I love the Tea Store because of the interesting and huge variety of teas that they carry including black, white, red, green, herbal, flavored etc. Staff are very helpful & friendly. They have one particular kind of herbal tea that I love & can only purchase at their store. If I know that I am coming to Ottawa, I order... More

Stopped in here for a refreshing beverage while walking around Byward Market. Price is reasonable ($2.50 each), and plenty of flavours to choose from. We got two different iced teas to share, and liked that they weren't overly sweet.

I love all the jars on the walls that you can pull down yourself. Their selection is much better than David's tea and it is a great place to socialize and drink tea with friends. They have lots of tables and the decor is so cozy!

what I liked about this place was the incredible large amount of tea they have. you can drink a cup of any of the flavors they carry. Really nice to just relax after a walk in the market.

This is a small and quaint tea store in the By Ward market area. Good place to warm up and watch the snow fall outside. They must have over 100 different kinds of tea and they let you smell the teas before choosing what you want. They've got lots of good organic and caffeine-free options if you're into that. Service... More

If you thought that David's Tea was the place to be to get tea think again. There's thousands of variety. They are right within your reach to look at and smell.They will even make a custom blend should you want one.

My friend I were in ByWard and decided to drop by the tea store after dinner. It was after 7pm and most stores in ByWard Market Square were already closed on a Thursday night. It was great to be able to have nice hot tea in a cold winter night. There are a great variety of tea selections on the... More

This is the best tea shop in Ottawa by far! The tea selection is so varied and it's all so good. The scones can be a bit dry, but the pots of tea are beautifully set up for you if you stay for tea. The staff is all so great, you're sure to love this place.

I visited this store back in May when I came to Ottawa with 3 friends. We were new to all the flavours offered in the store. I can't say enough about the friendly and helpful staff. We enjoyed a pot of tea and baked goods every day and we all bought teas to take home with us. So, I returned... More
