Last time I went to Seattle there were tons of these little espresso shacks- like in corners of parking lots, in the middle of no where. There were also drive-thru Starbucks, which blows my mind- I'm just getting used to drive-thru Dunkin' Donuts around me.
But anyway, I like Cynthia's thought when she saw several famous coffee companies gathered together on one city block. Will we ever see that with tea? I don't know if I would want to per se, as I feel that tea is such a patient drink, something that shouldn't be rushed if preparing it. But then again, I would love to get tea on the go when I am in a rush (which is more of my reality than not).
Pike Place Market- absolutely wonderful. I must have missed the Crumpet shop when I was there last (which was a couple of years ago).
any suggestions about other tea-cities we can feature?
