    The staff is great - friendly and knowledgable. And the tea is delicious. Stop I'm for loose leaf, they offer tastings or sit down in the back for food and tea to stay. Perfect date activity.

    One of my favorite tea spots with a pretty large selection of loose teas. You can sit down for table service and enjoy a pot (or three), or browse around for some tea or pots to take home.

    Try the Assam, Ceylon or Paris tea! (or all three in one visit!) The vanilla scones are to die for, literally. Come w/ a friend because you'll feel too guilty devouring 2 (per order) in 1 sitting.

    You don't have to be a fan of flavored black tea to love the Soho Blend (chocolate, vanilla, and coconut!). It was specially made for this location and it smells like happiness.

    Their selection of teas is vast. Grabbing freshly brewed versions is a treat whether it's hot or cold. Their menu is something to be noticed as well. Nice food and treats.

    Great tea & fantastic scones. The service leaves lots to be desired in both the tea room & cafe. Kudos to the cafe guy in the hat for trying, but everyone else there seemed 'over it'

    The wall of tea tins is so large that the staff need a rolling ladder just to reach them all! I loved that the staff was not pushy at all. Their tea lounge is a wonderful place to take a load off. Read more

    This is where I fell in love. You can find the most amazing earl grey ice cream here. The tea flavor is strong, with a delicious caramel-y taste. Decor is cute, but seats fill up fast. Read more

    Elegant relaxed tea & scones destination, and a great place to pick up a lovely tinned tea gift - for under $10 you can get a fancy looking gift in a container they'll want to save. Or treat yo self.
