As payback, I took my guy best friend who takes me to HB (he says for the wings, I say, yeah right), to this calming, pretty tea house the other week. You see, guys I know are not really fond of tea houses. Perhaps it’s the testosterone-absent scene or the serene piped-in music. Whatever it may be, tea houses have this zen-like feeling you get when you step in.
Here at tahCha, the expansive place is cozy, the comfy couches are inviting, and the sweet delicacies are enticing. They specialize on brewing loose leaf tea (some are not available for purchase but most are) and can make your drink either hot or cold. If you want a bite with your beverage, they have wraps, paninis, quiches, and soups.
My tea was really, really good — smooth, with no bitter after taste. Unfortunately, I can’t remember what it was. It was a combination of two things is all I remember.
Our sandwiches were okay. Nothing fancy.
But, oh my gosh, the Chocolate Cheesecake brownie is to die for. I’ve been back twice just for that. The almond meringue cookies remind me of my childhood when my dad would bring a bunch home regularly from a French bakery. The cupcakes are so moist.
A great place to relax and have a pot of calming tea.
A pot of tea will set you back $3.99, wraps are $5.99 and paninis are $6.99 (both come with a side of fresh fruit).
Located in the old Korean restaurant inside the plaza off the 285 exit (right inside the perimeter).
