Tea in D.C.

A friend and I met for tea at Teaism in DC. I thought we were just meeting for tea, but when I walked in, I saw heaping, steaming bowls of food and soup next to the expected pots of tea. Located just off Dupont Circle, Teaism claims to be a “tea house,” but it’s really something closer to an Asian fusion place that has a wide variety of tea.

My friend and I each got tea (me: Ginger Ginko, her: Assam) and a few small dishes, including the lentil soup ($3.75), the cucumber ginger salad ($2.50), and the sweet potato salad ($2.50). The  sweet potato salad, with a yummy miso dressing, was a particularly delicious treat. I’m going to try and see if I can replicate it at home.
