I walked in her today when I was in town during First Saturday. This shop is absolutely lovely, and a very nice contrast to Voila, the other tea shop in downtown Frederick. The store has three rooms. The tea is in the back room, and upstairs there is a tiny sitting area to sip and enjoy tea and snacks.
I was extremely impressed at the presentation – there is a wall of tea in canisters. There is a rack of loose tea in test tubes so you can smell sample the tea. The offerings were also extremely impressive. I walked away with three different teas that smelled amazing and hope taste amazing too. There was a nice selection of traditional teas, and an equally nice selection of blends. I bought a caramel apple that smelled more strongly of caramel than any other caramel tea I’ve ever smelled before. They have a selection of organic, fair trade, and kosher teas too.
The staff are friendly and helpful. And they put my pouches of tea into the cutest drawstring cloth bag printed with the shop’s name and logo.
