High quality tea shop
Tea Gschwendner is a tea vendor that has well-developed chain throughout Europe and other regions. Its only U.S. location is in Chicago. They do prepare and sell tea over the counter (there's not really a place to sit and enjoy), but more importantly they have an expansive offering of high quality teas blends for purchase. The vast majority of the teas are obviously vegan; however, some have natural flavorings that may not be.
The staff is highly-educated and enthusiastic about tea, and they are more than willing to educate and answer questions.
