About Us

Mike & Nami Thompson

Mike & Nami Thompson are both inherent tea lovers who had a hard time finding quality tea, so they opened up their own one-of-a-kind shop in a freight elevator space. They specialize in fine quality loose-leaf teas such as rare white teas, exotic greens and oolong, herbal and flavorful black teas from all over the world.
That was over 20 years ago. Today, Tea Cozy has grown into a larger space and has a selection of over 125 different teas, and you can get a hot cup of tea to go. Iced teas will be offered during the summer months.

To make tea brewing as easy and pleasurable as can be, Tea Cozy also has a variety of beautiful and functional teapots, teacups and brewing accessories from East and West. 
You will find Tea Cozy inside ARTHOUSE on the Historic R Street Corridor where many unique shops, art galleries, art studios and restaurants are located.

What's a tea cozy?

  • Tea cozies are insulating covers for teapots to keep your tea piping hot. It is often made of fabric or knit or crocheted. The cover can look like a toaster cover that slips over your teapot, or it might be a 'pot-hugger' style that stays wrapped around the teapot. Sometimes they are cute and whimsical. Tea cozies can be used to update your tea table by using one made from themed or seasonal fabric.
