This is a nice place to meander if you want to sample some of their teas and check out their interesting products. However, I tend to drop by during the week in the morning/afternoon to avoid crowds (it is the mall of America, after all). They have a wonderful variety of teas and I’ve found the employees able to provide good suggestions upon telling them what I’m looking for. Overall, I am very satisfied with the teas I’ve tried there and with the advice given about how to get the most out of my teas.
The most important thing I noticed about this Teavana location is how they give you a tad more tea than you ask for, and although they ask you if 2.4 oz is okay when you ask for 2oz, when you’re buying a lot of tea the difference can certainly add up. Thus, although the pressure to buy is somewhat subtle, it is definitely there.
