Capital Teas, Washington, DC

An early spring visit to Washington, DC included a stop at the trendy Capital Teas located in Dupont Circle. Billed as Fifth Generation Fine Tea Merchants, they have 6 different locations (MD, VA, DC) and promise 2 new boutiques will open soon.
They offer over 200 types of teas and infusions and encourage you to smell the teas. This wall full of their tea offerings lines one side of the long narrow boutique.



Additional tea wares and accoutrements can be found artfully displayed in the shop.



Susanna found a tropical herbal tisane to purchase - the fragrance immediately transported her to a faraway island. The teas are packaged in a very informative black tin that includes all the necessary information to properly brew whatever tea you have selected.
The staff is happy to offer any assistance or answer any questions you might have. This was a fun stop on our adventure to DC.

I have ordered some of their teas before and was impressed with not only the taste but also their great customer service! Love the tin -- great to see that much info on back. Thanks for taking us on a tour of an actual shop, as I had been wondering!

What a fun tea shop to visit. Definitely a lot of teas on that wall to smell! Thanks for sharing your visit with us! Is driving on Dupont Circle as bad as it's rumored to be?
