There’s no denying craft coffee has had its day in the sun. Today’s trendy beverage: tea. It’s no surprise, considering the myriad health benefits of drinking tea—packed with nutrients, tea has been known to protect against cancer, obesity and Alzheimer’s disease. Never one to miss out on a trend, the Buckhead area is home to some incredible tea shops and services. Take a look at some of our favorites:

Zen Tea Atlanta Tea Room

Boasting a collection of more than 160 teas from around the globe, this warm and welcoming tea temple in Chamblee hosts daily high tea service (reservations required; $24 per person), alongside weekly tea tastings and classes, tea flights in their café, free Wi-Fi and a light bakery menu.

Bishops Coffee and Tea

Beloved for both their coffee and tea offerings in Morningside, expect more than 50 sustainably sourced, loose-leaf tea varieties from around the world. Whether you’re craving white, green, oolong, black or herbal tea, this locally owned shop is as charming as it is delicious. Go for the Bombay Chai latte—its layered, spicy profile puts that bottled concentrate used at other places to shame!

St. Regis’ seasonally changing menu and tea service is as beautiful as it is delicious.

Hotel High Tea

Both the Ritz-Carlton Buckhead ($44 per person) and The St. Regis Atlanta ($40 per person) offer traditional afternoon tea service. The Ritz’s tea time, served in true British form with loose-leaf tea steeped in individual teapots and poured through sterling silver strainers into bone china teacups, is accompanied by sweet and savory treats and live piano entertainment, while the St. Regis offers a seasonally changing menu of savory petite sandwiches, freshly baked scones, pastries and petit fours with their tea service, which is delivered by their signature butlers.
