Everybody needs a relaxing break once in a while. Instead of a busy coffee shop, why not try the relaxing atmosphere of a tea house? There are two trendy Houston tea houses you’ll want to try next time you want to slow down.
Once you settle in at McHugh Tea, you’ll wonder why you haven’t indulged before. They have everything you need to treat yourself and your friends to a lovely afternoon.
With an extensive menu, you can enjoy lunch, or high tea, which includes the option of a traditional tea or a tipsy tea. Lunch options include quiche, sandwiches, soup or salad.
High tea is held every day between 2:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. and requires a reservation at least 24 hours in advance. The high tea is an elegant offering of bottomless organic teas, scones with clotted cream and jam, tea sandwiches, and a variety of desserts.
A tipsy tea includes everything mentioned plus bottomless Cellar Barcelona Brut Cava. The combination of the beautiful desserts and tea along with the eclectic and exciting decor makes this a hotspot for a unique day out.
Path of Tea
If you’re looking to focus on the tea rather than the desserts, head on over to Path of Tea. Path of Tea is a lovely tea shop that has over 125 organic tea choices. The founders, Thia McKann and her husband Chris want their customers to enjoy not only the tea but the whole experience.
You can get a cup of tea, a pot, or a tea-to-go, but you can also schedule an entire tea experience. You can enjoy the traditional Chinese gung fu tea service as well as the weekly tea tasting and special events as planned.
