I'm excited to start this week with a feature on one of the newest tea shop in the city. Located in the heart of the Exchange District, the Amsterdam Tea Room boasts itself of providing a wide range of loose leaf teas and beautiful teaware. I went with my friend, Erika who ended up buying a bunch of their blooming teas. I have to say these blooming teas are quite impressive. They come in a bundled ball form and once you steep them, they open up and bloom to be a bouquet of flowers in water. With three weeks since opening, the Amsterdam Tea Room is a promising addition to the downtown scene. As much as I am a huge coffee drinker, I have to give the love for tea too!
