 Churchill’s Fine Teas has locations at Rookwood Commons and at Findlay Market. They sell loose leaf tea which you just need a tea strainer to enjoy. When you buy tea at Churchill’s, they give it to you in a plastic bag. You can clean and reuse those bags, or you can bring your own reusable, sealable bag to purchase your tea in.
