We love Cha Guan. We found them about 4 years ago, and have ben regulars ever since. I would love to go there more often. We love the bubble tea! Kelly makes my daughter's noodles just the way she likes them, slightly off the menu description. My son has liked everything he has tried. I love their food and they... More

This shop has come a long way. They have so many teas to choose from! The owner is so friendly and it's great that she's doing other things to attract people to her shop -- I saw that she had tea tasting parties, tai chi, and also time to learn Chinese!

We were excited to try the Dim Sum at the Tea shop after hearing great things about it. The dim sum is not very good but the shop itself is an adorable place for a cup of tea. They have 100's of different types of tea. The owners were really nice and friendly.

I love going into this tea shop when I travel to La Crosse (I visited 3 times in 4 days). There is an amazing variety of tea and the owner is great at recommending teas if you are looking at it for health reasons. The owner is very sweet and kind. If you order a pot of tea, she will... More

They have delicious soups! The service is great. I don't like tea very much but they will help to pick some out and help you learn to like it.

I love this place. It's tucked away inside a building in downtown La Crosse. The lady who runs it is very nice. There's just about any kind of tea here you can think of. She also makes DELICIOUS bubble tea. There's a few tables to sit and drink your tea. She sells beautiful tea sets for a good price based... More

We were psyched to find a place that offered dim sum any day of the week--should have known better. The buns and dumplings we got were instantly recognizeable as the same ones we've bought from the freezer section of our local Asian market. I guess they throw them in the steamer. The selection of teas was great, though.

This is a small, newly opened resto. Owner operated. It's a little difficult to find as it's inside a former old department store in the heart of downtown La Crosse. It has no exterior signage only a couple of small posters. The main business in the building is Three Rivers Outdoors & you have to go thru there to find it off to the side. They have a great selection of hot tea and delicious iced tea. They feature daily specials and are health conscious. The lady is very polite, friendly, and helpful. Budget prices. Quality of the food is excellent and is more traditional Chinese than the Americanized Chinese that is prevalent. I've been there two days in a row and will return again tomorrow. They also have some deserts and games for kids to play. I think they must have about 50 kinds of tea, including black, flavored black, green and flavored green, oolong, white, flavored white, puerh, rooibos, & etc.
