I discovered The Tea Leaf completely “by accident” (thanks to Groupon!). I came up with the idea to meet a friend there that I had not seen in years. It was the best decision we ever made! You have to make a reservation ahead of time so the proprietress knows how many sandwiches AND scones to make (Yes, she makes them all HERSELF!!!). I tried the Strawberry Kiwi tea for the afternoon tea service, and I was in absolute heaven! I was so impressed that I decided to bring my mom here as her birthday present. My mother and I had the most wonderful time, and really enjoyed the whole experience. She loved it so much that the next day at work, she could not stop talking about how wonderful the experience was at The Tea Leaf. The owner is such a nice lady, too.

Bio

I’ve always liked tea, but now I LOVE it! I’ve discovered Teavana, which I like a lot. Then I started reading and learning about different kinds of teas and how to steep them. I’m also continuing to learn about the health properties of tea. I love to meet other tea enthusiasts and fans. I am new to Steepster, and I cannot wait to learn more about this great community!
I like Rooibos, herbal, white, and green teas. I like black tea (but needs to be decaf). I think blooming teas are very pretty. And I like the tea accessories/“gadgets”! I prefer my tea to be sweetened, but of course enjoy unsweetened teas too.
I’ve never been to an official tea “house” or “room” before, so I’m definitely looking to explore new tea places.
I’m from New England, born and raised. I love crafty things (and hungry to learn more techniques!), especially jewelry making. I’m working towards becoming an American Sign Language interpreter. I love meeting new people and making new friends. I like to explore new places and to travel (when I can). I’m always up for a good board game or game of Words With Friends or Scrabble.
