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.
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!
