Before I walked into this cozy tea store, my knowledge of tea consisted of the basics. I knew green tea was an antioxidant and had many health benefits like preventing cancer. I also knew that I liked the Lipton diet green tea that I would often buy at the grocery store. I have to add that I am also obsessed with Boba tea which is tea with those clear, pearl balls in the drink.

Being that I am primarily a coffee drinker, I never gave much thought to tea. After my class on Oolong teas at Tea and Whisk, I have a much better understanding and appreciation for it. Leo was our teacher for the day.

Leo teaching us all about Oolong Teas.

He taught us about the history of teas, the various classifications, and proper steeping techniques. We also had the opportunity to try the different teas served at various temperatures which really did make a difference on the density and taste of the tea.

Tea and Whisk has over 70 different types of loose leaf teas for sale: Black, Green, Herbal, Rooibos, Oolong and White teas. At their tea bar, there is an array of handcrafted teas you can buy to drink while at the store. The store is quaint and cozy; it is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a cup of your favorite flavor!

  1. This place looks absolutely fabulous. My husband loves tea & I am kind of like eh, about tea. However, I would love to go to this place & sample all these amazing teas.

  2. Oh, I would love visiting that place! I have been drinking tea, primarily, since my teens ( and I’m 59 now!) I like green tea, white tea, matcha tea, and chai tea; oolong tea occasionally; and one of my favorites, Constant Comment tea, which has an orange flavor to it. I drink green tea every morning with honey in it.

  3. Wow I would love to listen to Leo teaching the history of teas, that would be so interesting to know. 70 different kinds of loose teas in Tea and Whisk, I wanna try them all 🙂

  4. This looks really great and thanks for sharing your video, too. And yes, I’m also a coffee drinker but I’d definitely try tea one in awhile.

  5. There are wine, whiskey, tequila, vodka tastings so why the heck not tea? Very cool! I definitely learned more about tea through this post. I hasn’t heard of all the types before. Very fun

    1. Oh yes, you guys are definitely tea drinkers! I have a greater appreciation of the different types of teas after my class here. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  6. I just finished reading a beautiful book by Lisa See about the history of the tea trade in China. I would love to be able to take a class like this. Great post!
