Friday Afternoon Tea is my favorite tea shop. Not only is the tea FANTASTIC (my favorites are WTF, Mechanics Blend and Pomegranate White), but the space is great for gathering with friends to write postcards and journal.
I also want to mention that Friday Afternoon Teas make great gifts – there are several themed collections, like J.K. Rowling (aka Hogwart houses) and fairy tales (like Snow White), but also teas like Dorian Gray. We purchase these as teacher’s gifts every year and they’re a huge hit! Don’t worry if you aren’t a black tea drinker, there are plenty of green teas and tisanes – and they all have complex flavors, nothing boring.
The tea shop is in the Wallingford neighborhood in Seattle –
4228 Stone Way N, Seattle WA 98103 – AND they have an online shop if you would prefer your tea shipped to you!
