The Tea Bar is one of those super cute, cozy places you could settle down in the mornings/early afternoon to work or catch up with a friend. I'm not so secretly jealous it's not in my immediate neighborhood.

I'm personally a coffee person, but every once in a while I don't actually feel like drinking something hot and then bouncing around the room in a jittery blur. So in those cases, I drink tea, the less caffeinated fruity or gingery ones. Or if I just feel like trying something different there's always green tea. Luckily Tea Bar has a TON of teas to choose from, and they're really friendly about helping you pick.

 Or in other words, tea is good for you!

I stopped in with my friend Nicole (The Reformed Californian) and besides trying a bunch of different teas, we also samples some snacks. (Say that 5x fast.) Now besides tasty teas, Tea Bar also has some of the cutest little snacks I've ever seen. Crispy little green tea wafers. Heart shaped chocolate cookies. When paired with the pretty little tea sets, you have some seriously Instagrammable goodies. Isn't that a +10 in today's world...?

Be sure to check it out next time you're in the Wicker Park area!
