Zen Tea in Chamblee

Friday was my fifth wedding anniversary (I can't believe it's already been five years!), so the DH and I decided to go gallivanting around Atlanta and see a movie, have lunch and dinner, and do a little exploring. Following lunch and a movie at Atlantic Station (we saw "The Debt," which was very good), we headed to Chamblee. After visiting one sign-filled antique store that looked like the American Pickers guys had stocked it, we happened upon this surprise find, Zen Tea!

I recently heard about this new contemporary-style tea shop but had forgotten it was in Chamblee. Inside there were tables with several people enjoying their tea and snacks. They had a good selection of cast iron teapots, assorted teacups and tea mugs, and a nice variety of tea accessories and filters.

I left with two mini-cupcakes, a great size for tide-us-over snacking, and this Black Caramel Roasted Almond tea I selected after the friendly sales clerk allowed me to sniff several different blends. Later that night I enjoyed some as a dessert tea, and it had a very rich, delicious and sweet taste even though I added no sugar. Perfect! Next time I'm in the area, I'll definitely be stopping by Zen Tea. (You can see their selections online at

  4. Hello Angela - Happy Anniversary!

    Sounds like a wonderful way to spend the day. I remember your wedding planning, as if it were yesterday - here's wishing you many, many more Happy Anniversaries! All the best to you & Alex, Joanie

  5. How fun to find a new tea shop. Sometimes I find flavored teas smell good, but don't taste so good. Glad to hear you enjoyed this one and without sugar too. Just smiling, as I don't ever add sugar to tea. I think it is done alot more in your part of the world.

  6. Happy Anniversary! My dh & I will actually be going through Atlanta in the spring when we celebrate our 25th ann. We're heading to the beach so I've been researching beaches & gardens I want to visit. I need to add some tea shops on my list too!


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
