I can't say enough good things about this shop! First time visiting and the selection is amazing! Friendly and knowledgeable staff, and great prices, too! Also, the quality of the tea is wonderful. I have also ordered tea from their online store on several occasions and I received it quickly. Please make sure to stop in, you won't be disappointed!

We enjoyed a beautiful high tea for my friend's birthday. The staff was friendly and informative. I had the berrylicious green tea with too many sweets to count. This was a nice drive away from Charlotte.

Do you enjoy drinking delicious things? If so, you must stop by this tea shop! There's such a huge variety of teas to choose from. You can smell them all and choose what speaks to you. The owner is very nice and so knowledgeable. The shop is beautiful and artsy and clean. You won't regret supporting this gem of a locally owned business! Now for the crown jewel of the whole place... Order Dani's fresh chai! I didn't even like chai until I tried hers. I'm not sure what kind of magic is brewed in this cup of comforting hot joy but it's one of it best things I've ever had to drink! Trust me...go.get.the.chai!
