    .

    Yesterday, I made the mistake of going to Everything Tea instead of Kuan Yin in Wallingford. When I first arrived, there was no one else in the store. As I was browsing, another woman came to the store. The owner (the only person working yesterday), took her time assisting the other customer, which was fine. It was clear they knew each other very well, plus the owner is an elderly woman who moves a bit slow. After 10 minutes or so, she was ready to assist me. We spent a few minutes talking about the different teas she offered. This was the only positive aspect of my experience. The owner is very knowledgeable about teas and answered my questions thoroughly. While she was ringing up my purchase, I asked her if there were any vegan friendly restaurants within walking distance of her store. This is where things began to go south. She told me about a place directly across the street, and then launched into an uncomfortably long monologue about her family's eating habits, her son who has worn out his welcome because he was only supposed to stay a few months and now she wants him out, how her 7 year old relative, and 3 year old relative died from allergies, and various other topics I can't quite remember. To drive home how excessive her rambling was, she actually lost her voice. The first time her voice cracked, I asked her if she was ok. I worried she had something that might be catching as she was coughing into her sleeve too. She told me that she loses her voice if she talks for a long time. I gently told her she didn't need to talk anymore (I was getting somewhat antsy as I didn't want to be in there all day), but she said, "That's ok." and kept right on gabbing away. I chalked this up to her being an old lady who was probably lonely, so I remained patient. When she finally finished totaling my bill, I handed her my husband's debit card which she ran as credit. I signed my name to the slip. She compared the signature against the slip then declared, "Well these signatures don't match". Of course they don't match. My husband has a very male first name. I told her it's my husband's card. Her demeanor immediately went from pleasant to downright nasty. She told me I need to get my own card. I was bewildered at the tone the owner took with me. I told her I've been using my husband's card for the past year and a half. It's never been a problem before. She asked me how is she supposed to know it's my husband's card, that I could be lying. I offered for her to call him as well as show her our auto insurance card which has both our names on it. She didn't take me up on either offer. Instead, she claimed he could deny the purchase telling the credit card company he never gave me permission to use his card. I told her that is fine then, just void the purchase (no product is worth this kind of hassle). She threw up her hands and said, (and I quote) "No no, it's ok. I'll take it." Once she decided to accept it, her condescending tone should have ended, but it didn't. She told me several more times I needed to get my own card. She continued ranting about how the credit card company might not pay it because of the signature issue. I told her she could just run it on debit, that it would make all her concern go away if I just used a pin as that required no signature. She responded with, "No, it needs a signature." I stared at her for a few seconds, not knowing how to respond to such an asinine statement. She takes my husband's card, puts it up to my face, and points out that it is a debit card, but she can run it as a credit card if she wants to. I told her again, if she ran it as debit, she wouldn't have to worry about the credit card company not paying it. Finally, she admitted she can't run it as debit, because she doesn't have a pin pad. Between her rantings, other customers had entered the store. In order to justify her disgusting behavior, she told me an intellectually insulting story about the post office worker in town, whom she's known for years, always compares her signature to her signed card. She takes one final parting shot as I'm headed to the door loudly stating, "Well I guess I need to write HUSBAND'S CARD on this receipt." I told my husband what happened when I got home. He was not happy with the treatment I received. Today, we went back to the store to return the tea. The owner was not there. The young lady working the counter called the owner after we told her what happened. It turns out they have a policy about no returns on tea. When my husband attempted to talk to this owner on the phone, she launched into a relentless diatribe, telling him I shouldn't be using his card. We left the tea at the store. In hindsight, I should have demanded, not offered, to void the transaction. It is not the owner's job to tell me what I need to do. If she wasn't comfortable with the card, she could have politely declined. She chose to accept it with attitude.

    I went to this shop to look for a steeper for my loose tea leaves and I couldn't believe how many different kinds of teas they have. The price is a little steep but if you like to drinks a certain kind it is worth it!

    This place has a nice variety of teas, including more expensive, higher caliber green teas from china. Also includes unusual flavored teas, and those that sound like ice cream flavors like vanilla cherry tea, etc. Good assortment of various tea pots and cups in lots of styles.

    In an age where theres a Starbucks on every corner offering 3,943,098 different varieties of coffee but only three or four flavors of tea, its nice to know that someone out there hasnt forgotten about those of us who dont indulge in a non-fat double latte hold the whip. This cute little place both sells and serves tea, and lots of it. I stock up on The Mighty Leaf brand, which I cannot find anywhere else. I love the huge variety of loose leaf teas here and the great smell of citrus-something that greets me upon entering. There are bakery items available but no real menu. Its a nice place to sit and drink a cup of tea, while feeling superior that you're not waiting in line at the Starbucks around the corner.
