One of the coolest things about tea is that it’s sipped around the world--there’s no one style or flavor. You’ll find all kinds of tea in Saint Paul, and here’s where we go to get a cup.
The Saint Paul Hotel
At least two times each month, The Saint Paul Hotel hosts a five-course, two-hour afternoon tea. This English-inspired event is a total “treat yourself” moment with antique tea cups, and the experience sells out quickly.
If you love tea and live in the Twin Cities, it’s likely that you’ve been to Sencha. Known for its iced and bubble teas, there’s also a variety of loose teas available here. It’s great for quick meetings or temporary workspaces.
Since 1994, Cahoots Coffee Bar nestled on Selby Avenue has not only been brewing delicious Turkish coffee but also has an extensive tea list. When shopping along Selby at Snelling, be sure to take a break on the Cahoots patio for one of their three chai tea lattes or taste test all the loose leaf tea options on the menu.
If you’re looking for great Indian food and refreshing tea drinks on Grand Avenue, you’ll find both at India House. While there’s a variety of tea to try, the smoothies from this restaurant are also worth your time.
If you’re in Como or on Grand, make time for tea at Colossal Cafe—and make sure to pair it with a fresh baked good. The teas are assorted, but we know that it will always side nicely with one of the cafe’s awesome breakfast sandwiches.
