Sip Your Tea in Saint Paul

Sip Your Tea in Saint Paul

From high tea to chai tea, you’ll find a cup here.

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.

Fresh Grounds Coffeehouse

The Fresh Grounds Coffeehouse is known for large portions and great vibes on West 7th, and it’s also a nonprofit that hires at-risk youth for job training skills. Fresh Grounds serves Starbucks coffee, so it’s an alternative if you’re looking for your Tazo or Teavana.

India House

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.

Lady Elegant’s

Looking for another tradition English tea option? Look into spending a day at Lady Elegant’s. From parlor tea to dessert tea, there’s a range of themed arrays that you can choose to attend. Feel free to browse the tea shoppe so that you can host your own high teas, and renting out the tea room is an interesting party idea.

Colossal Cafe

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.


TeaSource in Highland Park is your one-stop shop for all things tea. Stop in for a taste of over 200 teas paired with a fresh-baked scone or cookie. If you're really a tea-enthusiast, you can also pick up a wide variety of tea accessories.
