Great selection of loose teas. Perhaps a bit on the pricey side for some of their options.

The food is tasty and inventive, but slightly pricey as well for what is mostly salads, sandwiches, and soups. I enjoyed the roast beef on my last visit.

They offer some tea service options from simple scones w/ clotted cream to Asian inspired wraps. I have not tried them yet, but a companion of mine enjoyed her scones.

Drink menu offers pots of tea, tea smoothies, and tea-based cocktails (non-alcoholic).

Wait staff is knowledgeable and helpful, even offering To-Go cups at the end of the meal for your leftover tea. I do not recommend going during prime lunch hour unless you intend to sit outside and have some time to spare. Acoustics inside are awful and the noise levels were way too loud. We had to shout at our poor waitress to order food; I hope she wears earplugs.

I love black teas, tolerate green, rarely sip white, and detest rooibos.

I’m currently on an oolong kick.
