Bubble tea!

Just stopped in to sit down and have a quick drink, but happened upon the best bubble tea I've ever had! (Mango) I'm not a huge bubble tea fan, but I think I'll be waiting until the next time we can visit - won't forget that soon. Yum!

The Tea Smith is a great shop with a wonderful select of teas. The staff is very knowledgeable and you can tell they truly appreciate a good cup of tea. The South of the Border blend with chile and chocolate is particularly tasty. If you enjoy a decent cup of tea, you MUST head over here.

Stopped by here with a friend on a hot day looking for a reprieve from the heat. I got the Thai tea - the tea was not strong enough, it had too much ice and the the sweetness was not properly balanced. My friend ordered the peach bubble tea but unlike most places where the cup is sealed, she received... More

There are so many choices to choose from that anyone would walk away happy! The staff are happy to help and let you smell the various tea choices. I have had a few hot ones and haven't been disappointed yet. I recommend the Almond Biscotti Tea.

The tea selection is vast and delicious but the staff is a bit snarky. When the tea sells for $31 per pound you would expect a little courtesy. We drove 80 miles for the experience but have decided to shop closer to home.

Entire wall of tea to choose from.....sound good? Well, it's amazing. They also use the proper water temperatures (VERY important for teas), proper timing, and have add ins like honey and cream which I find very important in my tea service. Been in many places in NYC that weren't this good. AND.....they SHIP! So, I can have some of the... More

...that knows little about tea, less about bubble tea and nothing about Omaha. Tea Smith is a fine establishment in which to buy fine and unique real teas and rooibos and other accouterments for tea fans . I suspect that they sell bubble tea because it is a curiosity that will get folks in the door, but bubble tea is... More

I have been to the old town area in Omaha quite a few times. This was my first time going to the Tea Smith and it was a great experience! The servers were helpful and friendly. The selection of teas is vast but not overwhelming with the staff willing to help and suggest. I'll be back next time I'm in... More

I absolutely LOVE The Tea Smith. They always have great attitudes when servicing you, and have a comfortable, cozy atmosphere. Their tea is phenomenal. Anywhere from familiar tastes such as green or white tea, to exotic flavors such as their Peach Tango or Tropical Paradise Rooibos. The variety never ceases.

The staff at Tea Smith were welcoming and knowledgeable about tea. My coffee-obsessed companion even got a tip about a nearby shop to fulfill his non-tea-based needs. Because it was a hot day, I tried one of their fruity tea smoothies (delicious) and went home with a bag of their Earl Grey Special tea. I will return because it is... More
