    Great food and tea. One of my favorite spots. Unfortunately, extremely slow service at lunch. Also, eat outside. The acoustics inside are deafening.

    The napa rolls are outstanding and you can't go wrong with tofu or chicken. The peanut sauce is superb

    The cheese plate is excellent, as is the selection of teas. Almost too many to decide! Our waiter was knowledgeable and personable. Great place to relax.

    The Big Red Robe Oolong is pricey, but worth it. They also have a great selection of Anxi ball style oolongs like Tieguanyin. Great stuff.

    The coffee here is way better than the Starbucks next door for about the same price. Fresh when you order, taste is as smooth as a baby's bottom.

    ALWAYS!! Ask for extra peanut sauce when ordering the Napa rolls. Add a beautiful coconut iced tea and finish off with a ginger scone.

    Get there early before they run out of salty toffee cookies. Also good happy hour beer prices (at a tea shop?) though selection is so so.

    Try the tofu napa rolls, wash it down with a beautiful coconut iced and tea and indulge in a ginger scone.
