In Seattle      

 You may find it useful to look at a Map of Seattle Neighborhoods  helping you with some of the information on tea  houses and shops in the city!

Pike Place Market ( more...):- yes, this is the place where they throw the fish, and buy fresh fruits and produce here. Pike Place Market, a Seattle icon and the nation's oldest continuously operating farmers market, celebrated its centennial on August 17, 2007.   Many feel that Pike Place Market, with its fish and flowers and produce and arts/crafts, is the heart of the city.  It's less crowded in the winter months.  The market can be an overwhelming maze in the summer time.  You may stop at the information kiosk (on the street in front of the bronze pig) to get a map and/or directions. There are three places to have a cup of tea. the original Starbucks is here.

  • Perennial Tea Room, located in the Post Alley area of the marketplace, is a shop with a large selection of teas, including some high-end. They have a fabulous lapsang souchong .   While you browse the teapots and accessories, sip one of a rotating selection of four pre-brewed teas, and take some time to "talk tea" with the friendly women who run the shop.  If you're walking to the market from the monorail stop, this is on your way down the hill. Look for Post Alley (pedestrian walkway) when you see Sur le Table.
  • The Crumpet Shop, You can get a decent cup of tea (all you can drink for $1.50 as May 2007)... located just across the street and up some steps from the flying fish and bronze pig. These are made on-site, and you can buy packages to take home or get a crumpet with toppings to eat there. The smoked salmon spread, with sliced cucumber, is fabulous it’s a popular, casual order-at-the-counter café.
  • Market Spice, since you're at the market anyway.  Here, everything is permeated with the heavy scent of spices, but if you like spiced teas there's always a free cup and its fun to see their funky teaware.

Floating Leaves Tearoom, a gourmet Chinese tea house in the heart of the Ballard district, near shopping, a Sunday farmer's market, and the Ballard Locks. This is a destination spot for tea lovers. If you'd like to try making tea gongfu style, or you enjoy chatting about oolongs from Taiwan , this is the place for you. Check their web site for special events (musicians, tea classes, and more). They're open late for a tea shop: 11am-10pm, to 8pm on Sundays, closed Tuesdays.

SeattleChinatown/International District :- Hing Hay Park (see picture) Asian tea ware and teas can be found at a wide variety of shops and groceries ( http://www.cwok.com ).There is much incredible food to be had here, and most restaurants serve tea. If you're in the neighborhood, check out the Panama Tearoom. 

Situated in a historic hotel in the International District, you'll find the Panama Hotel Tea & Coffee House. The two-room space is very large and beautifully decorated. Furniture is beautiful (though sometimes uncomfortable) and antiquated. They serve Rishi teas and some pastries (and Top Pot donuts!). This is a great space for group gatherings, and it's a popular study destination for students. The custom at Panama is that the employee behind the counter makes your tea in a clear glass pot, removes and retains your leaves, and serves it to you in tea-appropriate cups and coasters. The restroom is stunning. Free wireless Internet access, so you can set up your laptop and surf the web while sipping your tea.

The TeaCup, on top of Queen Anne Hill. A nice shop with a welcoming atmosphere. This is a good place for loose tea and interesting conversation with the owner. There is free customer-reserved parking behind the shop, accessible via the alley.

University Zoka, in the University District (close to the University Village shopping center), with artisan-roasted coffee and loose-leaf teas. Really, this is more of a coffee shop than a tea shop, but if you're near the university it's a great place to stop for tea and dessert generally, the shop was filled with students and professors, study groups, and people busy on laptops (free wifi).

Shinka Tea, University District. Free wifi .Mostly a student hangout and bubble tea hotspot, but also serves a wide range of loose leaf teas.

Teahouse Kuan Yin, in the Wallingford neighborhood (near the U District). This is a popular spot for University of Washington students looking for somewhere to study while they enjoy a pot of well-brewed tea. They have free wifi and serve hot food as well as pastries.

Teapot Vegetarian House, Vegan-Asian with tea served in tsetsubin pots. The restaurant is located in Redmond , near Microsoft. This restaurant has a less interesting setting (in a strip mall), but the food and tea are wonderful.   There are tea tasting held on Saturdays at 3pm (as I know in May, 2007) There are actually two restaurants; the best-known is on Capitol Hill.  This is a classic " Seattle " spot, great for people-watching and getting a sense for the city. Nearby shopping is urban and funky, as are the theatres/clubs. (Near 15th Ave & Group Health Hospital ).
