This is a really cozy place with a nice atmosphere for meeting up with friends and just hanging out. It’s kind of like a cafe with pastries and snacks as well as tea, but once again their tea is definitely the highlight. I went with my friend one rainy afternoon and we had quite a nice time just sitting and talking for hours there over our cups of tea (which were periodically refilled with hot water by the very friendly staff). The style of the place would probably be most accurately described as modern, with definite Asian influences; mostly, it is well-lit and comfortable. It’s a shop, so if you fall in love with the tea you try you can easily take home a tin of it. I love the way the tea tins are arranged – each different “type” of tea (black, green, etc.) has its own element on its label (fire, water, earth, etc.). I bought a tin of Tie Guan Yin oolong and I love it – very aromatic, with a lingering flavor. I’ve also received a tin of their O’Haggerty Breakfast blend as a gift, which I definitely recommend highly as an Irish breakfast-style tea. My friend had Peach Black which both looked and smelled really beautiful.
Perhaps a bit pricier than some cafes in the area, but well worth it, I think, for an afternoon out. All told, a lovely little place to go for tea.
