The people who work here are absolutely fabulous, the tea just as great. I love coming in and just talking, the manager is a phenomenal woman who has never steered me wrong and knows some of the greatest blends!

I have to admit that I’m TEAVANA junky! Yes, they are expensive, however, well worth it. I LOVE all the teas that I’ve tried, that have both been suggested and that I have chosen.

I find the staff very helpful, friendly, and not at all pushy. They suggest, and then let it alone. They will also tell you if a particular tea isn’t so great, then suggest a better one with similar flavor. I usually am there every 2 weeks or so, and they remember me. I find it to be a very relaxing and enjoyable time while I’m there! I will usually get a cup of a flavor that I want to try before I buy, again, a bit expensive, but usually worth it. I’m thinking I should get a part time job there since I’m there so often!

THANK YOU TEAVANA STAFF FOR MAKING SHOPPING SO ENJOYABLE!

I’ll admit to Teavana’s being expensive, because I work there :)
However, the tea is quality, fresh, stored well, and is delicious.
I say this as a tea drinker who knows her stuff and was weaned on tea.

Aside from our 99+ quality teas, we also have a great selection of brewing tools, storage options honeys, and gorgeous, authentic Japanese Tetsubin. As a bonus, many of our teas are EU standard organic and all are preservative-free.

…And I’m sorry for the level of the music, Rabbit. Those of us who work there hate it, but our DM insists. We turn it down so we can converse with customers at a normal volume during weekdays:) However, I do have a bone to pick with you regarding our Ti Kuan Yin… it does give the name in addition to Monkey Picked Oolong in our tea menu, and there is absolutely no way that you paid $7 a cup for it. Our top price for tea-by-the-cup is $4.99 + tax for a rare tea. Even with two add-on teas, it would not cost you that much! Let’s be honest about that!

IMHO, this place is over priced. When I heard there was a tea shop opening nearby I was so excited that I applied to work there (was never hired though). When I first went there they were blasting trendy music so loud that it was a little annoying. I wanted to buy a cup of tea- but was disappointed to find out that they mainly just sell tea for steeping at home, the girl there said that they would sell me a cup but it’s “very expensive and we recommend that you just buy some to make yourself”… so I bought a $7 cup of monkey picked oolong (it didn’t say so, but it was a tie guan yin), good quality but not worth what I was charged. They also sell over priced teaware.
