Time for Tea!

I saw this teashop mentioned in Lukuhoukka's blog, and immediately googled it. They have a tearoom and two shops in Helsinki (and one is Saint Petersburg, apparently), but lucky for me, there's also a webshop. They sell tea by the ounce (28g), so it's easy to experiment; if you don't like the blend, you're not stuck with a huge bag of the stuff. 

The order arrived in a few days in these wonderfully crinkly brown paper bags. I loved their custom envelope, too. The teas also have the water temperature and steep time written on the bags, which is nice. And they serve afternoon tea at the tearooms. Yay, scones! I'll have to check out the shop when I'm next in Helsinki. 

Here are the addresses and opening times for the shops, if you're in the neighbourhood:
