Tea at This House of Books
In addtion to books and games, we have sold tea from the first day we opened. Why tea? Look around: there are coffee shops on every corner but there are few dedicated tea shops in town. For us, tea is sold strictly as a luxury beverage. Of the luxuries in life, tea is among the most affordable. How many other world-class food or beverage items can you purchase in satisfying quantities for just a few dollars?
Our tea blender is Gustavo Belotta, who has a genius for coming up with beverages people like. Some blends are custom made for special events, some are available only for a season or for a month, and a few enter the menu as year-round favorites. The menu changes constantly. Currently, we feature approximately 100 different teas, tea blends, and tisanes. We sell straight tea and we sell flavored tea.
