I have no tea shops (aside from Teavana) near me up in Virginia. So when I was headed down to the beach for a week I knew I had to find some tea places to visit!
The shop is fantastic to visit, they have a huge variety of teawares from teapots to travel mugs, some yixing pottery, chawans, etc. There is a huge variety of teas as well, some of which have little aroma jars so you can walk around and smell a bunch. The sales associate will also pull stuff down for you. They source from TeaGschwender and other place I don’t know the name of. The tea is very fresh and very good. They have a wall of “safety deposit boxes” of tea as the sales associate told me, as well as some already bagged in pre-determined weights. You can get 50g samples bags in a set of 4 (or more), or 100g, 250g, and 500g bags (I think…). Oh, there is also the newly installed honey bar in the back of the shop where you can try and buy different flavored honeys. The sales associate was very helpful and was glad to show me around and let me smell a ton of different teas. She wasn’t pushy, though it was obviously she was trying to sell tea (but that is her job!). She was honest though when suggesting teas. I think if I lived in the area it’d be a dangerous place for me, I will definitely stop by again if I’m ever in the area. Also check their Facebook page for events, there was a cheese and tea tasting the morning we visited.
