I didn’t review this? Really? Because I was here ages ago…

Really between the two places I’ve been in the Atlanta area, I much preferred the Roswell tea house. This was a cute little shop, but it felt sort of cramped to me. You’re kind of sandwiched in between all the merchandise and the tea counter. I guess the ambiance just wasn’t my thing.

That said, the servers were polite, the food was good, and the tea selection wasn’t bad. I just know my selection of teas is as good at home, so it’s hard to justify spending the money out when I don’t have to…

Love!

Tried the gluten free afternoon tea today with my mom and it was fabulous – sandwiches, pumpkin bundt cake, and chocolate chip cookies tasted just as good as the “normal” versions, and they have TONS of teas to choose from.

For the afternoon tea you get your own little pot which is about 18 oz, I would guess. And they let you switch to a different tea for your next pot, for however many pots you can handle! I can’t wait to go back and try more teas (and foods) on the menu!

Bio

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
