I walked by this place and saw a sign advertising over 100 fair trade teas. Of course I had to have a look. It was cozy inside. It’s a bit cramped. Behind the counter, there are silver canisters of teas taking up a whole wall. There are a couple of places to sit, but it’s really too small to linger comfortably. After perusing the list of teas, I decided to go for a coconut oolong. I don’t know the source, but it was a very nice oolong. It smelled and tasted like coconut cookies.
I don’t know if the lady behind the counter owns the place, but she was really sweet. HOwever, she wasn’t able to answer my question about the oolong. Hmmm… I wanted to know how oxidized the oolong was but she seemed to have no idea what I was talking about.
YOu can get loose tea to take with you. Minimum of 2 ounces.
I think it’s a bit pricy. My oolong was $4 for a cup. Still the quality was pretty good. I’d be interested to come back and try some rooibos.
