We are pleased to announce that Tea Spa has been named one of three best affordable Day Spas in DC metro area. It is definitely an encouragement for us to keep doing what we are: a highest level of relaxing experience with an affordable price.
The Tea Spa
2424 University Blvd W., Suite 202, Silver Spring; 301-942-1222.
In a dated strip mall at the busy corner of University Boulevard and Georgia Avenue, Tea Spa makes getting a massage convenient: Unlike many spas, it’s usually easy to book an appointment on short notice.
After checking in, you’re offered—what else?—a cup of tea. In the dimly lit waiting area, a comfy sofa faces a TV playing an oddly soothing video of tropical fish.
We tried several of the spa’s massage therapists, who were all skilled. If you’re really stiff, try Myriam Coimin, who uses traction and gentle stretching during a massage to limber up joints as well as work out knots.
Of note: A $49 yearly membership discounts hourlong massages to $49—they normally range from $70 to $90—with no cancellation fee up to three hours before an appointment.
Online booking? Yes.
