Silk Road Aromatherapy & Tea Co.
Inspired by ancient Chinese tea traditions, this shop sells a wide variety of loose-leaf organic teas flavored with all-natural ingredients. Behind a brick-and-glass façade, the store contains dark hardwood floors, Asian-style lanterns, and white wooden shelves lined with fragrant teas and fill-it-yourself canisters. The inventory includes classic flavors—such as chamomile and chai—as well as more unusual options like Seamist, a blend of lemongrass, peppermint leaves, and seaweed. Also available are colorful ceramic teapots, flower-shaped strainers, and a collection of aromatherapy bath products. The store hosts occasional tea tastings, while the downstairs spa provides massages and facials.
