The selection of teas is incredible. I selected coco po, a fermented tea that has strength blended with chocolate and coconut - amazing. The baked goods are very good.

If you are looking for a very classy, refined, yet casual place to converse with friends or clients, Pippa's is THE place. She offers a plethora of teas from throughout the world, along with homemade pastries, sandwiches and soups. On Saturday, you can enjoy a high tea service! An additional bonus the the private cozy, courtyard. i love Pippas!

This is a shop that I have overlooked over the last several months. It is immaculately clean, the tables and furnishings are comtemporary and art is appealing. Teas are for sale or you may buy brewed tea or snacks and enjoy at an indoor table or an outdoor terrace setting. It's easy to find on Water Street. Staff is very... More

Pippa's is not your usual old worldly tearoom where tea is poured from a china teapot and served on pretty bone china with dainty teacups. The decor is eclectic, more on the modern side, with light wooden tables and chairs, a central table with a variety of books and magazines for your perusal and interesting original works of art on...

What an unexpected 45 minute surprise! Really, I was just tired of bad restaurant iced tea and wanted some fresh brewed tea. But, I never could have scripted the adventure that ensued. My husband and I bellied up to the bar, so to speak, and ended up getting quite an education about tea. When my husband expressed that he was... More

First time we've ever had clotted cream, it was delicious. Pippa's could be the the only excuse that you need to come to Port Townsend. Bright and sunny Saturday we got to sit outside in the garden and enjoy our scones clotted cream and jam. We also enjoyed a flavorful iced tea on tap. A refill of iced tea was... More

We're lucky to have Pippa's tea at the place that we're staying (Ravenscroft Inn). Actually stopping by Pippa's for a quick mid-morning or mid-afternoon nosh is great as well. The tea is fantastic and their selection of small bites is great.

Pippa's provided a unique experience combining exotic tea with scrumptious scones. With clotted butter and jam the portion size scone was quickly history, as was the lemon cupcake with coconut icing. With a wealth of teas to try, for today the Port Townsend Summer blend was a winner. The service was proper and the atmosphere relaxing and inviting...a must visit.

Pippa's is both a sit-down tea shop, and a retailer of teas. For the former, on a nice day it is most delightful to have a pot of tea delivered to you on the quiet patio out back. For chilly days, Pippa's provides very comfortable sofas, tables and chairs, or even the front counter. And there is a welcoming gas... More
