Tea, in the Land of Coffee

Let’s face it, Costa Rica is known for its coffee.  And as I have discovered amidst my weekly trips to the grocery store, not known for its teas…at least the kind of teas that I love and appreciate…you know, a fine Green from China, a Rooibos from Vietnam, a Darjeeling from India…good, old fashioned, loose-leaf tea that warms the body and soul.

But today I found a gem, in the land of coffee.  A TEA SHOP.   Being the tea lover I am, I was ecstatic.

Tea Land was the gem I found amongst the outskirts of the city of San José.  The brightly colored walls were welcoming, the staff friendly, and the tea?  A golden morsel of deliciousness on my choosy taste buds.

Rooibos Tropical, Blueberry Yogurt, Masala Chai – those are the flavors that warmed my friends and my soul that day.  We will for sure be going back to this hidden gem in the land of coffee.  And if you, a tea drinkerever find yourself lost in the land of coffee, be sure and look for this hidden gem as well.
