The original mission of the owners, Kim and Lan, was to create a place of community. I think it is fair to say mission completed. I know for a fact many friendships have started here, groups have formed, ideas have been shared, and there has probably been a few who have fallen in love over quality tea. But it is not the tea that's the best part, although they do this very well. Its the space they create.
In fact, they create space so well, they've recently kicked it up a notch. About a month ago, they unveiled their new location with more space including a larger and more private patio and a Japanese tea room.
And it really isn't the space itself that is so great, it's what it is filled with. In everything that kaleisia does, first and formost, is consideration of the community and how they can enrich it. They aren't in this business to make money. Their in it to make the world a better place and they do, one cup at a time.
