Butterfly Herbs

Butterfly Herbs is the place of a tea-lover’s dream. The tall shelves look like something out of an ancient herb shop hidden in the thick of Hong Kong. Scrawled on the jars of loose leaf are names like “Dragon Pearl” and “Papaya Mint,” “Mocha Black Raspberry” and “Evening in Missoula.” In the back, a cafe serves cups or pots of tea to an eclectic crowd of regulars—artists, teachers, nonprofit workers, college kids—as well as newcomers. Meanwhile, the smell of tea spice wafts throughout the retail area, where shoppers can peruse elegant tea paraphernalia, including retro tins and tiny ceramic sets.
