Overall
The best tea house in D.C.

I think there are people who enjoy tea from time to time, don't mind it when they are sick, and occasionally have it when it rains. Then there are people who love tea. Some might say these folks are tea snobs, but I think they are just enthusiastic about an amazing beverage. Yeah, maybe I fall into the latter category.

Ching Ching Cha will make a tea lover out of just about anyone. Going for a cup of tea here becomes an event. The selection is great, from upscale yet conventional teas, to blossoming jasmine teas (tea that flowers -literally- as it steeps), to rare or seldom found varieties.

The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Often, after ordering one type of tea or another, they will ask, ""do you know how to prepare this tea?"" Ching Ching Cha shows you the process of tea, how certain varieties are best served, kept warm, and enjoyed, and how to appreciate the taste, color, and aroma of tea.

Patrons can either sit on pillows, with shoes off, or at tables. The food is edible, but not amazing; the steamed dumplings are not bad. At the shop you can buy different varieties of tea, books about tea, and various tea accoutrements.

This is not a cafe. If you are looking for some hot water with a bag of Lipton you will save yourself some time and money by going elsewhere. Ching Ching Cha is one of the more unique places in Georgetown and is great for relaxing, refreshing, and taking in the moment with a good cup of tea. Whether you occasionally have a cuppa or are the type to only drink loose leaf, Ching Ching Cha is a great break from the norm.
