Since 1997, this very Zen-like establishment has brought a little bit of the Far East to Elmwood. It features greens, blacks and oolongs from China, Korea and Japan, as well as several herbals from the Middle East and North Africa, everything from the delicate Dragon Well to the feisty Purple Bamboo. It also sells a variety of handcrafted teapots and bowls from the East, including genuine Yi Zhing pots. Buy in bulk, or enjoy a steaming pot upstairs at one of the tables or on a tatami mat.
