Must say employees are genuine & very friendly. My first impression is the spices completely dominate the shop. For example, if you want tea everything smells like spice. They have a decent variety of green tea, black tea, oolong tea, etc. The tea I purchased...More

Great place to find something for everyone. The selection is eclectic, and a wide variety of spices and teas. They will customize spice and tea mixtures for you. Love there flavored sugars. And you can sample most everything you want to purchase before you do.
