Shopping, Specialist food and drink Rush & Division
5 out of 5 stars
(1user review)

The card catalog-esque drawers in which TeaGschwender (a Gold Coast franchise of a popular German firm) keeps its high-end teas might put you in mind of a library, but there’s no need to keep quiet here. Get the well-informed employees talking and you’ll likely learn a thing or two. (On a recent visit, we got a quick primer on tea-world vocab like first flush and second flush.) Armed with your new knowledge, you’ll be ready to navigate the shop’s vast selection of traditional and herbal teas.

The world of speciality tea in an overseeable shop. The staff is very courteous, knowledgeable and very helpful. I got a chai to go before going on a stroll through Lincoln Park. Great "German" quality tea and also unique accessories. I love the stainless steel strainers and matcha whisk holders.
