Stopped by to have coffee and home made goodies. There are all kinds of great gifts, clothes, etc. to see. Sally makes sure you have a friendly and informative visit. You will definitely want to go back - I did.

The Tea Leaf is a hidden gem on Moody Street in Waltham. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside it's like stepping into your grandma's house, cozy and cluttered in just the right way. The full tea is delicious and very filling....More

Hi, I have always had the Low Tea which includes a lot more than Light Tea and it's been really inexpensive (I think around $20). You can call the owner, she is so nice, and ask her the exact price: 781-891-1900
