I was dying for a good cup of green tea and this little Japanese tearoom was just perfect. I had a pot of jasmine green tea and a bowl of oatmeal chock full of nuts and dried fruit, just perfect for a cold morning.

Teaism is a local group of restaurants with three locations in DC. We're devoted to serving top quality loose leaf tea and healthy, cooked-from-scratch food. In a casual and funky setting, we are open through the day for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. A refuge for regulars and tourists alike, the restaurant features bento boxes, curries, sandwiches and salads. We're going "clean" eliminating high-fructose corn syrup, trans fats, antibiotics and GMOs and adding as much local and organic as possible. Be sure to enjoy one of our world famous Salty Oat Cookies!
