Being the nephew of the owner, it is difficult to remain objective when writing a review of Buffalo’s own TeaLeafs. I can, however tell you that I have watched Syd (TeaLeafs Owner) work closely on projects over the past 20 some-odd years with dedication and perseverance, but never have seen my Aunt Syd as passionately enthusiastic to bring the best teas from all over the world to the pallets of the Buffalo tea consumer. I have been a coffee drinker for as long as I can remember and questioned my interest in trying something new. My first time in TeaLeafs, I was attempting to overcome one of Buffalo’s favorite gifts: the common cold, when my aunt gave me a cup of Sunshine Lemon. This was my first “true” tea tasting and I have never looked back! The Sunshine Lemon gave my throat a break from being sore, and gave me a natural energy that I have certainly been lacking. I was instantly addicted! I have now spread the word of TeaLeafs to everyone who questions the delicious aroma of fresh tea steeping from my travel mug where ever I go. If you have never experienced real tea, stop into TeaLeafs ASAP, and change the way you treat your pallet, and your body! You will have absolutely no reason NOT to return to try as many teas as possible! Keep it up Aunt Syd!! I’m a customer for life!
As to you being one of my favorite nephews, I appreciate your totally unbiased review of TeaLeafs! I am so glad that you have tried and subsequently realized the benefits of drinking good tea. You always "make my day" when you visit and I love that you are helping your body in a good, clean, delicious manner. Thanks Jake for the review. I love you.
An oasis in a hectic world. It is always a pleasure to stop in and enjoy the teas. It is a reminder of how stores should treat their customers. The owner is always gracious and the store and atmosphere is always inviting. Although you're moving, your customers will surely follow.
I am a (sort of) coffee convert. Syd never yells at me when I fall off the "tea wagon" and stop for coffee on my many drives into Buffalo. :) I love the teas and other items that Syd has in her store! TeaLeafs is not a place that you can get into and out of quickly as there is always something to look at, or new teas to smell... and great conversation! Can't wait until I retire and can hang out there more!
Eileen, It has been a sincere pleasure introducing you to tea.....and I have been known to scold you alittle when you fall off the "tea wagon"!!!! Love our conversations and knowing that we have become friends in the process! Looking forward to your retirement!
A wonderful hideaway with a huge selection of tea and accessories, I can't stay away! Not only is the shop a wonderful place to escape or to find a special gift, the thing that impresses me the most is the knowledge Syd shares with her customers. I am hooked on these healthful and wonderful teas and this beautiful shop! Skip Starbucks and noisy, greasy doughnut shops - instead take a break and go to TeaLeafs for a truly have a wonderful experience.
TeaLeafs is a little piece of heaven. If you haven't had the fortune to discover this little gem - treat yourself, soon! A symphony of scents will inspire you to explore the vast offerings of red, white, black, green, oolong, herb and fruit teas. Syd and her expert staff will teach you the secrets to brewing the perfect cup. Truly one of my favorite get aways!
I live in Niagara County but always make a special stop at TeaLeafs whenever I am in the area. Sydney is a pleasure to visit with and always helps me pick out wonderful tea for myself and gifts for others. A great place to shop and wonderful service! stop in soon and get some Hot Cinnamon Spice tea.. my favorite. Ginny from Porter
Thank you so much Ginny for taking the time to post a great review of TeaLeafs. Its always so nice seeing you and I am so glad you are enjoying your teas. And the Hot Cinnamon Spice is perfect for Buffalo's fall and winter weather!
TeaLeafs is a one-of-a-kind gem in western New York. If you’ve never experienced full-leaf teas and brewed your own, you’ll never go back to run-of-the-mill bag tea again once you’ve tried any of TeaLeafs’ fine selection. Syd’s selection of all kinds of tea — black, green, red, white, herbal, chai — has something for everyone. Syd and her staff can help you select the right tea(s) to suit your tastes, and along with the teas, accessories are available that will help you brew the perfect cup or pot of tea. The holiday season is right around the corner — it’s never to early to start your shopping, and TeaLeafs is a great place to shop!
If you have not been to this store you don't know what you are missing. This is the best tea store in town. I was never a big tea drinker until tried some of the wonderful teas at TeaLeafs. Plus the service you get in the store is excellent from a very knowledgable staff. My favorite place to go get tea and relax.
Such a lovely store filled with wonderful, healthful options. The owner is so helpful and knowledgable. She always remembers me and my husband and our preferences. Always new, exciting product coming in. Lovely assortment of gift items. I'm in love!
I've been shopping at TeaLeafs since Sydney opened the store. The quality of the tea is exceptional and Sydney is so helpful and knowledgeable. Syd makes you feel at home with her kindness and willingness to stuff you with all sorts of goodies and amazing teas. She is like family to me and my girls. Best tea store I've ever been in.
Tea Leafs is an amazing spot for tea! My husband and I frequent Tea Leafs twice a week on our lunch break, and look forward to both a cup of tea and the warm hospitality provided by Sydney (& Riley!). Sydney provides expert recommendations, and has a superb knowledge of tea and tea products! I have purchased the tea in bulk to enjoy every morning as I'm now happily addicted to the Hot Cinnamon black tea. Visiting Tea Leafs is one of the highlights of the week for both my husband and I. There's also a ton of great tea products that would make for excellent gifts.
Amber, Riley and I look forward to you and Brad's visits every week. Its been wonderful getting to know you and helping you pick out the right teas for you. Thank you for taking the time to post the great review. I appreciate it!
Sydney has one of the nicest tea boutiques. She has the most contagious and wonderful bubbly personalities of anyone I know.
I met her when I was visiting a friend and just love her shop and the amazing number of teas and other goodies she offers. Only 1 negative I can come up with is.....I need to move her to Texas! Good for me she does ship!!
Syd and TeaLeafs are awesome. Not only does she carry a large selection of loose leaf teas, she's always bringing in something new. It may be new teas, pots, mugs or other accessories. You can rest assured it's all great quality! Thanks for providing great products!
This is a great shop. We are so lucky to have it in Williamsville. TeaLeafs has everything a tea lover could possibly want. It is also a great place to pick up special gifts. Teapots, tea cups, and of course great tea!
