After spending the whole summer in Nashville, and as a tea lover, I can’t believe I didn’t find this place sooner! The fact that such a great traditional tea shop can be found in a sleepy strip mall in Franklin is astonishing. They were really enthusiastic about getting everyone from the tea novice to (relative) tea expert involved in gong fu tea preparation, and they had us sample a wide range of teas. I urge you to sample their oolong from their village, as it’s one of the better oxidized Chinese oolongs I’ve had. They have a fantastic selection of teaware, including a number of various tea trays, one of which I bought mainly due to their exceptional sales skills (you probably will go home with something, as I was happy to do).
