The Domain store is Closed, Out of Business as of 2018 – Small shop wedged in small storefront. Always seems to be busy and noisey. I only ever stop in for some loose leaf and a cup to go, as I couldn’t take the noise and still enjoy a cup of tea and conversation.
Their people know tea, at least the ones I’ve interacted with. Despite the ongoing busy busy, they’ve taken time to talk to me about their teas and help me find something I might like. I’d recommend their house Morning Blend. I was skeptical, they insisted; I caved, they were right. ‘nuf said.
They have a fairly good selection of teas, straight up and blends, crammed into a small space. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, ask. They have a bunch stuck up on high shelves that might not be readily visible.



I’m not much active on Steepster because I haven’t been trying a lot of different tea lately. I have been buying M.T. Wendell’s Cheericup Ceylon because it is my favorite. That said, gifts of tea drop in every once in awhile and I try to bring my impressions here.
I am unashamedly stealing this rating description from Morgana.
