Teaism Tea House

Photo from: www.teaism.com
On Saturday afternoon we stopped at Teaism in Penn Quarter for a late lunch.
Teaism Restaurant is a "walk up to the counter and place your order" Asian Tea House.
The Penn Quarter location is one of several in Washington, DC.
 Teaism Shops are located near each restaurant/tea house.
The menu indicated Traditional Menu or Asian Menu afternoon tea is available every day 2:30 - 5:30.
We chose the Traditional Afternoon Tea served on two-tier servers.

 The traditional menu included:
Two Cucumber Tea Sandwiches
Two Salmon Tea Sandwiches
Ginger Scone with Marmalade
Shortbread Cookies
Lemon Curd Tarts
Chocolate Truffles
(however, I believe these may have been Mochi, a Japanese Sweet Bean Confection)


 And, a pot of tea from a selection of Black Oolong, Green, White and Tisanes.
Teaism was extremely busy on Saturday afternoon.
It was an interesting experience, much different from the English-style, relaxed, quiet
afternoon tea.  The tea was perfectly brewed and the food was tasty.
It was a fun and memorable tea/lunch for our family
while out touring museums in the Penn Quarter area in Washington, DC.

Hi Linda,

So glad you were able to go to Teaism. Isn't it a unique tea shop? When we visit DC, we love to stop for a cup of tea and their special salty oat cookies. The Green Tea Soup called Ochazuke is excellent. They have so many interesting things on the menu.

How fun to visit an Asian Tea House. So glad you shared the experience with us.

This looks like a tearoom I would enjoy. I guess I am getting use to more Asian style tearooms, as we don't have many British ones around.

This was on my list of places to visit when we go to D.C. Thanks to your review, I'll know what to expect!
