Cozy, comforting tea room
Posted on 09 / 15 / 2013
This place is very sweet and charming. The location is close to the Takoma Park metro and has wi-fi, making it a good relaxing after-work drop by, or even during the weekends. The seating is comfortable with couches and chairs that are well-cushioned.
When you walk in, the place smells inviting, like warm tea. The lighting is relaxing, and the charm is evident. The patrons and staff are all calm by the ambiance.
On the right side, is where all the teas are located. You can smell them before ordering a cup or pot of tea. There are so many blends, it is overwhelming. If you're not sure, try the daily brew, which is made with a non-dairy milk and ready to order. They have flax milk and almond milk, and there is plenty of vegan snacks to accompany tea. This is not the best place for a meal, but, it is great for a cup of tea and light fare. Their dessert and food items are vegan - like cookies, pound and tea cakes, samosas and other savories depending on the day.
The only problem is that the seating is limited. It doesn't seem to be so crowded, but, I would welcome their success to creating a larger space so more can enjoy what they do and have to offer! Have some brewed tea, then take some home! I love tea shops, and am very pleased with this super-vegan-friendly one.
