If you’re more of a tea person than a coffee person, you’ll feel right at home at Teaism in Old Town Alexandria. This charming tea shop has quite a few locations across the area, and each one abides by the characteristics of a traditional Asian tea house. Inside, Teaism is the picture of modern Zen design, with industrial metal lighting, sleek bamboo rods lining the walls, and colorful textiles creating a cozy seating area to sip a cup of green tea with some fellow tea lovers from The Kingsley.
There are always more than three dozen types of teas from which to choose, and you can enjoy your piping-hot tea with your meal or to take home with you. In addition to teas, Teaism serves a full menu of Asian-inspired cuisine, from Japanese Bento boxes to Thai noodle dishes and warm, soft naan bread from India. You’ll also find vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free dishes for those with restricted diets.
