Best tea shop in San Diego!
They have tea tastings daily and a great selection of high quality oolongs and pu-erh tea. Taylor is the owner and is extremely knowledgeable on tea and tea culture. The shop is on the small side, but the atmosphere, quality of tea, and knowledgeable staff more than make it for it.

This is a small, intimate tea shop. Taylor is very knowledgeable and a really nice person to hang out and enjoy tea with. If you are looking for the opposite of the high pressure/commercialized tea shop, this is it. Their selection of teas is somewhat modest, but from what I have tried so far, their quality is excellent. Highly recommended.

Carefully curated selection of hand-crafted pu’erhs and oolongs. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Friendly atmosphere. They have recently remodeled and it looks great.
