Are you from N. Va.? I grew up in Falls Church and went to Church in Alexandria. I live in the south now but still love the D.C. area. Thanks for your blog, very interesting and fun read.

I don't think there's a shop like this in Saint Paul, and that's unfortunate for me. But it's no problem. I have to get my Puerh by mail order anyway because it's a specialty item. I wouldn't find it locally just about anywhere except tea meccas like San Francisco.

buy lipton tea

When I lived in Arlington, VA about 8 years ago I started going to Old Town Coffee Tea and Spice. My sister had gotten me hooked on loose teas and this store had the largest selection that I had ever seen. I have since lived in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Pittsburgh, Seattle, and Philadelphia and have never found a tea shop that has measured up. From the selection of very fine quality teas to the level of service provided by the friendly and knowledgable staff, this place is the best. I miss living so close to them and always make a point of stopping by to buy some tea when I am visiting DC.

Great blog! Keep up the good work.

Stephanie Hanson

Thanks! Your kitties are adorable, btw.
