Tea is one of the most popular beverages worldwide, second only to water. Each culture has their own way of preparing tea and this versatile beverage can be prepared hot, cold, with milk or without – in short, nearly every way imaginable. Thanks to Orlando’s multicultural communities as well as international visitors, you can find everything from bubble tea to afternoon tea right here in The City Beautiful.
Tea Room Experience
Ideal for bridal showers, birthdays, and other special occasions, the Tea Room Experience offers a traditional tea service in an elegant setting. The afternoon tea experience includes a two tier of finger sandwiches, scones, Devonshire cream, preserves, and your choice of loose leaf tea. They also offer a children’s tea which includes peanut butter and jelly finger sandwiches and other sweets, along with tea.
For a more casual tea experience, head over to RoyalTea on Mills. This popular Chinese chain is bringing delicious, authentic Asian tea drinks to Orlando. Teas range from traditional milk tea to cheese mousse tea (a cold tea topped with foam made from milk and cream cheese). You can also add toppings to your tea and the options include everything from boba to herbal jelly and even Oreos. RoyalTea is popular and fills up fast. Prepare to wait a few minutes for your order if you visit.
American Girl Bistro
If you are visiting Orlando with kids, consider visiting American Girl Bistro for a tea service designed for girls and their dolls. The menu, which includes savory bites such as mini burgers and cucumber sandwiches, as well as sweet tea cookies and chocolate mousse, is perfectly portioned for little girls and their dolls. And in case tea isn’t your beverage of choice, you can opt for a mug of hot cocoa topped with whipped cream.
Eco-conscious tea drinkers will want to visit Infusion Tea. This local, organic tea café in Orlando offers a wide selection of loose leaf teas including black, white, oolong, green, red, and herbal. They even serve mate. Pair your tea with small bites from their all vegetarian menu, such as sweet potato tacos, cucumber sandwiches, and avocado panini. Infusion Tea is also a great place to visit if you would like to take some tea home with you. Not only can you purchase tea, you can also shop for tea accessories such as infusers, tea sets, spoons, honey dippers, and more.
Although it is a bit of a drive from your hotel on I-Drive, KrungThep is definitely worth the trip. Their menu features teas, sandwiches, and salads with a Thai twist. On the tea menu are a mix of drinks you’ll likely be familiar with, such as earl grey and oolong, as well as Thai teas including cha ma now (a mix of lemonade and dark Thai iced tea) and Nom Yen, a pink milk tea. The food menu is equally enticing with options such as green curry sandwich and papaya salad.
