But, it would take a lot to make me hate a tea shop. There are one or two I avoid or maybe even slightly disdain (due to, say, offering a product line which is uniformly low-quality yet highly priced). That's about it.
As an interesting side note, Teavana is expanding to almost 200 stores in the United States this year and they are actually opening up 3 stores in Mexico. I don't know much about world tea consumption but Mexico struck me as an odd choice.
