Choose from hundreds of teas in eight different categories—green, yellow, white, display, scented, wulong, black and puer—sourced directly from the growers. Seven Cups has a Chinese trading license that allows them to control the supply chain from tea maker to tea house, ensuring the quality. There's an entire booklet of teas to look through in their teahouse, with names like 'Monkey Picked' or 'Buddha's Eyebrow', with a description of the background and sometimes Chinese lore. Knowledgeable staff can answer any question you throw at them, and they talk about tea vintage like it's wine. They have monthly specials in their online shop, and offer gorgeous teaware. Half of your time at their shop will be spent looking at what's on the shelves.
