Fodor's Review

This informal teahouse stocks more than 50 imported teas (black, white, and green), but it also serves healthful and delicious Japanese, Indian, and Thai food as well as tea-friendly sweets like the locally famous chocolate salty oat cookies. You can mix small dishes—curry chicken salad, bright ginger-marinated cucumber—to create meals or snacks. There's also a grass-fed burger with Asian slaw or the winter-beating ochazuke, hot green tea poured over seasoned rice with a protein. The smaller Connecticut Avenue branch, closed on weekends, tucked neatly on a corner adjacent to Lafayette Park and the White House, is a perfect spot to grab lunch after touring the nation's power center. Another outpost, in Dupont Circle, caters to locals looking for a quick bite while tourists choose other brunch spots. Breakfast is served daily.
