Whether you are a true tea connoisseur or just think the finger sandwiches are adorably delicious, there is something special about taking time for an afternoon tea. Conveniently located near Marquette at Piney Point Apartments, these exquisite Houston tea houses are worth a visit.
If you like tea, you’ll love the spin that Bistro Menil has put on their afternoon tea service. Chef and co-owner Greg Martin, not content with standard choices, has taken things up a notch by including the choice of either Champagne or Italian soda to start off tea time. He’s also introduced some unique sandwich offerings like Toasted Chocolate Hearts, filled with Nutella and replaced traditional scones with a soup of the day.
He had us at Nutella, but if you still need more convincing, the atmosphere should do it. Bistro Menil is located on the property of the Menil Collection, so you’ll be surrounded by beautiful contemporary art. Greg Martin’s main goal with his tea-time offerings is to keep celebration the focus while relaxing the rules just enough to make things interesting.
McHugh Tea Room
This tea room has put a lot of thought into the atmosphere that makes tea feel just right. Not pretentious at all, the McHugh Tea Room is a self-proclaimed “down-home” tea experience. Here, the lovely staff understands that peace of mind is the best accompaniment to perfect tea. Not only is the atmosphere great, but the tea is all organic. Also, they keep a huge selection of over 60 teas from all over the world for you to choose from. To top it off, McHugh Tea Room is reasonably priced, so going to tea won’t break the bank. There is also an option for Tipsy Tea, which includes bottomless mimosas.
St. Regis Hotel Tea Room
