The store was crowded when we visited on a weekday morning (to be fair, Pike Place is generally crowded). They have a whole wall of loose leaf tea in the back of the store, and a lot of it is flavored. They have a lot of funky options like Orange Creamsicle (not my favorite, but I had to try it). I liked the ability to pull jars off the shelves and smell the teas within. The wall also sports large and legible signs that say “Please do not remove jars from the shelves when ordering,” but almost everyone removes the jars from the shelves when ordering. When I was done browsing, I took a list of ~13 teas to the central counter, and a staff member bagged my order up expertly. My tastes are not very sophisticated, but this store seems to cater to people who like novelty teas; people with more refined palates might do better elsewhere. Fun if you’re willing to brave the crowds. Definitely not for the claustrophobic.
