This is not the best tea shop I have ever been in, but it is the best tea shop in Houston, as far as I am aware.
While it is a bit frustrating that their rather lengthy selection of teas is geared largely toward a more, shall I say, casual tea drinker, I understand why, from a business point of view, you need to do that.
But they don’t serve coffee, they don’t serve bubble tea, and they don’t serve chai lattes, which means they have a leg up on everyone else as far as I am concerned.
I do wish they’d introduce a third, even larger size tea pot for those really long sit and chat occasions, but maybe it doesn’t make any business sense to do that. I drink a lot more tea than most people, so I get it.
The atmosphere and decor here are marvelous. The prices are good. And if you are hungry, you can go next door to Field of Greens and Path of Tea will let you eat your food while you drink their tea. Sweet deal!
