small portions - nice meeting place

Posted on 08 / 05 / 2014

The atmosphere is cozy and this is a nice place to meet a friend for tea, but don't come hungry. The portions are very small. There are not many vegan options on the menu. The teas are lovely and the selection of teas is vast.

Pros: nice atmosphere , great location, great tea selection
Cons: not many vegan options , high prices, small portions

yerba buena location is nice

Posted on 04 / 28 / 2010

there are multiple locations for this tea lounge. I went to the one in yerba buena gardens right above the waterfall. The food and tea were good, and there were lots of veg choices. It was expensive, but at least this location had very nice ambiance, a nice patio, and a nice view. It was good to sit and relax there.

Pros: food, location, ambiance
Cons: price

Tea Time? Maybe not.

A tea restaurant with a couple of vegetarian/vegan options. The tofu jook is really good. The tea is great. I can't recommend this place due to the price. For what you get, it is WAY to expensive.

Pros: A good vegan option or two, Good tea
Cons: Not many vegetarian options, EXPENSIVE
