I am a student, studying nearly every day, and I don't drink coffee, but I love tea. I live in Capitol Hill and thought I hit the jackpot when I found Remedy Teas. Lots of teas to choose from, good sandwiches and snacks. I thought this place would be my new home for studying.

Until I realized they only allow ONE refill on your pot of tea. They claim it is their policy to preserve the quality of the tea, but after a few visits I realized it's also a money making scheme to get you out and the next customer in. Yes, I admit I am not a purist and don't need new tea leaves every single steep, but I am also a student and don't have money to be constantly buying a new $5 pot of tea. I thought maybe my complaint was unfounded until I realized that nearly everywhere offers free refills on drip coffee.

Sad to say, Remedy Teas seems to have no interest in building relationships with those of us whose wallets are a little tighter.

Too bad.
