Over priced tea, but that is what is to be expected from a ritzy mall. I’ve seen some really good teas come and go, they normally don’t stay long and they replace them with teas that are not as good. I would say they specialize in fruity herbal teas. Tea purists would be disappointed, as I am.
However, they have the coolest tea ware. It’s super expensive though. It’s the only place I know of locally you can buy awesome tea ware.
The managers I’ve come across are rude, loud, and don’t seem to care about their customers. A few of the employees are friendly. It seems to be a hit and miss.
My favorite place to go for tea in Sacramento. They are very chill, yet still very helpful, knowledgeable, nice, and they remember you, which is a nice bonus. They have a large selection of tea for every budget. If you don’t know what you want they will always give a good recommendation. Either take the loose leaf to go of they will brew you a pot (Bodum Tea Press). Hina’s has plenty of seating. They also do tea lattes, and I think espresso. Free wi-fi as well.
This is a great place to buy tea. It’s not a buy-a-cup-and-sit-down place which is what I expected when I went. They were very knowledgeable about the tea they had. They have other things than just loose leaf tea. They also carry some English tea snacks, tea tins, and other random small things. It’s a great place and I recommend going if you have a chance. The only reason I don’t give it a 5 star rating is because they aren’t the best of the best but still very very good.
