Tea Places: Bellocq Tea Atelier
The tea selection wasn't enormous but there was something for everyone. The owner was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. I had heard that the teas are very expensive but I've seen worse. I generally expect to pay a bit of a premium for this kind of atmosphere, beautiful packaging and very good quality leaves. I wound up purchasing 2 ounces of White Wolf and 1 ounce of an unusual green tea called Tai Ping Hou Kui. When I declined a shopping bag, my teas were tied together with an adorable yellow ribbon. I will definitely be visiting this charming shop again soon.
