Teaism 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. 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.
