At first glance, Harney and Sons
looks like a mom n' pop establishment, a local tea retailer that's right at home on Main Street. But while this is definitely a local, family-owned business, it's also an international tea powerhouse. You'll find Harney's teas at Starbucks, Williams-Sonoma and many fine restaurants and hotels worldwide.
On your visit to Harney and Sons Tea Shop and Tasting Room, enjoy a free sample of one of the company's many exotic teas, shop for all kinds of products tea-related -- from kettles and cups to cookbooks and scone mix -- and have an affordable gourmet lunch in the cozy tea lounge.
