'Tea Makes Us Better': Steepologie is a tea-lover's DREAM

We found THE new spot in Seattle to get the best of the best loose leaf tea! Not only is this a tea lovers paradise, there literally is something for everyone…even us coffee drinkers! Not into tea or coffee? Just come hang out at this gorgeous space filled with inventory galore, smell the variety of flavors while you host an event, or chat it up with the owners, husband and wife duo of 20 years, Joe and Andrea Raetzer.

Leaving their corporate jobs behind in New York, Andrea and Joe decided to bring their passion for tea to Seattle and we’re so glad they did! Motivated by their slogan, “Tea Makes Us Better,” it’s obvious that’s lived out within the four walls of this brand new hot spot, located on 4th Avenue.

With over 250+ custom teas and herbal blends, each one has it’s own sniffer jar, iomaking it possible to smell your way to your perfect blend.

For the caffeine addicts, try the following:

Drink “Need for Speed” or “Super Pekoe Strong.”

For fruity fun:

Try Grapa Delight” or “Hawaiian Lei.”

The best part of visiting the store is the friendly camaraderie between Joe, Andrea, and their customers. Over and over again, people will return saying how certain teas have changed their life for the better. One customer spent so much time there, she ended up quitting her job to come work for the power couple! You can now see Emily’s smiling face when you stop in to get a cup to go or figure out a new fav.
