The Tea Scene: Seven Cups

March 24 2009, 2:18 PM
Tea, given its health and wellness qualities, is one of the fastest growing sectors of the beverage industry, and the latest addition to the local tea market is Seven Cups, a traditional Chinese tea house on South Pearl Street. The nine-month-old shop serves up--and sells in bulk--organic and fair-trade Chinese teas, like the wok-fired green tea Da Fo Long Jing and Black Tuocha, a compressed puer tea that is known for its detoxifying qualities. While the teas themselves are certainly worth the trip to Seven Cups, consider giving yourself extra time to sip a brew in the dining room. Amid the shop's authentic Chinese wooden tables and carvings, Denver feels miles away. 1882 S. Pearl St., 303-777-2877
