I was dying for a good cup of green tea and this little Japanese tearoom was just perfect. I had a pot of jasmine green tea and a bowl of oatmeal chock full of nuts and dried fruit, just perfect for a cold morning.

Wow! Wish we had discovered this sooner! The teas are fantastic. The food was great. Ginger in scrambled eggs- who knew how great it tastes??!! The atmosphere is fantastic- the place looks like it's straight of Paris. Loved the jazz music. Can't wait to go back!

I had the chilled noodles with beef which is the cream take of cold noodles. The slices of beef were a bit dry however, I did go there at the end of the day for dinner.

Cool place, great tea options, I highly recommend the Japanese green tea (cold drink). They also have salty oatcakes that are a mix of sweet and savory, and they are great. Only downside is the somewhat limited seating for the crowd size that is often there in the afternoon.

The food is delicious and the staff is very nice. Selecting from the variety of tea is a great addition to the meals. I try to go there at least once a week because of the taste and quality of the food and the friendly staff. It's also a very nice location.

We ate breakfast here a couple of times during our trip. Their chai is delicious, and the upstairs eating room is a quiet hideaway--good food and good feel to start the day.

Bustling counter well past lunch time. Friendly service with enticing scents floating from the kitchen. Between the three of us had Persian cucumbers, curry chicken, and tacos. All of felt we has done something good for our bodies and our appetites by eating with them.

Teaism is a local group of restaurants with three locations in DC. We're devoted to serving top quality loose leaf tea and healthy, cooked-from-scratch food. In a casual and funky setting, we are open through the day for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. A refuge for regulars and tourists alike, the restaurant features bento boxes, curries, sandwiches and salads. We're going "clean" eliminating high-fructose corn syrup, trans fats, antibiotics and GMOs and adding as much local and organic as possible. Be sure to enjoy one of our world famous Salty Oat Cookies!
