“Great setup to inspect loose leaf teas”

Shab Row Tea Emporium
Ranked #3 of 11 Coffee & Tea in Frederick
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 September 2016

So adorable! They have two large pull-out trays full of loose-leaf tea samples in large corked "test tubes." The tubes are all organized by type (black, green, herbal, etc), and you can smell and inspect to your heart's content. The price per ounce is also on each tube - prices range from less than $3/oz to close to $20/oz for the very rare white teas, but most teas are about $3-$4/oz (and you can usually make about 7 cups of tea/oz).

When you've made your selections, the gals will measure out the tea from large tins. They also sell new and vintage tea sets, local honey, and various tea accessories (strainers, etc). They also have a tea room upstairs and outside, but I haven't eaten there in person yet. I'll definitely be back the next time I'm in Frederick.

The shab row tea emporium is a cute little shop boasting a lot of options! When you head into the back you will find dozens of test tubes on a rack holding many different kinds of tea broken down into different varieties. It was the most unique set-up that I have seen. Along the other wall there are larger volumes of bulk teas. You can also find everything else you need to steep the perfect cup of tea, including timers, honey, cups, bags, and much more. If you venture upstairs or out back there are places to sip the teas that you have chosen.

We stopped in while walking through Shab Row. There's a great variety of loose teas. In addition there's a beautiful upstairs room to sample your tea selection. Very friendly customer service also!!!

We went here on our last trip to Frederick. They having a huge variety of loose teas you can buy it by the cup or get a larger amount to take home. The staff are knowledgeable and can help you find the flavor you are looking for. They have a quaint sitting room upstairs and seating outside if its nice. Also a nice selection of vintage tea pots and hand made candles.

What fun this store is! Lots of teas you can smell and sample. The clerks are all very astute about tea and are very helpful. A huge selection with lots of organic choices, a place you definitely should stop and see for yourself.
