Photo Gallery | PHOTOS: Asian-inspired Tea House Opens in VA

Asian-inspired tea house, Teaism, has been satisfying locals and tourists at three D.C. locations since 1996, and recently opened their first restaurant in Virginia.

Teaism, which is located at 682 North St. Asaph Street, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with a menu that offers healthy, well-balanced, affordable meals made from scratch with natural, and organic ingredients.  

“We are thrilled to open in Alexandria. Teaism fills an interesting niche. We cook from scratch with wholesome ingredients at affordable prices in a quick service format, but with an upscale environment,” says Teaism Co-Owner, Linda Neumann.

Chef Alison Swope has introduced an exciting new menu to this locally-owned restaurant featuring Okonomiyaki, which is a kind of Japanese-style pancake or pizza, and buckwheat and hempseed pancakes. (Yum!)

“We are kind of tucked away on St. Asaph Street, but are right by the Trader Joe's with free garage parking,” says Neumann. She went on to say  “This is the first Teaism to have a bar, and we are debuting some new cocktails including the Yazi Chili Tonic and the Ginger Bullet.”

Love the ample seating; Bamboo and timber screened walls, as well as the vibe that Teaism’s Alexandria location boasts.

Definitely a place you should try if you’re looking for a laid-back environment with a large selection of loose-leaf teas from all over Asia, and out-of-this-world Salty Oat Cookies.

Teaism in Alexandria will be giving away complimentary samplings of their bar food menu at a beer tasting with Peak Organic Brewing Company on Thursday, June 7th. The event runs from 5 to 8 p.m., so stop by and check out the new space!
