My wonderful boyfriend surprised me with dinner at Radiance Tea House & Books, my absolute favorite semi-local tea place. We shared a pot of oriental beauty over a delicious meal. I was shocked and amazed because Mike managed to drink it all without adding any stevia! Not only is the tea amazing but the food is great too. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable. I picked up some gyokoru green tea since I have a hagi houjin on its way from Japan. If you ever get a chance to go, their tea tastings are a must see. They hold them every Tuesday night. Sign up for the email list to receive updates on what teas are being served at each week’s tasting. Now that my work schedule allows me to be a normal human being, I plan on attending as often as my wallet will allow. Taking the PATH and subway is a bit of a hassle but it was so worth it.
