Ever since Blue Willow Tea Room closed a couple of years ago, I’ve been hoping for a new teahouse in my neighborhood. Now I’m sitting in one. Remedy Tea opened yesterday and serves almost 150 teas. Most of these are flavored teas, which don’t really interest me, but I’m drinking a cup of Nilgiri black tea from India, which is great and perfectly brewed, thanks to the timer they put on my tray. There are also desserts from Sue McCown and strong, fast wireless. Four whole blocks from home. And they’re playing Guided by Voices.
You can get tea (all organic) by the cup, small pot, large pot, or leaves to take home. A full menu features sandwiches, salads, and breakfast.
Remedy is kind of hidden half a floor below street level, but it’s plenty light. I’m hoping they catch some Victrola overflow.
