The Tea Centre
Tea is back with a vengeance, and The Tea Centre provides Brisbane's CBD with a relaxed nook to enjoy a quiet sip of the leafed beverage.
Tea drinkers are an eclectic group that have come into their own of late. Their beverage of choice has quickly gained momentum from a drink favoured only by grannies and maths teachers, to a trendy liquid sipped out of fashionable cups by equally fashionable people. The Tea Centre is a perfect example of just how far tea has come. Featuring shelves and shelves of tea leaves along with a multiple page menu, the centre is the ideal place for tea lovers and tea novices to come together to try and test the numerous potions available.
Hidden in the city's refurbished Albert Lane, The Tea Centre offers drinkers a relaxed nook to enjoy a quiet sip in Brisbane's CBD. Paper lanterns dimly light the red walled venue, while the shelves packed with tea leaves, pots and saucers provide an avenue for visual curiosity and tempting take home purchases. Patrons are seated along the window under decadent brass ceiling fans and are set the difficult task of choosing a tea to order.
From classic blends,to green teas, Jasmine teas, flavoured concoctions, herbal and fruit infusions, The Tea Centre doesn't make the ordering process very easy but there is a sense of adventure in trying something new or unusual. To accompany your warm cuppa The Tea Centre offers a selection of sweets and savouries. For a light lunch try the delicious toasted wraps or Focaccia, or for a sweet treat order the sticky date pudding, macaroons or chocolate cake. For the traditionalists out there, the centre's scones are incredibly popular and have been known to sell out during a busy day.
