We stopped here as part of the Omaha Culinary Tour (highly recommend) and what a great surprise! The owner spoke to us about his passion for teas, was very interesting and we tasted two teas, both were very good.

This shop in the old market part of town has an amazing inventory of bulk teas from all over the world. It also has a wide variety of cups, infusers, and other tea accessories. In addition, the owner and staff are exceptionally well versed in tea cuisine.

Can buy wonderful variety of high quality teas or just stop in for a hot tea. They also have tea cups and pots for sale. The owner is passionate and comes out to talk with the customers.

On a hot summer day, there's nothing better than bubble tea or milk. This classy place offers a wide range of hot and cold teas and smoothies. I had blended coconut bubble milk. It was delicious!

I found the Tea Smith because of Groupon. Since then they have a loyal customer. They have MANY different kinds of loose teas, beautiful tea pots and infusers. My daughter loves their bubble tea.

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.

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.
