I love the teas here! They're always introducing new ones. My faves right now are Cherry Blossom Rose Organic, White Champagne, and On the Waterfront. I'm trying a new tomorrow: Watermelon Burst. I think it will make great iced tea!

I'd been to Capital Teas twice before: once to their National Harbor store and once to Dupont Circle. Both times the tea quality was excellent, but the National Harbor store has much better selection, atmosphere, and customer service. I took this groupon and went back to the National Harbor store with a friend, where again the tea and the service was excellent. It's definitely worth the trouble of getting there; this is one of the best tea stores in the DC area. I wish I had an excuse to go more often!

From Our Editors

To say Capital Teas’ founders, Manelle and Peter Martino, know tea might be a bit of an understatement. Fifth-generation tea merchant Manelle’s great-great-grandfather, Francis Van Reyk, was a Dutch tea planter who immigrated in the 1870s to present-day Sri Lanka, where he planted and managed the Diyagama Tea Estate, from which the Martinos now source their Great Grandfather’s tea. Manelle’s family has been in the tea trade ever since, a tradition she has carried to her own specialty tea business, which has boutique locations throughout the Washington D.C., Northern Virginia and Maryland area. Additionally, Peter has become a popular speaker at World Tea Expos, where he frequently educates and inspires the tea world.

In addition to tea from Sri Lanka, Capital Teas carries more than 200 loose teas and herbal infusions from 18 countries including India, China, Japan, Malawi, and Kenya. A sniffing wall dispenses wafts of black, oolong, and green teas, and knowledgeable employees drift around the store’s tasting stations to explain each flavor’s nuances.

Capital Teas also pairs customers with accompaniments such as teapots, infusers, treats, and artisanal honey. In-store patrons may sample free tea samples—which are brewed fresh daily—while online purchasers receive a free sample with every order, in addition to earning rewards points by using the Capital Teas mobile app.
