Teaism has always been next to empty when we've been there. It's not because of the food. I think it's more because it doesn't know what type of place it wants to be. The most recent visit was to sit in their outdoor terrace on...More

Description
Teaism is a local restaurant group with three locations in Washington DC and this one in Alexandria VA. We cook from scratch with healthy, wholesome ingredients. Our menu is Asian inspired to accompany our list of nearly fifty different loose leaf teas and herbal infusions. With a lovely zen atmosphere and a full bar, Teaism is the perfect place for any time of day. Local restaurant critic Tom Seitsema loves our breakfast menu. Must haves include the okonomiyaki and the Salty Oat cookies!
