Very great selection! I love to learn about tea and the owner is happy to share his knowledge with others. If you like tea and want to experience it, this is the place to go.

A wonderful Taiwanese couple runs the shop. They have a smaller selection of teas, but all of them good and some of the nicer teas are of excellent quality. They also have Chinese tea wares and Taiwanese snacks (try the lover’s mango). I always go to buy good Taiwanese Wulong to gift. If you express sincere interest to learn more about their teas, they might even invite you to sit and try a few at their traditional Chinese tea table.

Popped in today really quickly just to look around; I had a dinner engagement so it was really just to see how this place looked.

The owner Steven was an absolute sweetheart! I didn’t have a chance to look very thoroughly, but I asked him if they had any empty tins (I didn’t see any) and he showed me the selection, and then showed several of the different teas to me as well :D I LOVE flavored tea, so when he showed my boyfriend and me the lychee and peach it took a lot of willpower not to purchase them! (I had to keep telling myself “You have to finish the peach tea at home first.”) I did pick up a ‘Rose Green Oolong’ to try, because that’s a FLAVOR I don’t have.

I can’t wait to go back on another day when I’m not in such a hurry to look around more. There’s a huge selection of Yixing teapots I’d like to check out, and there were so many teas that I didn’t even glance at.

Awesome customer service, and Steven’s obvious enthusiasm for tea is 100% contagious!
