    55555 by Michelle O.

  • Jecee M.Teaism is tops when in the district. Try the miso sweet potatoes with bento box for lunch.

    55555 by Jecee M.

  • Cameron M.Worst mango lassi I've ever had! It's like they used ice instead of yogurt. Had much better seitan at the Teaism near DuPont Circle.

    33333 by Cameron M.

  • sam h.LOVE this spot! The food is good too!

    55555 by sam h.

  • Winnie TamThe Zhenzhou pearl tea is a tad too sweet, just a warning

    55555 by Winnie Tam

  • Melissa L.Was excited about the French toast until I opened the to go container. Edges were burned and was soggy from all the apples and juice underneath. Apples are great touch but package them separately.

    22222 by Melissa L.

  • Julia P.French toast was vey good. No need for syrup.

    33333 by Julia P.

    33333 by Brian P.

  • Abi O.The Moroccan mint tea is very good but not as sweet as a real Moroccan tea! It's lightly sweetened like it says. The Chai shake is my favorite.

    55555 by Abi O.

  • Rebecca M.The spinach curry is fantastic. Plus, don't forget to get an order of the the ginger scones!

    55555 by Rebecca M.

    33333 by Amanda F.

  • Jaime W.Was talked into the Bison burger, and it was delish...

    55555 by Jaime W.

  • Tobin C.Tuna bento box, or the plum ochazuke. And a salty oat cookie of course.

    55555 by Tobin C.

  • Brian H.Scones and two giant mugs of tea for $10. Not bad. Charging me 50 cents for two tiny packets of jam because they only gave us one for the whole plate of scones...priceless!

    22222 by Brian H.

  • David K.Maybe they're going downhill, too? When I'm expecting a pile of mixed fruit, don't just give me three little pieces of honeydew -- not on a $10.75 breakfast...

    22222 by David K.

  • Ananda L.Was at Teaism last week & hosted the DC She Writers Meet Up. Enjoyed the seaweed salad and sweet potato salad. Yummy!

    55555 by Ananda L.

  • JackieTry the Tofu Noodle Salad - Good kick to it from chilies. Cold salad, which means tofu is cold, but delicious. (via @Foodspotting)

    55555 by Jackie

    33333 by Sarah J.

    55555 by Jon-Carlo C.

  • Jen K.Really decent breakfast for only $10. The cilantro eggs are always tasty and the naan warm. Big mug of tea and you are fueled for your morning.

    55555 by Jen K.

  • Ebony A.Try the Salty Oak Cookie!

    55555 by Ebony A.

  • Aron L.Come downstairs to say hello to, and contemplate, their beautiful koi!

    55555 by Aron L.

    55555 by Kelly B.

  • kazahelGreat place if it's not too busy--the veggie bento box is excellent, particularly when coupled with Japanese sweet green tea (which you can buy the mix for in the shop next door). Highly recommended.

    55555 by A Cup O' Tea T

  • April RVeggie bento box was good (especially the rice), but sauteed (I guess) veggies were soggy & cold (very unpleasant). Substituted tofu 4 xtra edamame. Iced Morroccan mint tea was good w/ free refills.

    33333 by April R

    55555 by Linda C

  • Jeff H.If you're a loose tea person, this is a great spot. And if you like oolong, you have to try the Baozhong - amazing. They have tea sets, strainers, and other neat tea related things as well.

    55555 by Jeff H.

  • Jim M.Sunday brunch here is a ritual. The scrambled eggs & salmon is the usual for me. For cold beverages try any of the Lassi drinks or the Japanese sweet green tea.
