Dionne Christian opened The Teahouse in 2003, determined to supply tea lovers with exotic flavors culled from her travels in China, Malaysia, Indonesia, and South Africa. Between the shop's own matcha blends and wholesale concoctions, The Teahouse distributes more than 150 international teas. Patrons can pair teas, lattes, wines, or beers with items from The Teahouse's massive menu, whose pastries, sandwiches, and other treats are created with organically grown and locally produced ingredients and hints of tea. To share their love of herbal beverages, The Teahouse's specialists host 90-minute workshops that cover a variety of tea-related topics such as tea blending, hot spiced tea, and how to spot iceberg seeds in pitchers of iced tea.
