We are tea lovers! Are you? Tea2Go (7320 Milwaukee and 105th & Quaker) is really focused on the health benefits of tea. Their motto is “Healthy Tea 4 Healthy Living” and they strive to use the freshest, natural ingredients. We were unexpectedly surprised by what we saw when we walked in – containers of loose leaf tea categorized by type. The descriptions tell you everything you need to know about that specific type.
The tea variety includes Loose Leaf, Black, Green, Herbal, Weight Loss, Oolong, White, Rooibos, Fruit, and Chai teas. What flavors can you choose from? TONS, but here’s a little taste… cinnamon orange spice, orange blossom, cool mint lemon, acai raspberry, strawberry mango, passion fruit, and many others. And don’t be afraid to use your sniffer to pick that perfect tea – they even have coffee grinds to clear your palette.
During our visit, we were treated to a sampling of teas. We tried the “Tea Bar” first. There were 16 teas to choose from. We tried the coconut and it was very refreshing. Tea2Go does not dump cups of sugar into their tea. It was a natural sweetness. Behind the counter, the crew was crafting up some custom loose leaf teas. We had watermelon tea which sounds kind of strange, but it really tasted good and refreshing. Not in the mood for tea? You can also get cappucinos, lattes, and espresso. There are chairs and tables set up for you to enjoy your tea. Be sure to check out the new lounge area – complete with comfy couches. Plus, there is free wifi!
