Best Fancy Teas - 2008
The Cultured Cup - CLOSED
We know folks around here prefer their tea heavily sweetened and over ice. And we will never refuse a tall glass of sweet tea on a muggy summer day. But at home, away from judgmental Texas eyes, we love to fill our Bodum tea press with a delicious hot tea—one of our favorites is Thé Rouge au Sahara from Mariage Frères, a rooibos-based herbal blend with mint and rose petals. Yes, we are fancy. And fortunately, The Cultured Cup has a wide selection of Mariage Frères teas to satisfy all our snooty desires. Not sure what kind of tea you like? They are glad to make suggestions, and the tea "bar" offers gotta-have-it-now tasting opportunities. To indulge your sweet tooth, Cultured Cup offers fresh Belgian candies from Leonidas (we love the fruit-shaped "jellies") and drinking chocolate fit for a queen (seriously).
