Wonderfully unique

The atmosphere is fantastic!! Very relaxing. The staff was helpful when I couldn't decide what tea to have. My wife and I each enjoyed our tea very much. I wish I lived nearby so I could visit here more often!

Twisted Branch is an interesting little place tucked away on the second floor of a building in Charlottesville's downtown mall. I must've passed it 2-3 times while trying to find it. When you get inside, you're greeted with some intriguing decor. When I came in, there were several people there, but it still had a fairly quiet atmosphere. It'd be... More

Stay away from Twisted Branch. It's my secret. I like it the way that it is, with artists and musicians and cool, funky people chilling out and drinking tea. I like the fact that you won't even know that it is there. As tourists pass by en route to over-priced traps, Twisted Branch is tucked away on the second floor... More

It was great-very unique-very alternative kasbah looking sort of- place. A great break from corporate configured machine wrought plastic/Formica mall stores. A huge selection of teas or you can order a custom blend from knowledgeable staff. Menu beer sometimes live music and seems always a break from the outside.

The selection, and execution of the tea make this a must go and find in Charlottesville. Try the green tea milkshake. It is fabulous.

I was thrown off because I had to go upstairs to find the location. The design of the interior is unique. The aesthetics seem to be culturally reminiscent of indochina. I ordered a green tea mix, and i was pleasantly surprised to see how much matcha they used. To some who are accustomed to the Starbucks Green Tea Frap, this... More

I stopped in here as it's one of the few places on Main Street open late on weekends in the summer. I was overwhelmed by just how many teas they had (probably close to 100) but settled on a nice dessert Chai with no caffeine. They have a food menu, some baked goods and hookah as well. The decor is... More

It has to be said this did remind me of some venues I spent some time in while a student.......but that isn't necessarily a negative comment! In fact once I got up the old staircase the tea here was v good....a wide range of green, black, red and fermented teas. Good quality, properly brewed etc....I could see how the hours... More

The tea selection here is inspiring and soul-warming. You'll love whatever you get. The decor is incredible too-- you feel as if you are drinking tea in an enchanted rainforest. Sometimes, they'll have live music, and then the atmosphere is especially potent.

I had a great time eating here 2 times in the 2.5 days I was visiting Charlottesville. I had met Zap at the place where I was staying and she said she worked here. I love trying new places and I had just eaten a huge meal at Citizen Burger, so I needed some tea to wash it down. I... More
