From the second you step foot into Teaspressa, you are taken by the radiant decor and naturalist/positive vibe. That being said, my experience at Teaspressa was amazing. Their exceptional and gracious staff make you feel right at home and assist you in choosing the right drink for your individual taste buds. What I did not realize at the time, was how all the different recipes and combinations would fascinate me so much.
