TEXAS TEA


I adore tea and now with the cool months soon approaching I've been on the look out for tea rooms. My BFF back in Seattle and I would meet for tea and catch up on life over a cup of chamomile/earl grey. It's such a treat to get away from life's hustle and bustle and take time for pleasurable conversation with an old friend.

I do know of a great tea house in Austin if you're ever in the area. It's called, Tea Embassy. It's near the capital. It's a great old house and they have a ton of varieties of teas. Here is their link http://teaembassy.com/ There's another great one called, The Steeping Room http://thesteepingroom.com/

In Houston they have a tea house called, Tea Agora. They have a lot of green tea from Japan. Here's the link http://www.teaagora.com/ Here's another called, Serenitea Tea Room http://www.sereniteatearoom.com/index.html Vintage Garden Garden Tea House http://www.vintagegardentea.com/

There's a new tea room that is about to open in San Antonio. Jill, I'll have to meet you there once it's open. It's called, Madhatters Tea House. http://madhatterstea.com/

However, a great place for lunch and tea with a girlfriend is Apple Annie's http://appleanniestearoomandbakery.com/ They have really great sandwiches and salads. My friend is originally from San Antonio and she told me about it. It's nothing fancy but cozy.


When I was living in Austin I found a really great magazine called, TEA IN TEXAS. Here's the link if y'all are interested http://www.teaintexas.com/texasteahouses.html

Oh please come to SA for tea. That would be so fun! I've been to Apple Annie's. It's SO good, cute, and they have great cookies. I always get a cookie to go. You would love it.
