I discovered Angelina’s Teas online and realized that it was only 45 minutes from my house. That was about a year ago, and I have been so excited ever since then to visit in person. It finally happened that yesterday when I was in Winston Salem for a 5k that the shop was open and it was the perfect time to visit. The owner greeted me as soon as I walked in and seemed pleasant enough. It seemed to me that he is a quiet type and would’ve been happy to answer any questions that I had, but as I didn’t have any he was just quietly bagging up the tea that I selected. Oh, and the selection! It is outstanding! There are 3 walls just filled with jars full of every flavor imaginable of loose-leaf tea. I was in heaven and certainly had a difficult time choosing which ones I wanted to try. I think I finally settled on about 20 different teas, but with the pricing being very reasonable and the smallest amount being an ounce, it is very easy to pick just a little of many teas to try at home to find your favorites. I cannot vouch for the quality of the tea, as I have yet to make my first cup, but it looks and smells very nice. There was also a nice selection of teawares, although I thought the prices on those items were very high. I understand that it is a small business, so the higher pricing makes sense and most likely wouldn’t stop me from purchasing an item if I needed/really wanted it. The atmosphere is a little more quiet than your average coffee house, with a full wall full of books and a television. There was a group there when I walked in discussing politics, which made the atmosphere cozy to me. Another lady came in for a cup of tea, and then 2 friends on the way to a wedding came in for some tea also. Overall, it was a pleasant experience and I will certainly visit again the next time I am in Winston Salem.

My go-to spot for tea. The owner is very friendly and shares a lot of information about tea. One of the things that really impressed me was that after two visits, he was able to start recommending different teas to me based on my previous purchases. I love that the store now carries some used books as well.

It is a great place for tea information and they have a considerable selection. The owner’s attitude can be off-putting.

Extremely knowledgeable owner. I went in once and said, “I once had a tea that tasted like X and I miss it.” And he found something very very close to what I was remembering. Another time I went in and said I wanted to learn the difference between Japanese and Chinese green teas. He gave a good overview, then sold me several samples of each so I could try them for myself. What keeps me from giving a five star rating? The store is not heavily trafficked, so you’ll often be the only person in there, which can get to be a little bit weird. Also, the teas are stored in clear glass containers, which makes me wonder how long they’ll last. But if you want to learn about tea or talk to someone who knows their stuff, this is a great place to go.
