The Numi Tea Garden is not a garden but a tranquil tearoom in East Oakland’s warehouse district. Customers seek and find sanctuary here, a Zen haven where skylights, gently gurgling fountains, and graceful plants are integral to the aesthetics of steeping and pouring fragrant tea. The colors, textures, and scent of teas inspire visitors to return and sample different varieties, though given the selection, it might take years to try all of them. Most teas are organic, as are the menu items, which include a nice array of savory and sweet snacks, such as green tea pumpkin seeds, nut and dried fruit plates, French and Italian cheese plates, pizza, and chocolate scones. Frugal guests who expect to enjoy their pot of tea for same price as a Lipton may complain but will no doubt recover their equanimity after loading up on the free samples of Numi tea. Free wi-fi. A fine place to read in peace.

Hours: Tue.-Sat.: 11:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m., though sometimes closed unexpectedly, so you might want to call beforehand.
