The people at this store don’t seem really invested in serving me.
It’s expensive and though they do have Tea Forte it is only in silk infuser form..I prefer to order online so I can get it in loose leaf.
The tea at this store does not blow my mind and you have to buy 50 grams at a time just to try something new.All the accessories are awfully overpriced as well.
Also I find it a cramped space.

I’ve gotten a few good teas at this Tea Desire and nice teaware like travel cups.

Since the minimum you can buy is 50g of loose tea, I was hesitant to buy various teas from them, whereas if I could buy like 20g I would purchase to try.

One male clerk there I found very knowledgeable and figured out my tastes and recommended a really good teas to me that I was willing to buy at 50g.

However a few times I was there, there was a female sales clerk who was pretty mean and pushy that I get large bags of tea. One time she insisted I needed to smell and purchase one specific tea, which I declined (as I knew I wouldn’t like it and it’s not what I was there for) and she got all “Whats wrong with you, who doesn’t like Irish cream tea?”

I complained once as I signed up for the newsletter and got an email about a sale – like % off all chocolate teas. No small print of tea quantity in the email. I go to the store and I’d find out the sale is for 100g or 1kg of tea. Not cool.
