L'Amyx Tea Bar, Oakland

Earlier this month stopped for a tea break at L'Amyx on Piedmont Avenue. The keemun was sumptuous with fruity aromas, full-body richness and spicy undertones. Amazingly smooth and weighty on the palate. Also had a piece of dark chocolate cake layered with white chocolate frosting - maybe it was called black and white, tuxedo or something like that. It got better as it warmed up from the refrigerator temperatures and the white chocolate softened and became more flavorful. Nice refreshment for the middle of the afternoon.
