So why do I have a picture of tea up there? You can only find Sweet Science in this cute tea shop called, Verdant Tea. I should probably rate the tea, but as much as I like to think I'm a classy broad, I don't know the first thing about tea and rarely drink it. I've actually been trying to dabble it in lately, though, to get my caffeine fix without the calories I consume in my coffee. But if you have a deep appreciation for tea, this place is for you. All tea is freshly brewed and loose-leafed, and made by very trusted workers. The workers are super cool and view tea as an art form and believe in the culture even more seriously than coffee culture.
They offer tea leaves on a shelf so you can smell before you buy, monthly tea tastings, and 'tea flight' on their menu - meaning they continue to bring you hot water to add to your various tea bags while you stay there for one price.
The environment there is great, too. It's designed to be like a greenhouse with large windows, natural lighting, decorative plants, and rich wood furniture. With free wifi, you could stay there for days and keep your creative juices flowing. Good tea + good ice cream + inspiring space = productivity. ;)
Ps. Isn't the packaging and overall branding so cute?! I love the consistency.
