My new happy place – I have become addicted to this place. A Genmaicha in the morning, a Macha Shake in the afternoon. Seriously. I would go twice a day if I could. The little quiches and tortes are yummy too. Also, the owner is so friendly and helpful, always making great reccomendations. Also the atmosphere is peaceful and relaxing. Where else can you sit by the fire place and play Connect Four? Definately my new happy place.
A friend of mine recommended that I go to Teavana and try the Matcha shake. She is a good friend. First of all, its a great place. The staff is so helpful and you can tell they all really love being there. I havent recieved that kind of great service in a long time. Second, it is so clean, well lit and cute! I love the fire place. FREE WIRELESS!!! And last, but not least, the tea was amazing. I find myself on Polk St. dailey now. Im working my way through over 100 teas, I will not stop until I've tried them all. The best part is, I feel so much better. I don't get the afternoon coffee crash, my skin feels better, and I know it is so much better for me....You've got to check it out!
Terrific Russian Hill teahouse serves up everything from Earl Grey to exotic elixirs like Gyokuro Imperial green tea. – In Short
Coffee is everywhere, but finding good tea is a treat. Part tea bar, part tea emporium, this cozy shop offers an enormous variety. Hot or iced, you can create your own mix. Try a signature blend or ask the friendly staff for suggestions. The purple and gold interior is contemporary and minimalist, but a fireplace makes for a warm feel. Ample seating is available indoors and outside on the sidewalk on warm, sunny days.
User review by 4247 – I have one thing to say....Vanilla Bean and Rooibos Tropica. Teavana rocks!
new age hooters – This place is phenomenal...beautiful confused, (not as confused as they were at Green World Mercantile a few years ago or maybe I was just younger then), new age women at work and at play....
We especially like Rachael, Kay, Eunice, Christa etc in any order....Johnathan is a very funny and likeable guy and raves to occasional guest star Tea Bacigalupi.
And the tea is first rate too ...my favorites...thai tea w/german rock sugar and condensed milk...caramel macadamia rooibos....the currant scones are also good.
Come in and take a break from the greed heads, MBAs and Greek system and lil sisters that seem to be washing up on the beach here on Russian hill...free wireless too. Hunter Thompson..Jack Kerouac and Bukowski all would have like it here if they weren't all dead. Czech it out Poindexter!!
Best tea shop in the city – Finally a place I can go to and enjoy some tea. There are so many different varieties to choose from, I still havent experienced them all. I have been searching for a good tea shop for quite some time now and I am glad I found this one. The people are wonderful and I love the location.
Great Tea – Teavana is by far the best teahouse that I've ever been to, the service is warm and friendly and the tea is wonderful!!!
What A Great Little Tea Shop! – I learned so much about different teas.
Their brewing method was really cool.
What a nice change from your typical coffee house teas.
Great Tea Better People – First off, the service from the beautiful ladies behind the counter makes Teavana a definite stop while in SF. Not to mention the incredible selection of tasty teas and treats. For all those laptop people its also a hot spot for all your wireless needs. The cozy fireplace adds to the warm atmosphere. If your looking for gifts or accessories, they've got that to. My recommendation..... try the mate vana on ice......
Yummy tea with friendly service – If you want a place to hang out, sip a warm beverage, and read a good book, but you're "too cool" for Starbuck's (and really, who isn't?), this Polk Street Tea House is just the place. Coffee Houses are SO 2002....become truly blissful at Teavana!
