Floating Leaves Tea

Floating Leaves Tea is a Seattle-based tea importer and retailer with a passion for Taiwanese, Japanese and Chinese tea, tea ware, and tea culture. We carry a small selection of teas, each one of which has in some way inspired us. Our teas are seasonal, unblended, and for the most part, single-estate teas.

We focus on selling loose-leaf teas and providing experiences that broaden your understanding of tea. Modeled after the teashops and tasting rooms of Shiuwen's native Taiwan, Floating Leaves Tea is an oasis of good tea and good humor.

Inside Floating Leaves you will always find friendly, knowledgeable staff who are looking forward to showing you new teas, and discovering which Taiwanese Oolongs are your favorites. During our tea tasting hours, advanced tea drinkers can try tasting teas in the traditional "bowl style", or, if you're newer to oolongs you will be introduced to Gong-Fu style tea sampling.
