Breathe the soothing bouquets of oolong, sencha, rooibos, and jasmine pearls with today's piping-hot Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of hand-plucked, organic, fair-trade teas and local artisan baked goods at the Zhi Tea, located at 4607 Bolm Road. A tin of tea is the perfect gift for friends in need of relaxation or for someone who is indifferent to tea, but enjoys fashioning flutes out of tin containers.
Zhi's fine teas are lovingly hand-selected by the owners, each of whom has three hands to more lovingly hand-select. Zhi is sure to please any teaophile with its comprehensive catalog of white, green, oolong, black, flavored, and herbal teas. If you're looking for an exotic cup of Sweet Desert Delight ($14.50 per 4.2-oz tin), an afternoon slurp of sweet and nutty Genmaicha ($14.50 for 4.5-oz tin), or a soothing sip of Restful Blend ($13.50 for 2.8-oz tin) before bed, Zhi will hook up your leafy hankerings. Zhi Tea is also a great resource for tea newbies: the friendly owners are happy to make recommendations, and offer sniffs and sample sips of their wares. Zhi Tea also offers a new sit-down tea service with locally baked artisan goods.
- I have tried many rooibos blends and this is one of the best so far. This is one tea that I actually found myself ordering more of even before I finished my review! – Cindy, Teaviews
- The owner was really friendly, but hands-off at the same time. He let us browse through the teas on our own - but was there to answer any questions we had & made some pretty good recommendations. – Shelly L., Yelp
