I visit these guys at the farmer’s market in Pacific Beach. The girl who worked there was so helpful! She was sampling Caramelized Apple and Coconut Cacao Pu-erh, both of which were very good. After she talked me through the teas there, I ended up leaving with the Pu-erh, which I love. Next time I need tea I am definitely going back there!

This great little tea shop is tucked away in an unassuming office building, making it very easy to miss. While the outside might not look too spectacular, the inside is a nicely decorated retail room filled with the smells of delicious tea. The place is VERY small, but the teas looked very nice, and it’s obvious that the place is a labor of love.

Tea Gallerie carries only loose-leaf, and everything is in their own packaging. You can buy tea in nice 2 oz tins or bagged 2 oz and 4 oz. They seemed to carry blends for the most part, though they did have a decent selection of straight greens, oolongs, and pu-erhs. The only non-flavored black tea I saw was an Assam. They carried a special Darjeeling green that I’d never heard of before and would love to go back and try.

The woman I talked to was very nice and knowledgeable about all their teas. When I mentioned what I was looking for she directed me to a bunch of different teas, and even went into “the back” to see what they had that wasn’t on display.

Apparently they have a strong presence at local farmer’s markets and are making an effort to reach out into the community.

Overall, this is a nice little place that seems as if it’s just getting started. San Diego continually disappoints me with the lack of quality tea retailers, so I genuinely hope the Tea Gallerie finds success and continues to grow.
