This is such a cute little place. It’s on the corner of Bolm Rd and there’s a sharp turn so be careful and it can be easy to miss. The staff are great and very knowledgeable. They have free samples which change daily and you can order a pot of tea or hot/iced tea to go. Zhi was what really got me into the loose leaf tea experience and I think their tea selection is superb!



I’m a registered nurse working in the ER and currently a family nurse practitioner student. I’m also a tea enthusiast, video game nerd, foodie, fitness junkie, introvert, & nature lover. You can find me wherever there is tea and food!

I got started getting into loose leaf tea a few years back at (hate to admit it) Teavana. Since then I’ve started branching out. Black and oolong teas are my favorite and that’s what I drink the most of. I also like green tea, and white tea is okay. I like some rooibos tea blends and I’ve never had pu’erh.

My usual brewing method: 12oz mug, 1.5-2tsp loose leaf tea, fresh water heated to correct temp and steeped for correct amount of time (depends on what I am drinking). I use a Cuisinart 1.7L Perfect Temp Electric Cordless Kettle.

I want to get into the gongfu cha way of brewing.
