I recently spent a relaxing afternoon at the House of Steep. I ordered a flight of 3 teas, Darjeeling, Mango Ceylon, and the Monkey Picked Oolong. I had never had Monkey Picked Oolong before, but this was everything an Oolong should be! The Darjeeling was wonderful! The Mango Ceylon was rather weak in taste. However, the Oolong and Darjeeling more than made up for it! While drinking my tea I enjoyed the Serenity soak, a relaxing foot bath of lavender, chamomile and oatmeal. The staff were all friendly and attentive. I’m looking forward to my next relaxing afternoon at the House of Steep!

This spot has something for everyone. It is not too intimidating for those new to teas, but it also offers interest for tea aficionados. The staff is very nice and all of the teas smell and taste great.

The menu has tea on the front and “everything else” on the back. There are house blends, which I highly recommend. I almost always opt for the blend of the month since it’s always changing. They offer tea by the cup, pot, or tasting flight. You get unlimited hot water refills on your tea and it comes with a hourglass and savory lavender tea cookie.

The edible part of the menu has room for improvement, but they are keeping with the “tea time” feel. Think – fruit & nutella sammies, rice bowls, and creamy quiche from local LeoNora bakery.

There is a separate menu for foot soaks, which take place in the sanctuary towards the back of the space. The chairs are comfy and the copper basin filled with warm water, rocks, and your “steep” of choice hits the spot. Refills on water during the 20 minutes keep your feet from getting too chilly.

The staff is very friendly and the chief steeper knows all the properties and uses for the ingredients used in their teas and soaks. I stopped in for some anti-inflammatory remedy and she was full of recommendations.

Very calm, Zen atmosphere. Friendly service and kid-friendly. I don’t know anything about tea, and they’re always so helpful with what I should try next. My daughter and I love to come here and share a pot of the wonderful caramel rooibos.
