They hand source some nice teas.
You always know how fresh it is.
I am an hour away so I visit seasonally.
I also buy tea online, but there is something
to be said for smelling the fresh tea in the jar.
Thanks, I really want to check them out now.
I agree..it is really nice to be able to actually smell the tea. Right now I don't live near any good tea shops...there is one shop here in town that sells loose tea but it doesn't have anything special, so I just mail-order everything now.
In Lancaster, PA, my hometown, which I visit frequently, there's a great cafe, Chestnut Hill Cafe
, that sells a small selection of Rishi Teas...only a few offerings but they are really top-notch and a good diversity...including a Qi Lan oolong, a Yunnan Red, one very good Chinese green tea, and a Bai Mu Dan, and Chamomile, among a few others that I don't remember off the top of my head.
