An entire shop devoted to the fine art and ritual of the brewing of tea. The Tea Merchant, in Cresta. There are a few other branches around the country too. Coffee is all very well, but how many cups a day can you drink before you start hallucinating? Whereas you can drink green tea throughout the day without feeling any ill-effects. It’s a nice shop, and it smells of tea leaves of numerous flavours and fragrances. But more than that, it has an air of quietude and grace, which is not something you generally find at the malls at this time of year.
