The Tea Room – Miami
On a recent visit to South Florida I found myself looking for a quality cup of tea. After asking around, it became abundantly clear that if you are looking for good tea in this area, you have to try the Tea Room Restaurant on Southwest 224th Street in Miami.
After a short drive south we arrived in time for lunch.
The Tea Room is located in Cauley Square, which is an old railroad village transformed in to a shopping area and art gallery in the old Florida style.
It is a pretty cool place with an Aviary, restaurants, the old railroad village and more.
Apparently you can book the place for weddings and such.
I must say I like this place and I never would have found it if I wasn’t looking for a good cup of tea.
The Tea Room
Once we found our way to the Tea Room, I was so impressed with the decor!
It was like going from nostalgic Old South Florida to a fancy tea room in London.
The Tea Room Restaurant actually consists of six rooms all decorated in a different style.
We were seated in the Wicker Room which I absolutely loved!
The first order of business was to order some tea.
I found the tea menu to be nothing special, but impressive by Miami standards.
Tea available at the Tea Room
- Earl Grey Tea
- English Breakfast Tea
- Estate Darjeeling
- Bombay Chai Tea
- Hazelnut Truffle
- Sweet Orange Spice Tea
- Belgian Mint Tea
- Chamomile Citron Tea
- Swiss Apple Tea
- White Ambrosia Tea
- White Ginger Pear Tea
- Cucumber Mint Green Tea
- Mango Peach Green Tea
I ordered the Cucumber Mint Green tea and I was pleasantly surprised by the green tea flavor softened by the cucumber and the strikingly sharp fresh mint.
The lunch menu at The Tea Room features salads and sandwiches and in true Tea House fashion, I ordered the Finger Sandwiches.
They arrived neatly presented and a combination of Egg, Tuna and Banana with Cream Cheese all served with Ambrosia.
For a short while I was transformed back to being a little girl and having a tea party with my Dad and my stuffed animal friends.
It was a delightful experience and I will return to the Tea Room the next time I visit the Miami Area.
Now it is on to the Florida Keys!
