Location: It is located on Buford Hwy near Paris Baguette, but in a shipping center plaza called Koreatown. It is not a brand new building and is connected to other stores but the space has been newly remolded by the tea house, so that everything is new and super clean.Atmosphere: The atmosphere is tranquil and relaxing. Most people go to enjoy the tea and to do work or study. The noise level when I was there was not really loud and they also offer cool chairs and booths to sit at. They also dry their own teas, so if you go at certain times the air is perfumed with the smell of drying tea. Food/Beverages: I ordered the black milk tea with boba and my friend ordered the tea float. I fell in love with the black milk tea. Their milk teas are not overly sweet like some other places (Sweet Hut) and the true flavor of the tea really shines through. The tea float is a cool concept of iced tea with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and was really good as well. They also have other cool tea drink concepts such as fruit teas, bottled takeaway teas and a tea con panna, which is tea with a dollop of whip cream on top. Formosa tea lets you customize their tea offering however you want it and is a great place for tea lovers because they offer a huge array of real teas. They also have a menu for food items such as burgers and baos, but those are made in limited quantities and unfortunately they sold out when we arrived. We did however order the spicy fried tofu, which was ok and the fried egg tofu, which was surprisingly good. Service: The service was awesome, because we had a nice employee help us out with explaining all of the items. He really took care of us to make sure everything was ok and that we enjoyed everything that we ordered. We ordered our tea and he even brought it out to us at our table and after we were done, he even helped us throw away our trash. Overall: I fell in love with the place the moment that I took a sip of their black milk tea. I was so in love with their tea that after I finished it, I ordered another 2 togo. I am obsessed with their teas and their tea house at the moment and love the fact that they offer a real and extensive tea selection. I will definitely be back soon to enjoy many more of their black milk tea.
This is the most wonderful place!! Great atmosphere - cozy - relaxing...great yoga classes too!!! I Love it that a place like this in wonderful Ch…
I went here for a Scoutmob tea tasting. Right when I walked in the door I was given seltzer and told to drink it to clear my palette. The person did not tell me who she was or anything. The person was the owner Doria. I’ve read many reviews on this place and I will say that most of them are similar in saying that Doria is not friendly or welcoming. The guy assisting her was nice but she was short and snappy with him. I hate to be negative, but that’s my sentiment as well. It’s kind of consistent with the Facebook page updates from them too. They are a bit dry. To focus on the positive, as there are many: What Doria does possess is great knowledge and overwhelming passion for tea. She taught our class and paired white, oolong, black and green teas with food that magnified the flavors. She explained history and information around the pairings and accommodated a vegan in our group with different selections. She recommended books for further reading and growing our knowledge. This place is very cute with lots of little trinkets, gadgets and gizmos. The positives outweigh the negatives and I’d recommend it and would love to go back for tea. I see you must reserve 24 hours in advance though so I will keep that in mind. Parking in Highlands is annoying in my opinion. I’d recommend alternate modes of transportation or walking if you can.
I love this place. It is quiet and peaceful. The tea selection is amazing and the staff is knowledgeable. The scones are fantastic. I get a pot of tea and a scone and curl up on the sofa with a book. heavenly.
