Las Vegas Tea!?
I didn’t want to step on the other topic’s toes RE: The Expo since this is stand alone…
Since I can’t make Las Vegas until Mid Sept – I was wondering WHERE one could go for Tea “Year Round” in Vegas (when I do go!?) Any suggestions!!!!?
Not sure but would love to see everyones reply. Good question.
oh yes please and NV fans let us know! i’ll be at Defcon late July (27-Aug1) and would love to have some tea!
looks like there are, theoretically, a few tearooms in Vegas. But no reviews yet :-(
There’s a Four Seasons hotel with afternoon tea – I’ve read a few reviews of the afternoon tea at other locations and it sounds amazing (if you like British style)
I think there was or at least used to be a Teavana in the Fashion Mall…does anyone know about any others!?
Bumping this thread because I found a new and amazing tea shop in Las Vegas! Located in Henderson near Bad Owl coffee is Tea & Whisk!
They have a great assortment and loose leaf, both straight and flavored. It’s still new so the owner is still picking and choosing his inventory. They have a tea tasting station set up in store with multiple gaiwans ready to steep samples per your request (FOR FREE). I stopped by twice during my last visit to vegas, and I think I may have tried at least 10 different teas. He just kept pouring and making recommendations for me left and right. The owner is SO nice!
I promise I am not self promoting or anything. It really is THAT great of a shop, and since I don’t live locally hoping others will stop by and support!
Okay the choices for tea service and tea shopping is surprisingly large.
Sheffeild spice and tea
Harney and Sons
Teavana 2 locations
Tea and whisk
Lucky dragon casino has 2 tea houses
Harney and Sons
There are a few others but I havent been there yet.
Supposedly according to yelp its at 3110 polaris, but google maps has it at civic center drive.
Mandarin Oriental does a really nice tea service. It’s English style afternoon tea. They used have a different service but you need more than 2 people to do it. I don’t know if they still offer it. They have Tealeaves loose leaf teas and generally prepare them very well.
Four Seasons also does a nice English style afternoon tea. The tea itself is passable but the food is good.
Milk Teaze is a boba/milk tea shop (apparently you can adjust the sweetness of your drink) with a bit of the risque Vegas thrown in via the servers. I haven’t been but tea friends in Vegas find it the atmosphere amusing and think they have pretty good boba.
Is the Harney & Sons a shop with service or open to the public? I know they have a big distribution center there but didn’t think they had an open to the public place. If they do, I need to go!
Honestly I have no idea, they showed up in a search for tea shops, ive never been there though.
Yelp has reviews of it..
Also – SW Tea Fest is Las Vegas is SOOON!
Feb 25 to 26th.
Ugh I want to go so bad. But sadly I’m on the east coast so I can’t really justify the flight :(
A friend just mentioned visiting Lucky Dragon (one of them, I guess it is, per an earlier comment). He said the teas seemed solid to him, based on trying an Alishan and a Mi Lan Xiang Dan Cong, and they also sold Wuyi Yancha. As for price range, he said: They varied..$8-58 per pot. Most were in the $15-20 range… I enquired about how much they would sell an Ali Shan per gram..I got a quote of $1.25. All that sounds reasonable, perhaps on the high side, and maybe not the best place to stock up on loose tea (versus mail-order) unless your tea budget is a bit loose.
