Zen Tea

Owner Connie Miller imparts her extraordinary knowledge of tea without a hint of geekiness. She stocks more than 140 varieties that cover the spectrum of greens, blacks, whites, herbals, and a few organic rarities. Relax with a cup at the small bar or at a table in the cozy front room, or buy loose-leaf teas—and a selection of tea packed on the premises in high-quality mesh bags. (Miller also sells plenty of tea-brewing supplies.)
