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.

  1. 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.

    1. Mrs Cooks in the U-Village (was just there this week)
      Uwajimaya in the ID (bought our beehouse teapot here, big selection in color and shapes)

        Thank you! I'll head over to Uwajimaya tonight. Appreciate the info.

      2. 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.

        1. 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.

          Thank you!

            I've become a huge fan of the green tea at Koots, the new tea shop in Lincoln Square in Bellevue - without question the best green tea I've had in ages. Knowledgeable staff, to boot.


          2. 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.

            Good luck!
