They have a large variety of teas, kept fresh in tin containers (which is how your tea should be stored, in a cool, dry place). Unless you're a tea aficionado, ask the staffer there to help you in your purchase. If you don't know what you want, ask them to recommend something based on what you know you like..
Food was excellent. You can really taste the smoke. Really good, professional, attentive and flamboyant wait staff. When you walk you immediately notice the aroma of dry rubs, BBQ sauce and smoking meat. The ambience is relaxed and urban. See Menu

David's tea is nice place to grab a cup to go as they offer different varieties of tea from green, black, and herbal. Particularly notable is tea-man Steve, who was kind and learned in the ways of tea. Also a great assortment of tea related accessories. And yes, their cupcakes are loaded with mounds of icinig if you're into that.
The ribs are massive and succulent, they fall right off the bone. The service is superb and the atmosphere is so cool. Awesome joint! As soon as you walk in you notice that the place is small but cozy. The servers here were very attentive therefore we got attention right away. See menu.
The restaurant is cute and casual, with the wonderful benefit of a parking lot beside it. Their foods are all fresh and you can see the kitchen staff working away in the open concept kitchen. The serving staff is pleasant and helpful. Good for Christmas Eve dinner. MENUS
This is the best place to get your loose leaf tea in the city. They have a huge selection, a great staff and a lovely environment. Sniff away to your hearts content, or grab a cup to go.
Ribs, brisket and pulled pork sandwich are great, potato salad is excellent. Quality is very good and portion size was giant. Given the price, this is a steal. Service is excellent . See menu.

In spite of its small size, Tsaa offers quite the variety of tea leaves. They have a great selection of green teas and their London Fog is one of the best in the city. Tsaa also sells food. Their sandwiches are delish (though a bit on the expensive side at around $6-7). They also sell gluten free chocolate desserts.

Majesteas is a lovely tea shop in Leslieville. You can pop in for a brewed cup, or buy a tin to gift to someone. It is a little expensive, but the tea is of really high quality. There are samples available so you can sniff them all before you choose. The staff lets you happily browse and smell the teas without bother.
Great place- good food (smoked ribs in whiskey sauce are awesome), simple and affordable with a little cowboy twist that makes it special- overall above expectations. The Texas style BBQ is very good. If your not well versed in BBQ, Texas style applies a dry rub to the meat. See menu.
If you like beer and good food, this is the place for you. The beer menu is second to none, with labels that do each beer justice in description. A great combination of European beers and those from around Canada. I would highly recommend this place to everyone. They have a massive and great beer variety and an unbelievable food menu!! Recommended for Christmas lunch/dinner...great fun! MENU
