Tea Leaves is a fascinating specialty tea Shop. In addition to their comprehensive range of teas from around the world, they also sell a range of novelty and collectible tea pots and tea making accoutrements. I have also used their excellent on-line service. We'll worth a visit.

A quick stop here this afternoon en route to Mount Dandenong. Tea Leaves is a quaint little shop in Sassafras selling a range of teas, tea pots, mugs, etc. Worth a visit even if, like me, you are not a "Tea Person".....

This little shop did have over 300 kids of teas jam packed in the shelves after shelves. Loose leaf teas are packed in small, medium, large sizes and you can find just about any kind of tea you have in mind. Picked up some Australia grown green teas from here. They also carry hundreds of tea pots and mugs, all... More

This a great store with lots of quirky and practical tea (& coffee) paraphernalia. They also have a range of teas commissioned by a nautropath you brew for different 'ailments'. I brought -Relax, Cold / allergy and women's wellness.

Tea Leaves,is a amazing place, as I've never seen so many different types of teas in my life. Both black and herbal are bountiful. My person favourite is Berries of the Forrest tea. What also surprised me is the huge collection of Tea Pots,Cups,and Mugs there is, "A TRUE TEA LOVERS PARADISE"
