Looking for a way to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee? Try grabbing a spot of tea at one of these local restaurants.
Located on Bethesda Ave, Zen Tara is the most convenient place for tea. Their menu offers a wide variety, from Chamomile Lavender to the classic Earl Grey. A unique menu offering is their Flowering Teas, which contain flower blossoms and tea leaves sewn together with silk thread. As the tea steeps, the flower blooms.
Teas can be ordered to-go or a personal-sized pot can be brought to your table. Also, all teas can have Taiwanese-style bubbles added to them.
Their menu also offers different scones, muffins and pies to go with your cup of tea.
Though the distance to Teaism’s DuPont Circle location may seem far, it’s definitely worth the trip for the shop’s extensive menu of tasty treats.
Teaism offers several variations of black, green and white teas, as while as more creative teas like Berry Beauty and World Peace. For dessert, their Hungarian Tea Cake filled with apricot filling is a must-have.
A statue of a grenadier guard stands outside the British Tea Pantry, watching over their vast supply of British specialty foods and fine China.
For the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the Pantry is offering a special jubilee tea from now until June 9.
Their afternoon tea specials include tea sandwiches, quiche, sausages rolls, cakes and freshly baked scones.
