The wall of tea may be intimidating at first, but the staff at this David's Tea location are fantastic. They're enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and more than willing to give you tons of recommendations. You even get a free sample of tea every time you walk into the store. Website.
The teas and the service here are amazing. This is serious tea here. We're talking estate teas from China, Japan, India and Korea(!) where harvest year and tea-making process significantly matters. We're talking ceremonial bowls, handmade tea filters, charcoal logs for boiling water and a rare matcha-grinding machine made by Japanese craftsmen. Website
The variety alone is impressive. The fragant aroma is something to be savored. Sit for as long as your like, for it's a huge pot of tea you're drinking. The tea is so good, you don't need sugar. All the foods are said to be "tea-infused" (so steamed in tea), even the "earl grey" cheesecake we had. Website
This place is absolutely great. The tea, the lattes are all amazing. This wonderful, tiny, little place serves a great selection of teas, pastries, sandwiches, etc., but the main reason for frequenting this shop is the coldblaster tea - One sip gives you a kick of ginger with the sweetness of orange and honey.
Finch's is outstanding. They have a nicely curated menu of sandwiches and an even more concise selection for breakfast. This is complemented by the normal selection of espresso drinks.
Velvety smooth and delicious! Making well-roasted coffee taste amazing. If you're a coffee connoisseur you will appreciate this place. The staff is full of personality just like the cafe itself
One of the better cafes in the city. Really good food, especially the desserts and baked goods. The desserts and coffees are great, as are the breakfasts.
Awesome sandwiches, one the best Americano's in downtown, and an amazing tea selection.
Thay are dedicated to the scientific side of coffee roasting and preparation.Their aim is to explore the essence of the coffee bean, the correct way to roast beans for their highest potential, and to serve and satisfy those with even the most particular taste buds. They serve some of the best coffee in town

If tea shops were more like pubs, GITC would have a happy hour. Not just a great quality tea shop, but a place to take your weary bones, have a rest up and, if choosing from a hundred teas doesn't stress you out too much, you can enjoy the moment and chat with friends. Email
