No idea how I've missed this place on my many trips to C'ville, but glad I discovered it this time around. Nice mellow, cozy atmosphere. A great place to relax with a delicious cup of tea. I'll be back!

I ate here with my daughter, she's vegan and I'm vegetarian. We love tea, and the tea list here is incredible. My cup of perfectly brewed Moroccan Mint tea was delicious. My daughter had a green tea with a beachy name, and the salty essence in the taste was wonderful. She ordered the hummus platter and I had the dal... More

Staff always informative and helpful - lots of students young and old enjoying the fabulous food and teas from all over the world. Added bonus is the hookah room for those to enjoy the Middle East habit

A nice, restorative escape from the crowd on Main St., Twisted Branch also serves a nice selection of light meals. Excellent choice for vegetarians. The peppermint shake is heavenly.

Been coming here for years and years, love the menu and teas. Food and speed of service inconsistent. Sometimes the sandwich bread is toasted, sometimes your food comes and it's a salad....sometimes you need to check if they lost your order. But it is good food in a laid back comfortable atmosphere, we go as much to hang out as... More

No namaste mood music withstanding and tufted pillow furnishings aside - all that was missing was incense burning and a rustafarian bongo player in the corner. My daughter goes there to study with a good cup of tea, so off we went to "chill". The place has a characteristic low key vibe to off set it's pretty good offering of... More
