Rating this place just in time to see it close, which is very sad as they’re the only tea place relatively close to where I live.
My first time in the store was for the Friday tea-tastings. The staff member explained some history for each of the three teas presented and demonstrated some traditional brewing techniques. Her information seemed a little rehearsed, but I was willing to let that slide. Though it was a little annoying that she didn’t seem to have any thing to say when I asked about the other teas for sale.
The atmosphere was pleasant and comfortable. I decided to order a pot of white tea and stay for a while. As is my continual disappointment with most tea shops, the water they used didn’t seem to be filtered very well, and so the tea’s flavour was very muted. I also decided to order some food (I forget exactly what) and was again disappointed that it seemed to be from a frozen package and microwaved.
But aside from the that, they actual tea that they carried was of very high quality. I got a sampler bag of Oolongs that I’m still working through, and they’re all really fantastic.
Over all, while certainly not the most impressive of tea shops, this place will be sorely missed as a source of high-quality tea, and a wonderful place to simply relax and enjoy the atmosphere.
