“Electic tea shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

Quite an assortment of teas, the only downside is the service is consistently slow.

“Ahh, not a hint of mass-market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

Over 100 specialty teas (served hot, cold, or frozen -- they even have bubble tea); a tidy menu with pastries-to-die-for, quiches, and parfaits; outdoor seating overlooking the fabulous St. Petersburg banyan trees; indoor seating in a relaxed atmosphere with tables, table games and free wi-fi...what's not to love about this place?

I just finished a spinach and mushroom quiche and ginger-lime tea, and couldn't let another moment pass without providing a brief write-up.

Tea shops are tricky, as many of them have gone by the way of the Blackberry -- really cool when they came out, but their usefulness was superseded by -- well, reality. Hooker Tea Company is that exception that's not only maintained their business over the last seven or so years, and have weathered the fickleness through a solid product, in-touch owners, a great location, a fantastic atmosphere, and a staff that really knows their stuff. I dare you to stump them.

I love this place, and looking around, I'm not alone in my enjoyment. It's an indulgence, yet not. I'll forgo the clutter, chaos and faux feeling of any mass-market coffee house for this gem.

“What a fun place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011

Loved the wall of tea and the way they opened the lids of the cans to let you smell the tea. Great little place, nice people. Yummy fruit bowl in the morning too.
