I tried this place out on Sunday. It's in the old Artevo gallery shop at 616 Fort in the Bay Centre.

Basically, you're confronted with a giant wall of tea buckets. You choose your blend and they steep if for you in a big glass mug.

Unless you know exactly what you want it's a bit intimidating choosing among the dozens of flavours. I recommend asking the clerk for a recommendation based on your preferences.

I didn't notice if they served drip coffee. If your tea break partner isn't in the mood for tea you'd best continue elsewhere.

I enjoyed the tea and the surroundings and would definitely recommend it but I'm not sure the maximum selection of tea and minimum selection of anything else is a long-term winner.

^ Thanks Holden, I like a nice cuppa, especially on a blustery fall day. There is/was another tea shop higher up on Fort where the selections were massive. You could smell the shop three doors away from the sidewalk.

This is the only place in town I've found decent Tie Guanyin tea but it seems overpriced at 4.25 a cup.
