The Stash Tea store is such a find! And up until recently I had no idea it existed ... ! They have so many loose leaf teas it boggles and the sales staff is really relaxed and approachable. It's a great place to be a novice. Supposedly, they have tea tastings and classes too? I've not been to those, but I plan on it!
Pros: great parking, amazing selection, super nice staff
Cons: I wish they were closer to to where I live!
