Very friendly and personable owner and staff. Great tasting teas. Good policy on free tins and the ability to get discounts when you bring them in to be refilled. Looking forward to taking a class or two there.

Very knowledgeable staff, the owner is there most of the time and is very nice. Her classes are small and very good and very reasonably priced. I have yet to be to a class there that I didn’t think I got my money’s worth. Good quality teas and nice selection of teaware.

This is the best tea shop in the entire Midwest. Although the website is under construction, I’ve been told it will be up and running soon. Even as such, you can still order tea over the telephone and they will ship anywhere in the continental U.S.

The tea classes given are professionally done, and interject the humor and personality of the shop owner & instructor. They are listed at: www.teamarketclasses.blogspot.com

With over 80 selections of premium whole loose-leaf tea, you could spend many wonderful moments smelling tea samples and tasting the teas that are offered everyday. The teas are stored properly and when you make a purchase, you are given a FREE tin in which to store your tea — AND you can bring it back for a refill and get 10% off when refilling a tin!

They are open 7 days a week — even on Sundays from 11:00-2:00.
I tell everyone I know about Tea Market and highly recommend it to you.

Sincerely,
Tea Evangilist

Nice little shop, has a variety of teas, and the staff is very knowledgeable. Also teaches classes. No on-line ordering, and their web site needs a lot of work. But I’ll enjoy going here from time to time.

Updated my rating because their new web site is on-line for ordering. I really like this place. They also provide tins for all purchases over 2 oz. Which is wonderful. (I don’t know if they’ll do this for mailorder, but I’d assume so.)
