    Wonderful green tea, oolong tea, black tea, and everything else you can imagine. Worth the time and money to fully appreciate.

    Get the Green Ecstacy. Or the matcha shake. And come grab the Jook for brunch.

    Delicious, if expensive, tea. I frequently come here by myself to read a book and drink a pot of the breakfast blend black tea.

    The chèvre-stuffed dates are sooo good! Get them alone or as part of the Moorish Tea Service.

    Turmeric tea is good for your heart and has very potent anti-cancer and anti-arthritis properties.

    Their tea soup with smoked salmon is excellent. It comes with green tea that you can pour over the meal or enjoy separately as it's own drink.

    It's unpleasantly warm in here. Like a geriatric facility with no ventilation.

    The Cacao Mint smells amazing, like Girl Scouts' Mint Chocolate cookies. It doesn't taste anything like that, though. Try it, but other teas are better.

    The wasabi salad is a bit overrated. Try the moorish salad instead if you have a hankering for a salad.

    Schizandra Berry ice tea is very refreshing. If you find it a little sweet, cut it with your spring water and double your tea!

    Come in on a lazy Saturday & get a Chai and some scones. Use twice the amount of cream and jam they initially serve you. Leave happy :)
