This coffee shop has a very large selection of loose-leaf (and organic) teas. I love the Sencha. It kinda bugs that they keep all the teas out in glass jars though.

So this is a coffee shop but they also have a decent selection of organic, loose-leaf teas. I might be able to save a few bucks if I were to buy teas online but I just really prefer buying things in person (immediate gratification, no S&H, what you see is what you get). The staff is really nice and the vibe is really warm and laid back and not crowded at all (on weekday evenings at least).

This traditional tea house in Seoul has an extensive menu of Korean teas and a very beautiful, warm, natural interior.

This place was adorable. I loved the English Breakfast with cream and sugar. It has more of a restaurant than a cafe vibe and was really busy when we went. It’s a really fun place to have brunch with a friend or two. It’s like a lively, British tea party crammed inside a cute pantry. They also sell British snacks, candies and teawares in the adjoining room next door.

This is my favorite tea room in the US. It’s a very traditional, serene Korean tea room, right on the west edge of Koreatown. The lady who runs the shop is really nice.

This is a good place to go if you want to buy fun, blooming teas. I haven’t been here in a while actually and one of the reviews reminded me that they have tea accessories. I remember now that they had really cute teapots. Definitely going back soon!

I love the fun, flavored black tea blends here like Cookie and Champagne Rose. They go great with powdered cactus honey and smell delicious. It’s like drinking a tiny dessert. The sales people at Lupicia are really knowledgable and nice. It’s not a cafe but you can smell and taste the teas there and buy them in loose leaf or pyramid bags. Lupicia was one of my first experiences with serious tea shopping and helped get me through my days in a cubicle.

Tea brings me a little closer to my future forest dream life, away from the big city. My favorite teas right now are Sencha, Oolong and Earl Grey but I also like tasting new teas.
