The Spice & Tea Exchange in Evanston, IL
Adam Flugel rated this place

Extremely kind staff and a decent rewards program, but there isn’t a very large selection and all tea is priced around $5/oz. Additionally, the amount of info provided varies a lot. Some teas and blends mention specifics while others leave you with vague descriptors like “black tea” or “green tea”.

It’s a good place to grab some decent loose leaf tea if you’re in the area and need a quick fix, but the limited choices and lack of specific info makes it a pretty poor option for a longer term supply if you’re really into tea. You’ll occasionally find some gems though! I’ve found some great golden monkey, and one of my favorite oolongs (ruby oolong) there.
