This is a fun little place to enjoy some hipster tea, it's a little too complex for me. I like my tea very simple and hot. I'm not a tea snob, but i think those who are would like this place. It was a little crowded when we came, lots of college students studying. A little expensive for my taste... More

while the tea is good and the offer plenty types, the place lacks in an appropriate offering to actually consume their product. Paper cups basically destroy the supposedly high quality tea. Little home made sweats are disappointing, too. It's not appropriate value for the rather high prices charged.

Loved the asian teas (try the Hong Kong Milk Tea), the baristas were epic, location was accessible and easy to find (wandered across it while walking down University Ave), and the minimalist interior design with an Asian tone was unique and a welcome change from the stamped/dyed feel of every Starbucks everywhere!

I love hot matcha green tea lattes, but good ones are nearly impossible to find (I've tried). The only other place I have had an excellent one was in Santa Cruz, CA. Asha is WONDERFUL! It is a tea house that is beautifully done and the staff are genuinely kind (no pretension). The tea cookies are fabulous!!

I loved drinking the Ali Shan Hi Mountain Oolong tea out of a gawain. Not too many places to enjoy this phenomenon. The egg tarts came in plain and matcha tea flavors. So far that is all I have tried. The staff is friendly and the place is nice with hi windows and nice decor thoughout. I know people come... More
