St. Paul, MN 55116
City Pages' Description
Stop in to sample a pot of one of nearly 200 teas and other infusions in this clean, well-lighted place. Proprietor Bill Waddington is usually on hand to offer advice and help navigate a world in which first flus means the first tea growth of the season and words like flowery and tippy are bandied about as easily as phrases like half-caff-skim-cap are in coffeehouses. And hey, if you decide that you still like your mocha latte better than a pot of one of the world's rarest, most prized teas, you can tell Waddington, and he won't even get mad. He's heard worse. That's what happens when you run a tea refuge in a coffee world.
Tips from foursquare
Huge selection of every kind of tea and really knowledgable staff to help you choose. Definitely a must try for the Twin Cities!
Try a cup (or two or three!) of the amaaazing chai.
The tea bagging here is amazing! They are so large and tasty! My mouth waters every time I pass by. This is the best place is town!
BEST hot chai in town. Skip Starbucks and caribou. You won't be disappointed!
If you like a stronger tea, try the puerh. You can steep it forever without it going bitter.
