They have so much more than just teas! Different spices, meat rubs, and sugars. The staff was super friendly and encouraged us to pull things off the shelves to smell. In all, an amazing experience.

The location is darling -- very charming. I have tried their Rooibos Chai several different ways. I purchased it from two of their locations and prepared it several ways to really give it a chance. Nothing helped. It is just dull, flavorless and boring. I...More

I love growing and drying my own herbs and spices, so I found this shop to be fascinating. I actually shopped at this tiny store twice during our recent visit. They have a nice selection of spices and teas. I'll return on my next visit.
