Neat selection of teas and lots of blooming teas. Also selections of straight up ingredients (like rose buds) if you wanted to blend your own tea. Prices are pretty cheap for loose leaf teas.
Looking online, most of these teas are totally from Silver Leaf with same names and descriptions. That’s fine. I’ve gotten my favorite teas from here (Lovers Cup, Rooibos Paradise, a Matcha genmaicha) and the staff is friendly.
The tea doesn’t come with steeping instructions, so I’ve often over-cooked my teas until I educated myself on typical water temperatures and times. Still with that said, you need to experiment with the steeping times.
When you buy a lot of tea (I’m talking a pound. Hey, it was my crazy husband who bought that much as a gift to me) they package it in a paper bag. I needed to get a tin for it as I noticed the tea was losing fragrance.
I got a white tea (Phoenix Eye) and an oolong tea (a Milk Oolong) that had no fragrance and tasted stale with no flavor. The white tea particularly tasted like nothing. I didn’t smell the tea before buying, if I did I would of noticed it was too old at that point.
Overall – great store to have in the Farmers Market. Great selection, however a few misses. Smell all your teas before buying.
