, for instance) is a boba tea (bubble tea) place – which isn’t a bad thing – but maybe not exactly what you might be expecting.

I think there was or at least used to be a Teavana in the Fashion Mall…does anyone know about any others!?

It still lists it on their website as a store location (as well as at Las Vegas Town Square) so it must still be there! At least there’s one place to get a tea fix :)

Bumping this thread because I found a new and amazing tea shop in Las Vegas! Located in Henderson near Bad Owl coffee is Tea & Whisk!

They have a great assortment and loose leaf, both straight and flavored. It’s still new so the owner is still picking and choosing his inventory. They have a tea tasting station set up in store with multiple gaiwans ready to steep samples per your request (FOR FREE). I stopped by twice during my last visit to vegas, and I think I may have tried at least 10 different teas. He just kept pouring and making recommendations for me left and right. The owner is SO nice!

I promise I am not self promoting or anything. It really is THAT great of a shop, and since I don’t live locally hoping others will stop by and support!

Supposedly according to yelp its at 3110 polaris, but google maps has it at civic center drive.

Mandarin Oriental does a really nice tea service. It’s English style afternoon tea. They used have a different service but you need more than 2 people to do it. I don’t know if they still offer it. They have Tealeaves loose leaf teas and generally prepare them very well.

Four Seasons also does a nice English style afternoon tea. The tea itself is passable but the food is good.

Milk Teaze is a boba/milk tea shop (apparently you can adjust the sweetness of your drink) with a bit of the risque Vegas thrown in via the servers. I haven’t been but tea friends in Vegas find it the atmosphere amusing and think they have pretty good boba.

Is the Harney & Sons a shop with service or open to the public? I know they have a big distribution center there but didn’t think they had an open to the public place. If they do, I need to go!

Ugh I want to go so bad. But sadly I’m on the east coast so I can’t really justify the flight :(

I will be there in a booth. Come see me!

Ken said

I will definitely be there. I cant wait to try out the Wu Wo tea ceremony!

A friend just mentioned visiting Lucky Dragon (one of them, I guess it is, per an earlier comment). He said the teas seemed solid to him, based on trying an Alishan and a Mi Lan Xiang Dan Cong, and they also sold Wuyi Yancha. As for price range, he said: They varied..$8-58 per pot. Most were in the $15-20 range… I enquired about how much they would sell an Ali Shan per gram..I got a quote of $1.25. All that sounds reasonable, perhaps on the high side, and maybe not the best place to stock up on loose tea (versus mail-order) unless your tea budget is a bit loose.

Half price next tuesday, I wont make it, since Im heading to the tea festival, and I dont see that place being kind to my credit card…
