looking for good loose leaf tea in NOVA
Looking for a good loose leaf tea place in NOVA. Been getting the bag stuff at TJ and whole food. Not that great.
More chinese and english teas. Less fan of indian.
Wegman's in Sterling has a pretty big tea selection. And they display tins that looks like they have loose tea. Might be worth checking it out. Also any Chinese grocery store should have some loose tea selection. GW in Marrifield, Kim Sum in Annendale, or maybe even Grand Marts.
I had a thread on this maybe a year ago. Wegman's has a pretty good selection and they have somethings at cheaper prices than other places like your basic jasmine pearl green tea, and etc. It is loose leaf and you can scoop as much or as little as you like.
Teavana in Tyson's has excellent tea.
The place mentioned in old town isn't bad. If you can get to the Ten Ren it is very good.
I get my loose leaf tea from Super H Market, which offers a wide choice of Japanese and Chinese brands of loose-leaf tea -- all sold in in prepackaged plastic, rather than in bulk. My favorite tea is the genmai-cha (brown rice tea) from Maeda-en, a Japanese company.
