Tealish

Tealish knows a thing or two about location. Having been in the Trinity Bellwoods neighbourhood for quite a few years now, their location on Walnut about 1/2 a block south of Queen was good, but not good enough . What's a boutique tea shop to do? Well, they moved up and slightly to the east, to a new cozy little store with a proper Queen Street view.

Tealish

It's cheerful, cozy and full of tea. Tealish is already starting to reap the rewards of a better location. Toronto isn't much for side streets, and now in a more visible location neighbors who never knew they existed before are now calling the tea boutique home.

Tealish

Wood floors, exposed brick and a zen like tea room in the back make it a welcome retreat from the busy retail block.

Tealish

Inside I found 100+ varieties of loose leaf tea, from White to Rooibos and everything in between - including Orthodox varieties like Gyo Kuro, which is a high quality Japanese green tea. I also found Silver Needle, which is rare considering it is only harvested in China 2 days a year.

Tealish

Loose leaf teas start between $5-7 for 50g and go up to $30 for 250g.

Tealish doens't leave me high and dry in the tea-tools department either. Lots of different kinds of teapots, tea balls, infusers and various other tea making implements are available to go with my Lemon Meringue Rooibos.

Tealish

In the back, I got my tea fix with an expertly made iced tea, shaken over ice ($2.75 small). There's also tea lattes ($3.95 small), tea smoothies ($3.95 small) and of course cups of tea staring at $2.35 and going up to a full pot for $5.95

Tealish

It's obvious to me the staff here really know their stuff. Behind the counter are a dizzying selection of teas in giant canisters and it seems as though they have every one committed to memory.

Tealish

Tealish is open Monday-Saturday 10-6, and if you can't make it to the store you can order teas online at www.tealish.com
