I tell everyone I know to check out this tea shop. It’s my favorite place to get tea. My favorites are their Silver Needle white and Grand Shou pu’erh. 5 O’clock Friday tastings are awesome as well. I’ve converted many people into tea drinkers by bringing them in here!

One of San Diego’s great sources. Excellent selection for any tea aficionado, Chinese, Japanese, European style- they have something yummy for you. The staff is knowledgeable and they actively participate in educating the community. They will always greet you with a smile, too. Prices are always reasonable. The shop is done in a modernist style with a clean aesthetic. Same for the tea wares- modern and clean.

This place is awesome. Friendly staff, and some really great, even rare teas to enjoy. They pour gong-fu style, with a gaiwan and the place has a really hip vibe. Definitely some quality oolongs and greens. My favorites: jin fo gold buddah (medium to heavy roast wuyi oolong), yunnan gold silk (creamy, all-bud black tea), grand shou 1997 pu’erh (loose leaf). Definitely worth checking out.
