Not specifically a tea place. They do coffee and tea equally. But they offer a decent menu of teas to choose from and they use their own blends. Comfortable seating, free wifi, a good menu, and good service make this a nice place to stop.

OK, if you like Teavana. The sales people can be a bit pushy, but that’s pretty typical of this chain.

Lots of interesting loose teas to try. It’s a chain in China but this is their first location in the US—or so the guy said who was helping me.
You can buy teas or they will make tea for you to your liking. You can also do a tea ceremony by appointment.
One drawback, not much seating. But that’s not a huge issue considering they don’t really sell food.

Great atmosphere, attentive waitstaff, large tea menu, and very affordable if you buy by the pot.

Great atmosphere. Wonderful food as well as a great tea menu. Just wish it wasn’t so far away from where I live.

This place was ok. Kind of stuffy, small, and overpriced, but ok. It’s been closed now for about a year.

Profile

Bio

Health coach and lover of tea.

I prefer cold tea to hot tea. But living in New England I end up drinking more hot than cold.

I go through periods when I only want my tea neat. I never add sugar or milk to tea.

I love lemon in hot and cold teas. And I sometimes experiment with other fresh fruit additions.

I tend toward subtle fruity blends of black, green, oolong, and rooibos teas but I’m trying to expand my tea palate a bit. I hope being part of this website will help.

Other websites I love for my non-tea related hobbies: AllConsuming, Goodreads, and Gowalla.

I am interested in tea swapping. I have tea by Gypsy Tea (someone else might like more) and Yogi Tea (not for me but someone else might really like) that I feel a need to find a new home for. Also anything in my cupboard I’m willing to swap. I love trying new teas!

Gypsy: Peach Blossom, King Chai, Grand Green
Yogi: Green Tea Goji Berry, Mayan Cocoa Spice, Mexican Sweet Chili, Tahitian Vanilla Hazelnut

My ratings (because I need some way to conceptualize this vast system) are:

01-39 Unfollow.
40-49 Will never speak to again.
50-59 Would consider calling again.
60-69 Can hangout in my cupboard until they find a place to stay.
70-89 We can be roommates.
90-94 Here’s the key to my cupboard.
95-100 How can a tea be this perfect and special? We must be soulmates.
