User Reviews and comments on The Tea Emporium

From: Brian J. on Jun-27-2003
What a great concept! The most well designed and soothing tea store I have been in since my time in Japan. The tea selection is unbelievable and unique and the staff is full of knowledge without being overwhelming. Charming!

My husband and I had the opportunity to discover the Tea Emporium on a trip to Toronto this past fall. The teas were wonderful and the fact that we can continue to purchase their teas online is an added benefit. The Tea Emporium is a wonderful store and should be visited.

A fabulous facility where delectable taste experiences are just waiting to be discivered. Try the Royal Benghal Tiger.

I was not exactly impressed with the selection.

From: K. Mercer on May-17-2005
Not impressed with the selection?? It's the largest selection in the city - over 120 - not quite sure what 'Anonymous' was looking for but I find the selection outstanding and always up to date.

The selection is not half as great as another tea store I have visited (the House of Tea on Yonge St).

(Continued) The house of tea has over 200!!!!

A very nice shop with a respectable 120 kinds of tea, enough to get you started...prices are compatible to the other high end tea shop. (Except for the House of Tea, which is more pricey.) The store on Eglinton is very nicely done, with a tea lounge.

The store on Eglinton is very nicely done, with a tea lounge. Who cares if they have 500 teas!! I am sure nobody is going to taste all of them!

A nice store with an emphasis Black teas and decent selection of green and oolongs. Prices are comparable to many "physical" North American tea stores though very pricy when compared online vendors. Knowledgeble and helpful staff for those needing a guide into loose leaf teas. Dragon pearls and "blooming" teas are pricy compared to that sold in the Chinatowns.

Just had a macaron - worst I ever had, totally hard and dry. Great teas, but avoid macarons...

From: Stella on Feb-11-2009
I just had some fantastic milk Oolong from there! The staff were also very patient and knowledgeable. And as for the prior comment about a non-impressive selection... I've never had a sub-par cup of tea from the tea emporium, which is something I cannot say for the other tea houses I've been to in toronto (say tea, pippins, tealish, house of tea, teaopia)

I agree with Stella. New tea shops popping up in Toronto serve a greater variety of teas than the Tea Emporium. However, the owners of the Tea Emporium seem to care about the quality of the tea that they get and they sell only the best. It shows! I love the selection at the Tea Emporium. What I love more is the service. After going to David's Tea, I went to the Tea Emporium and the staff knew a hell of a lot about their teas (which is not what I can say about David's tea...I just wrote a frustrating review about them 5 minutes ago...ugh). Great store, great service, good prices. I went to the First Canadian Place location btw and came away with the Milk Oolong and a Rooibos Provence. I want to check out the store located on Eglinton...some day :)

I was recently at their Forest Hill location and had a pot of tea and a lime tart in their sit-down section. The tea was good but the tart was beyond stale. The pastry crust was rock hard and cracked and the custard was also cracked and dry, basically inedible. I left it nearly untouched so I hope that sends a message to the Tea Emporium. I'll never go back again, not even for tea. There are other places in the city where you can have a great pot of tea and FRESH pastries for the same price!
