I love this place! It’s great for hanging out around the university between classes. The place is small, but the atmosphere is casual and funky, and their selection of loose teas is pretty good. The staff are very friendly, and the owner is around most of the time (he’s also nice, though he’s not above bashing his local competition, which can get tiresome). The hot tea service is the best value; they give you a little pot and cup, which they’ll refill with water as many times as you like, and you can sit there for hours enjoying the free wifi. If you get peckish while you hang out, the chicken pot pie soup is delicious!

I loved this place. The atmosphere is very welcoming and very relaxed, complete with free wifi and comfy lounge seating as well as traditional table seating. The staff was very nice and open to my personal taste in teas and she wanted to know what I liked in detail. She recommended an Oolong, as I love strong teas. I tried Fanciest Formosa Oolong iced and fell in love with it’s flavor and feel. As far as pricing, the iced tea was a little expensive; a little over 4 dollars including tax. However due to the wonderfully large selection and brilliant atmosphere, it was well worth it. I have been informed that they also have a wonderful hot tea service, in which you can re-steep your leaves as often as you like and they renew your hot water as often as needed for a small set price. Overall it was a great place to enjoy good tea and good people.
