Back in Jan. ’11 we we learned that Coffee and the Works would be closing after 31 years at 1627 Connecticut Ave, NW. I had heard some scuttlebutt that a high end tea shop would be moving into the space but to be honest I though someone was just messing with me. Turns out to be totally true. They plan on opening in Dupont in about a month give or take a few days. Annapolis based Capital Teas will be moving into the space. From their Web site:
“Welcome to Capital Teas, fifth generation fine tea merchants. Our family tradition in the tea trade began in the 1890’s when our great-great-grandfather, Francis Van Reyk, oversaw one of the first tea estates to be planted on Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). Today, maintaining a century-plus family tradition of excellence in tea, we source only the highest quality teas and infusions from around the world for your drinking pleasure.”
You can see all their teas here.
And last weekend I happened to walk by their recently opened new space at 1614-A Wisconsin Avenue, NW. If you like tea – you’re gonna love this place.
Lots more photos of the Georgetown space after the jump.
