This is not your typical tea house. In place of antique teapots, you'll find scientific, tablet-controlled glass crucibles that steep tea to the ideal temperature and strength. The white, gallery-like space by Arcanum Architecture is stark and sleek, sparingly accented with raw wood and concrete detailing. The bar offers an array of direct-import teas, including matcha and herbal blends, but the specialty here is the chai, brewed in a copper urn and served in weighty porcelain teacups by Oakland ceramicist Atelier Dion. Whatever you get, pair your blend with a sweet or savory scone.
