Tea notes > Tea Bars/Cafes/Teahouses
So … they are a tea bar. Nice white walls by now are rather dingy and dirty looking. Got a feeling of kitchen… laboratory… (maybe from the test tubes laying around with tea leaf in them,, for sale yes).
DJ booth for the hip people that frequent the place, and some late nite raves? and a sidewall with some white-top transparent plastic jars with loose tea in them (which i wouldnt buy) the other wall of this elongated facility is a large mirror (purposed i suppose to maximize the feeling of space)…Didnt really like the setup, i dunno, somewhat not very pleasing to my deranged psyche.
and some LCD/plasmas displaying the menu – which for what purpose they are on TV i dont know… the menu was static… maybe when the DJ starts to scratch and stuff the TVs have a purpose then? oh and the speakers they had sonically sucked with some music they were playing when i was there.
They seem to have alot of business, most people buying the bobo?..booby? “tea”…anyway,
Service: While there were ~1 people in front of me, i waited about 5 minutes for a small cup of tea… maybe it was just that day.
they have a website tavalon.com where you can enjoy spending your money for their tea. have fun!
some “tea reviews” for tea produced at this establishment > CLICKER <
Overall: not bad for plain loose tea. but slightly overpriced.
