Gold Winner World Tea House
Silver Winner DAVIDsTEA, Spring Garden Road
Bronze Winner Humani-T Cafe, South Park Street
Coast readers didn’t have to let this decision steep too long—World Tea House is the best cuppa in town for the third time running. After six years in business, Philip Holmans’ destination for organic, fair trade, small-batch loose teas continues to brew the good stuff downtown. This year saw some changes for the shop and cafe: While its sister location in Bedford bid adieu, its Argyle location upped its game with renos. But one thing remains—Holmans always has the kettle on for you.
