We shopped and walked and wanted to warm up. Pippa's had received top reviews. We were helped with our tea selection by friendly servers at the front counter where we ordered. Mine was a citrus blend and my husband selected a chai blend. Served in the press with a time to make a perfect cup. Good service. Delicious and unique... More

I stopped in here to check out their tea selection one cold windy Saturday. They have a fairly comprehensive selection of green, black, and herbal teas available for purchase or to enjoy in the shop. I had a very nice green tea with citrus. They have a limited but good selection of food choices. The mozzarella with fresh basil was... More

I am a bit of tea "hobbyist" and always look for a nice tea shop with a good selection of unusual varieties in my travels. I happened upon Pippa's in a recent business trip to Port Townsend. The "Best of Seattle 2016" banner in the window was promising. It was a cold, windy day so perfect for a cuppa. We... More

The selection of teas is incredible. I selected coco po, a fermented tea that has strength blended with chocolate and coconut - amazing. The baked goods are very good.

If you are looking for a very classy, refined, yet casual place to converse with friends or clients, Pippa's is THE place. She offers a plethora of teas from throughout the world, along with homemade pastries, sandwiches and soups. On Saturday, you can enjoy a high tea service! An additional bonus the the private cozy, courtyard. i love Pippas!

This is a shop that I have overlooked over the last several months. It is immaculately clean, the tables and furnishings are comtemporary and art is appealing. Teas are for sale or you may buy brewed tea or snacks and enjoy at an indoor table or an outdoor terrace setting. It's easy to find on Water Street. Staff is very... More

Pippa's is not your usual old worldly tearoom where tea is poured from a china teapot and served on pretty bone china with dainty teacups. The decor is eclectic, more on the modern side, with light wooden tables and chairs, a central table with a variety of books and magazines for your perusal and interesting original works of art on...

What an unexpected 45 minute surprise! Really, I was just tired of bad restaurant iced tea and wanted some fresh brewed tea. But, I never could have scripted the adventure that ensued. My husband and I bellied up to the bar, so to speak, and ended up getting quite an education about tea. When my husband expressed that he was... More

First time we've ever had clotted cream, it was delicious. Pippa's could be the the only excuse that you need to come to Port Townsend. Bright and sunny Saturday we got to sit outside in the garden and enjoy our scones clotted cream and jam. We also enjoyed a flavorful iced tea on tap. A refill of iced tea was... More

We're lucky to have Pippa's tea at the place that we're staying (Ravenscroft Inn). Actually stopping by Pippa's for a quick mid-morning or mid-afternoon nosh is great as well. The tea is fantastic and their selection of small bites is great.
