This shop is located in Pikes Place Market. The name threw me off but it’s because they sell spices by the bulk as well as loose teas in the back. There’s a large wall of loose tea to choose from with a variety of modern flavors like caramel apple, cinnamon orange, and gingerbread. Most containers have a written label on the back, indicating the ingredients of the tea mix and you’re encourage to smell the teas. YES please!

On a small table near the packaged teas, you might find a sample of their popular Cinnamon and Orange tea brewing. I noticed that they sell packaged single bags of their signature teas as well as identical decaf versions. I purchased a few packaged teas as gifts and 1 oz. of each their loose teas that I wanted to sample.

Tea brewing equipment and gifts can be found all along the walls of the store and in the middle shelves. The glass jars are a bit pricey but everything else seemed reasonable. As for foot traffic, being in Pikes Place Market, it can be shoulder-to-shoulder busy on the weekends so I recommend going on a weekday if you want to beat the crowd.
