Great ambiance, reasonable prices, fantastic service, and knowledgable. But please, hot water should be endless and priceless.
Great “asian style” tea house. Upstairs features many separated rooms. Some are private for 1-4 people and a larger group room towards the front of the second floor. The first floor is more like a standard cafe setting.
“We” sampled a variety of teas which were all masterfully brewed. Baked goods are wonderful especially the small meringue-like cookies (one of which is gluten free). The Sencha I ordered came with an enormous amount of leaves for less than $4 dollars, good quality (not great). My friends white chinese tea and smoked japanese Hōjicha were both very good.
One major complaint. Tea pots come with only on refill. Hot water after the 2nd brewing costs a dollar each time. I have never been to a teahouse or coffeehouse which charged for more hot water. It’s understandable that they don’t want people to come order a single tea and proceed to sit for hours without buying more. But for people who are ordering more teas and cookies endless hot water should be compulsory.
