What Our Customers Say
All of the slushies were made with different organic tea leaves that the business sells. We tasted four varieties: coconut green tea, green tea & banana, banana split & strawberry and Shanghai smoothie soy. The tasting was so good that I actually walked out with two tea varieties for home to try and attempt my own slushy creations. The store offers several different hot tea samples as you browse the showroom so you will get a good idea of what they have to offer and what you do and don't like as you shop around. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. They know their teas very well. Before coming here I knew teas were healthy for you but had no idea you could make really tasty cold drinks with them. Pick the brains of the staff for mixing ideas and grab a full size bubble tea or make up a slushy creation of your own before you leave. Remember, summer is coming!
I sometimes get asthma with my allergies and it's always at night. I use my inhaler when I need to, but I've been using it less with this tea! Caramel Rooibos relieves my asthma symptoms and helps me to sleep through the night allergy-free! It also helps to soothe my throat and calm my air ways when I'm having an attack.

Maple Walnut Rooibos is one of the many "new" teas I recently purchased to try. I buy tea based on the health benefits and I have to say some teas I have had to learn to like. Not this one! It is smooth, nutty and just yummy. On the second pour I added a bit of honey and WOW. I'm sure if you add milk in would be like a milkshake What a nice treat!
I've been coming here since I moved to the area four years ago. Ting, the owner, is sweet as could be and extremely knowledgable. She is informative about the nuances, aromas, flavors, history, and origins of all the different teas she carries in her beautiful tea shop. There is a huge variety of loose leaf available that you can purchase from 1oz and up.
There are a ton of different teas for people to smell and several prepared in pots for sampling. Surely there is something for every tea lover here. Also, they carry lovely teapot sets on sale as well as infusers, strainers, tea travel mugs (on my wishlist!), tea to-go, and variety packs to try different kinds at home. The store is set up in a way that makes it easy for people to walk around and explore the wide variety of teas that they have.

- I've walked by here plenty of times, sampling the teas that are outside of the store, but I had never gone in until today. Having done no research in advance, I thought this was just going to be a cafe, but with tea instead of coffee.
No. It's way better than that.
They had many teas available to try and were labeled well, which I appreciate being someone who limits caffeine and has a certain food allergy. I love when establishments make it easy so I'm not *that* person holding everything up asking a billion questions.
Besides the complex, delicious teas, they have all of the accessories. If your cupboards are bare because you are a loose tea virgin, don't despair. They have strainers and whatever else you could possibly need to brew your own.
- Love this place! Great quality tea, and first pick as well. Plenty of tea to sample and everyone is extremely knowledgeable. Besides being great quality tea,the store is extremely authentic ( unlike other tea stores). This is the only one Green Teahouse in the US, the rest are in China. They also have bubble tea. Prices are reasonable for tea and they carry unique teapots to buy. They have awesome travel mugs. Overall if you like tea or want to start trying something healthy and tasty you must go!
- I love The Green Teahouse. Ting is always so nice and she is willing to answer any questions that I have and I always end up with a couple of delicious tea varieties when I visit. I recently introduced my mom to The Green Teahouse and now she is a fan too! It's always nice to walk in and sample some of the teas that are out and to purchase a fun bubble tea or hot tea to go!
- AWESOME store. Stopped by on a rainy afternoon to get a gift for my father and ended up becoming completely enthralled by their selection!
Both Tom and I are tea fans, but loose tea seems intimidating! The staff is super helpful and showed us a few options that I'm sure will have us drinking tea way more often. They had about 8 different tea samples out, which makes it even harder to narrow down what kinds to get! The staff is excellent about suggesting types of teas and even told us that the leaves can be re-steeped 3-4 times, making loose tea more economical than I originally thought. They also stock tea sets, artwork and other accessories for purchase. This store is definitely worth a visit for any tea lover!
