The Tea Party had a hipster vibe with its retro furniture and cute Alice in Wonderland-themed chalk artwork. There wasn't enough time to try out its afternoon tea, but I did purchase one of their specialty blends.

I steeped the herbal infusion in my Alice in Wonderland mug that was designed by Paul Cardew to commemorate the classic novel's 150th anniversary this year.
The Curious Concoction had a berry tart taste. It would make a great iced tea during the summer!
