T Salon on Melrose Ave.
The newly opened T Salon sits on the corner of Melrose and La Brea, next to M Cafe. The store offers 200+ varieties of loose tea leafs, tea-related merchandise, full food bar, indoor & outdoor seating. There’s 20 iced teas on tap and the welcoming owner Miriam Novalle offered samples galore: teas, scones, tarts, green juices. T Salon is eco-conscious, sustainably designed. To encourage frequent patrons to conserve on paper cups, they sell corn to-go mugs for $15 and from then on anytime you bring in the mug, a regularly $4 tea becomes $2. Nice.

The food bar is yummy and healthy. The grilled salmon I had for lunch was tender and the accompanying salad with the tea dressing was delish. I also loved the mandarin orange chocolate tart for dessert. Check this new place out!
