Beehouse teapots SEA
Can anyone tell me where I might find BeeHouse teapots in Seattle? Neither the Perennial Tearoom nor the Queen Mary have 'em. Any guesses who might? Thanks.
I don't know if they carry them or not, but you might try the Teacup on the top of Queen Anne, 2207 Queen Anne Ave N, 206-283-5931.
Their tea selection is great and the staff is knowledgeable and kind. They have a small to medium range of teapots and other tea paraphernalia.
I see that this is an old post, but you can find them - quite a few of them - at Market Spice in Pike Place Market.
Any recommendations for a Seattle-area source of nice, not-overpriced Japanese tea pots/tea sets - other than Uwajimaya or Shiga's? Looking for the perfect one for a gift.
Also, any recommendations for *very good quality green tea* to be found in Seattle? I know very little about green tea, but if there's an amazingly delicious kind that's hard to find, I'd love to include a box/packet of it in this gift.
The Perrenial Tea Room on Post Alley is great and there's a new tea place up on Cap Hill that I've been hearing about (don't know the name, sorry). Teahouse Kuan Yin up on 45th used to have lovely pots, but I haven't been there in years.
As for the tea itself, PCC has remarkably high quality, not overly expensive Fair Trade teas in its bulk bins here in W Seattle (don't know about other PCCs). I'd buy my tea there (they have some lovely greens) and pack 'em in little tins myself, if I were you.
Whole Foods also carries BeeHouse teapots. I've purchased very fine green tea from Whole Foods as well - Silk Road teas carries an incredible Sencha.
The teahouse on Capital Hill is called Remedy Teas.
