Steeps was the reason I first started loving tea! One of the first places in Edmonton to make specialty accessible to the general public, it has a very laid back vibe, an amazing selection of loose leaf teas and convenient late night hours. All of the teas are on the wall near the front for customers to smell as much as they want. Some of my favourites from Steeps are Canadian Bonfire, Market Spice and all of the delicious fruity Rooibos options! You can buy tea loose leaf or buy a pot to stay at the store, which makes it perfect if you’re looking for somewhere to hang out for a bit to study/work.
