Look out Capital Region there’s a new tea shop in town!

Yesterday, the best friend and I opted to take a drive up to Saratoga for the afternoon. We happily had lunch at a favorite salad spot and then wandered Broadway to poke around the shops. Of course as the warmer weather comes to our area the people watching was also rather good!

As we neared the end of shops on Broadway heading towards Congress Park (same side of the street too) I was surprised to see this!

A tea (and sort of bee) shop!

We looked at one another and she said “You know we’re going in!” So we did. The shop is only a month old and quite a number of patrons visiting on a late Sunday afternoon. They carry all loose leaf teas and some tea ware too. Plus you are welcome to enjoy a cup/pot of tea at their tea bar. Of course you can also buy loose leaf tea to take home.

Wait there’s more! In the back is a honey tasting room. That’s right honey from all over the US in many different flavors. I also noted on their Facebook Page it looks like they have their own apiary and may offer a local honey as a result! How great is that?

I didn’t get many pictures or talk too much with staff as they were busy and it was near closing time. But I look forward to stopping in for a longer conversation to bring you a larger post about what the shop has to offer!

Last but not least I did pick up a 2oz bag of their Cocoa Shou Pu-erh. This tea is a Shou pu-erh, cocoa nibs, and vanilla, in a word yum! I made a cup today and I can already tell you I will need to go back for more!

  1. Thank you for writing about our tea and honey shop! Coco Shou is one of our favorites, too 🙂 Let us know next time you are in and we would love to do a tasting with you.

    • I’d love to do a more in depth review of the shop the next time I’m in (get more than a photo of the front window). I’ll send an email the next time I’m planning to come up to Saratoga. Would love to do a tasting with you!
