Best Seattle Specialty Shops

  • 416 Maynard Ave S, Seattle • International District
    Lawrence Lerner - It's my go-to for authentic Chinese teas. The owners are incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and work directly with tea farms. They buy the tea directly.

    You can find everything you need for an amazing tea experience from herbals to rare pe'urs. They are also very accommodating and do elaborate tea tastings. You can find a wide range of affordable tea sets and more pricey ones. Great sampler boxes for gift shopping.

    I cannot say enough good things about this shop. If you're in the ID or near the area and you like tea, give it a go.
