“It's Tea Time!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

For those who would want a break from your usual Tapioca Express or Tea N More across the street, Tea Station is a lovely cafe to have some tea and unwind. Their selection of teas is tremendous and is one of the few tea places I know in San Diego that carries tea beyond just black or green or jasmine. And they're served in little teapots!

The decor is clean and inviting. The staff is mostly nice. I've only had one run in where a staff member seemed frazzled but I'll chalk it up to being her first day. The food is not something I'd bank on. I've only had their snacks, so I can't comment on real meals as of yet. But they're all right seeing as the primary focus is the tea.

A tip to the wise: order loose leaf teas so that you could refill on hot water over and over again.

“Open late with great service and drinks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Most people come here for drinks but they also serve food as well. You can hang out as long as you want and they won't bother you, with the exception of checking up on you every once in awhile.

A variety of drinks are available as they have a large menu. Try the Thai iced tea or the green tea ice cream drink. Both very tasty.
