Reviews for Blue Willow Teaspot

This place is an ABSOLUTE GEM! It has such a wide-range varieties of teas of the highest quality (my favs are the red oolong, honey bug bite oolong, and asatsuyu & gyokuro Japanese green teas). The price point to quality ratio in unbelievable. You'd seriously be paying 2x or 3x the $$$ amount if you bought it at a different tea shop.

Cute hidden tea spot with ample amount of seating. We order a few tea kettles and a couple mochi muffins. The mochi muffins were A-OK...dense, cold, nothing exciting. I rather them offer some soft fluffy fresh baked goods instead! We sat down, and each had our own cute individual kettles brought out to us. There's hot water kettles for self-refills. Overall, the place is quiet. The staff was okay. The vibe was A-OK.

Blue Willow is one of those kind of places that sets the standard for what a tea shop should be. They have delicious, high quality teas and for reasonable prices (Would highly recommend the Golden Needle Red tea). However, what sets Blue Willow apart is the service (or should I say family?). I have been coming ever since opening, and consistently feel welcomed by the wonderful staff there. Just now, I came in and got a lovely hug from Ali the owner and Lili one of the staff full review
