Great teas

Went there not knowing what to expect. Took a little longer to get our tea and food than I expected, however, it was worth it. The selection of teas can be daunting (especially when Lipton tea bags are my normal cup of tea). They have a book that explains the different flavors. The staff was very... read more

Great atmosphere, great service, reasonable prices, and great food! My wife and I visited for the first time as part of our 30th anniversary trip. It was unique and a great choice for our "tea time." We had our individual selection of teas, a lima bean humus which was awesome, and a pistachio rose cardamon cookie. I can't think of... More

Really cute tea shop, fits right in in artistic, downtown Asheville! The owner/server was very nice and there were lots of Bohemian chintzes and poufs to rest on as well. Cute foray away from the average coffee shops nearby.

I came here at my daughter's recommendation for someplace I could work for a while. I'm not a big tea drinker but this place could convert me! I savored my Masala tea and raspberry tea cake. The service was so caring and thoughtful. Even though I was working while here I came to embrace Kakuzo Okakura's saying that "One drinks... More

nice vibe, friendly and knowledgable staff, even if the place is a little pretentious with their tea. Tea menu is thicker than many good wine lists, but is easy enough to read and navigate. Enjoyed my selection of black tea

This place is amazing!! The menu is incredible, teas from around the world. The sweets are delicious. I had Chai and a raspberry brown butter cake/tart. Both were outstanding! After enjoying both we were told all of there delicious desserts are gluten free. I'm not gluten free and usually find gluten free sweets gritty and not so good. But these... More

My husband loves this shop and we stop every time we are in Asheville. There as traditional tables in the front and low, japanese-style tables in the back. I don't drink hot tea, so I can't speak as to the quality of the drinks, but the chill vibe and quiet atmosphere are very appealing. We were here on an overcast... More

While visiting Asheville for the first time, I found this place and saw it had great reviews. My hubs and I were excited to try something new. We Parked and paid for an hour thinking surely that was long enough. After sitting almost an entire hour waiting for our tea, we had to get it to go. So much for... More

Such a great place tucked away on Lexington Ave. They have so many amazing teas and it's a very relaxed environment. BUT don't let your 3 year old ring the tea bell or they'll go into freakout mode.
