Teaism Restaurant Review

: Teaism is not just about drinking tea (although there are plenty of varieties); the restaurant group also offers fruit juices, beer, wine, saké and assorted lunch and dinner edibles. You’ll find a mostly Asian menu that includes soups (including the Japanese tea soup, ochazuke), sandwiches, bento boxes (Japanese small meals in pretty boxes), hearty entrées (including Thai chicken curry) and sides of Indian bread or sticky rice. Morning meals include sourdough waffles and Irish oatmeal with mango and raisins. Take home your favorite tea (how about pu-erh Camel Breath?) and pick up teapots, scoops and books on brewing. Sit upstairs, downstairs or outside. Other locations.
