Places to go in DC: Ching Ching CHA

Ching Ching CHA $$ 
1063 Wisconsin Ave NW (in Georgetown)

Lovely traditional chinese tea shop and restaurant.  Little bento boxes served delightfully alongside tea of your choice.  Each table comes handy with it's own teapot and a small burner to keep the water hot.  There is traditional seating on your knees towards the front of the restaurant (please ensure you take off your shoes before entering this space) or some tables along the rest of the restaurant.  Children's Chinese books line the entrance of the establishment alongside bagged teas.  I bought a bag of Lapsang Souchong for $8.50 and stayed for Green Hair green tea for $7.  The Green Hair brew has a great sweetness to it, a bite of honey.  A bit pricey for tea, but well worth it for the environment and friendly service.
