As a tea lover, someone who works in a tea shop, and someone who also has an online retail tea business, I can honestly say, this was the most beautiful tea house I have ever walked into.
I am such a tea nerd that I actively sought out this place because I was mostly hoping to gawk at their beautiful teaware I had seen online. I got so much more than that.
We decided to check this place out as a family one morning. We expected to go in, order a drink, look at the teaware , and go about our merry way. Instead we found out that it is divided into a tea house side, and a retail side.
The tea house side had me in awe as I walked in. I was literally speechless. Everything was perfect down to the last rustic detail on the tables. I could barely control my excitement. We realized we were in for a treat and that we would be taking a seat to fully enjoy the experience. And that we did. The tea menu was amazing and the service was just as good. I'm sure the lady serving us though I was an idiot because I felt like a star struck teen.
We finished our tea and headed for the retail side. Once again my head exploded. They sold everything I have only dreamed of or seen on distant, back corner websites on the internet. I left with a bag of tea and some gorgeous yixing cups, which I am currently enjoying tea out of as I type this.
Truly a place for nerdy tea connoisseurs!
Cons: Not in Edmonton, Tea could be pricey if not prepared, That I can't give this 1 millions stars
