I bought a lot of tea from your stores at Christmas as novelty consumable gifts. The Groupon motivated me to make your tea a more regular item.

I've always thought it was a great place, though normally too expensive for me to visit with great frequency. I don't fault them for this though; they have great quality teas. The groupon allowed me to try some of their teas that I've been curious about but not willing to spend as much for a gamble.

The staff is really helpful and it's fun to shop as you can see and smell each of the teas!

Get some different diffuser tea pots (since you seem to only have one choice of manufacturer). The "beehive" is an OK design but one will burn your fingers on the metal lid. Chatsford tea pots (see www.anniesteatime.com ) are more traditional and are all ceramic. I HIGHLY recommend them. I've used them for 10+ years and given scores of them as gifts.

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.
