Sip ‘n See: Capital Teas

Stop and Smell the Teas!

Stepping in to Capital Teas, at 731 8th St. SE, the sweet yet subtle scents of the various teas displayed in the front of the store on the so-called 'tea wall' overwhelm the nose. There are at least 30 different teas on display, each accompanied by a placard describing blend and flavor. There is a quaint lounge in the back of the store equipped with a television, well-stocked bookshelf, magazines, chessboards and benches. On warmer days an outdoor courtyard patio beckons.
