1.) It’s a booth in the market building itself. They’ve got all the tea tins attached to the wall, looking a bit like their logo. It’s awesome.
Sadly, when I went, they hadn’t gotten their debit machines yet, and I had no cash. So no tea for me this time. I plan to return!
2.) Edit: Stuffed my pockets with loose change and went back after class today. They’ve got a Dorian Grey! And it was delicious. I will have to bring more cash next time and go home with a bag.
They’ve also got more diversity in their teas than most tea shops. So many teas I want to try. I hung out there long after I’d finished my tea and just chatted with the staff; it was a lot of fun. They’re planning on getting even MORE teas in—we discussed a few we’d like to try, including tarry lapsang souchong and teas from the estate in Hawaii. She mentioned giving tarry a trial-run in the shop (she has lapsang, and it’s been surprisingly popular). I’d definitely show up to try it.
3.) EditEdit: I’m quickly evolving into a full-blown regular. I was there when they got their debit machines! I was there when the man called asking if he could come in an install them today, and I joked about the chances that I might still be there, hours later, when he did. And then lo and behold! I got to be the very first debit transaction. I feel special. I’ve also met a few of the other regulars as well. It was all very exciting. This time I managed to stay all the way till closing. If classes weren’t in the way, I’d probably be there at opening.
During this visit, I picked up three teas to bring home with me: Dorian Grey, Cream Irish Breakfast,Organic Wild Blueberry Black.
Their website is still in the works, so although I’ve added them to the database, there isn’t much information yet. Or photos.
