and said Edit

I wish I was a local who could enjoy sitting in the shop sipping tea many times per week. The shop has plenty of charm and friendly staff. The shop has a nice variety of teas and pleasant ambiance. The state capitol and other government buildings are the reason for most of my visits, and I am therefore grateful for the shop’s proximity to these buildings in the East Village.

Profile

Bio

Library director living in Spencer, Iowa. Trying to spread the good news about tea. Focused on camelia sinensis, only marginally interested in tisanes.

My favorites (so far) are congou and pu-erh (both types). I like some greens, lots of oolongs, and whites and yellows, but I enjoy drinking black tea day in and out.

Besides, oolongs are best enjoyed prepared in a manner that demands a little more time and care. So, I like to save those times for when I can fully enjoy the experience.
