This is one of my favorite retail stores for tea – even though Teavana prices are often too high. This store features friendly, knowledgeable staff (but not too pushy) and you can sample top tea blends (like the aromatic chai blend – try it, it’s heaven!). The staff is more than welcome to discuss their selections and comparisons, or will open up a tub of a certain tea for a whiff. This shop does offer iced and hot tea to go if you’d like to try a variety without committing to the full purchase price. Overall my experiences there have been very pleasant.
