Mad Hat Tea

"Mad Hat is an exclusively tea cafe.

Their tea menu has literally millions of selections all for about 2-3 bucks for an infuser full of tea (about 2-3 cups worth) Every tea they infuse, they also sell in bulk. (can be found at the Tacoma Food Co-Op as well) They craft all their blends in house and will sometimes custom blend you a tea for specific health or culinary reasons. A great wooden bar to sit at as well as random couches and seats from automobiles to cozy couches to sit in. I go here to think, to read, to write. There is a strict no cell phone and laptop policy. We love Tobin and Maureen the owners and they love Tacoma, actively behind the scenes supporting young artists (and old.)"  (Excerpt from Favorite Tacoma Cafe's A Northwest Tradition by Benjamin Smith all images by Abby Hooyer 2013)
