Zen Dog’s Tea House Gallery offers classic Chinese teas, Asian art, nature photography, tea ware, Yixing teapots, gift cards and picture framing services. Stop in and taste some high-mountain teas served gong-fu style with water drawn from a pure artesian well. We’re located atop Crown Hill at the northern edge of Ballard in northwest Seattle. Look for the historic tudor revival style house with Chinese entry gate and red lanterns. Enjoy views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains as you share conversation and sip some wonderful loose leaf teas.
Larry Murphy opened Zen Dog Studio in 2000 and the Tea House Gallery in 2003. He serves as curator and tea master. Try one or more of these hand-picked teas that are processed at small estates in China and Taiwan. You’ll notice how the taste and body of the teas evolve through multiple infusions. Stroll through the art gallery in this red cedar paneled studio. Purchase teas with confidence after your tasting and may the spirit of the tea expand your senses. Please visit us often to discover the way of tea.
