TeaGshwender, which already has a Gold Coast shop, just opened a second location in Lincoln Park. Stocking 300 varieties of organic, loose-leaf teas, the bright store has indoor and outdoor seating.
A staff of verified tea-lovers can help recommend teas that fit particular tastes, and they offer samples and tastings on site. This location also stocks tea products including teapots, fine tableware, filter systems, and tea candles. (And, yes. We just wrote "tea" more times in the last five minutes than in the last five months.)
