The owners, Lynne & John were welcoming and knowledgeable. They offer a respectable variety of gourmet teas and nice assortment of teaware in a zen inspired shop and tea room. They also offer a lovely zen garden for warmer weather that I was sorry to miss. I enjoyed 7 steepings of their LiShan High Mountain Oolong while my husband walked the shoreline (he’s a coffee drinker). I brought the LiShan as well as a beautiful new tea bowl. I have since ordered from them online, and the order was shipped quickly, even though it was during the holiday rush.
