Tea shop in MD/DC?
I’m looking for a good shop not far from 20772. I’m not fond of DC and try to avoid it when possible. I’m from Texas originally, have been in the area about a year. Any suggestions?
I’m also open to online suggestions, if you have any. Just prefer a shop.
Capital Teas is in 2 locations in Bethesda. I wasn’t very successful on my trip to DC in finding tea shops but Capital Teas is a good one with high quality tea.
You’ll find tons of online suggestions here. :)
If you are willing to travel as far as Williamsburg, Va there is an excellent tea shop called Discover Teas. I believe their website is www.discoverteas.com
I’m so excited to check out these places! I LOVE Williamsburg and didn’t know about that shop! And I would love to explore Bethesda! Thanks, guys!! :D
I’m so glad you asked this Julie! I am just about to move to that area in the Fall and am now super excited about visiting these shops… and thinking we need a Steepster DC area gongfu party sometime!
kitten eyes will there be Dancong? But group trip non the less! I can’t wait to explore the area.
Iniquity, I’ll have to check for a meet up. I never thought to check, thanks!
AllanK I’ll check that one out, also!
Phi I haven’t had any dancong, yet. I’ve been stuck in black teas recently. But, I’m sure I’ll get there eventually. :)

@looseTman I think you just became my new best friend!! I moved here from Texas and haven’t made any friends in the area, and the people I know don’t know anything about tea. This area has been a barren wasteland to me and you just sent me to several oases!
I’m so excited!! I can’t wait to explore these!!
