    Ilana is incredibly knowledgable and sources some of the best teas I've had. Most people will recommend the amazing matcha latte, but for a real treat try some milk oolong or turmeric ginger tisane.

    Good drinks but service here is absurdly slow

    The tea room is slightly below ground level, which elicits a quiet-getaway atmosphere. Grab a cup of organic tea while you sit back against GraffiTea’s exposed brick wall or beneath their tree mural. Read more

    The café is located in the infamous “Physical Graffiti” building of Led Zeppelin’s sixth studio album. The tea room is slightly below ground level, which elicits a quiet-getaway atmosphere.

    Great tea shop for newbie tea drinker. No AC so save tea times for fall/winter. Ample selection for in-store sips or take-home loose leaf.

    Don't expect cute teatime pastries. Or any food at all, actually.

    Rude staff there. My friend and I would've liked to enjoy this place but the person who was working was so incredibly rude to us that we walked out before we even ordered. Avoid this place.

    Staff told me to stop playing stupid when I asked how long the shop had been there and for a card with their hours. No idea why. So rude. Bad way to talk to a would-be regular. Skip this place.

    An adorable place to grab a pot of tea. They have a wide selection and the staff is great. Word to the wise, find a potty spot before you go since they don't have a restroom. Read more

    A great place for dessert. The hibiscus tea is wonderfully fragrant and slightly fruity.
