I love this place. Great tea selection, and a good food menu to go with it. It’s a bit out of the way for me, but if I’m in the area I will make sure to drop in for a cuppa.
This tea shop has by far the largest and most complete selection of teas in the city. Added bonus, no pesticides! All of their hundred + teas are organic, and you can tell that they have been grown and picked with the intention of savoring the plant and reaping all its benefits without altering it. When you go in there, you will see a very eccentric shop with lots of character.
They tend to be packed from when they open to right before they close at 11 pm (which is another reason I love this place, late night tea cravings are fulfilled here daily). If you wait a couple minutes in the middle of the shop, a table will open up pretty quickly.
To sum it up, this place is a must try. Even if you have to park a half a mile away, it’s worth it. Full service is pricey, so if you are hungry I would suggest getting a cup of their homemade soup de jour and a cookie or squash bread. But whether you’re hungry or not, just go. Great place to get cool tea gadgets, also.
Remedy Teas is a really cool tea room on Capital Hill. With its hip, modern interior, free wi-fi, and selection of organic tea, it epitomizes Seattle. And if those amenities weren’t enough, they have some really excellent teas. Their HUGE selection of loose leaf teas contains everything for the standard—Sencha, Iron Goddess of Mercy—to more adventuresome and non-traditional teas like Silk and Citrus or Blue Hawaii.
Its prices on loose tea are inline with other tea shops and prices for a cup or pot and pastries are competitive with other cafes in Seattle.
