Note: Due to a large condo construction project in downtown Bethesda through 2015, our shop has closed. Please continue to purchase our teas online and make sure you sign-up for our informative tea e-newsletter. We are considering future retail partnership opportunities and will keep you posted on any developments for a new store location.
Since our start in 2007 with a small tea counter at the Bethesda Farm Women's Cooperative Market, we've been Bethesda's favorite tea spot. In 2010 we were fortunate to be able to open our first full-service retail store and tea house on Bethesda Avenue. With a selection of over 100 teas, most organicly grown and a seating area, retail shop and tea tasting and blending room we are the largest tea shop in the Metro DC area.
At a time when many consumers are disappointed in how large corporations and retailers have become impersonal and offer inadequate products and services, we're a tea company run as a 21st century business. Be profitable, just enough. Support the local community we live in. Provide a place where people gather and the means to interact and give back (Zen Tara Tea and our customers have supported international tsunami relief efforts, local cancer patient support services, neighborhood green and recycling programs and other local business partners).
