Tea Bar

Our Breckenridge tripย apparently encouraged us to be a little more adventurous — we made it farther than Starbucks for our Saturday AM date.

The Tea Bar is one of the first places I remember seeing in the Highland neighborhood when we were first house huntingย so it’s always been on my radar.

Cute, right? It shares the space with the Green Garage (an eco-friendly car place of some sort). It was a little intimidating for us to walk in since we’re not exactly tea drinkers, but I checked out the menu online, and it seemed safe!

I selected the Matcha Latte with almond milk.

Drinking the tea!

My handsome husband isn’t overly crazy about coffee OR tea… what kind of life is that???? So he chose Nutty Idea, a coconut-flavored hot chocolate with skim milk. Of course, I had a sip of that too, and it was really good!

Was I supposed to drink out of the high side or the low side of that cup? Both felt kind of awkward!

It was cute & cozy inside, and we enjoyed sitting at a table for two in the sunshine. The good news is that it’s basically right up the hill from my gym!!! :)

Back at home…

Kevin James had some serious yard work to do.

Meanwhile, I exercised Princess Pippa.

A 5k in just under 30. There were Halloween activities blocking our path. And we were lazy.

Saturday’s WOD:ย (via WOD Genius)

15 minutes AMRAP:

I had to use the super high plyo box (24in +) so Kevin could use the normal height one so that made it quite the workout. I made it throughย 9 rounds + 3 step-ups.ย I love it when Kevin does WODs with me! It took a little coaxing because he likes to “do his own thing” and we’re out of our M-W-F WOD habit.

Afterwards, I did some stairs, and read some VERY GOOD NEWS:

I ate a lot of chocolate and bread this weekend. We went grocery shopping tonight, and I’m ready for the new week. It’s going to be a busy one for my teaching business. Guess what? My piano studio got its very own bank account! I’m so legit now. Haha.

Have you ever been to a tea bar/place? Just the once. I’ve seen one other tea place in the area, but I can’t remember exactly where. I know it’s near a B-cycle station…

P.S. Two very good ideas:ย Vegan Candy Corn + Pumpkin Angel Food Cake.

  1. A Matcha Latte with Almond Milk sounds SO GOOD! I love Matcha tea. I wonder if the little tea place by my house could make one of these! I’m sure they could come up with something similar :)

  2. I need to hit up that tea bar when I’m out there! And that’s funny what you said about Kevin- it would be a sad life without coffee or tea!! :)
    I was looking at the vegan candy corn recipe today too- sounds interesting!

  3. I would love to go to a tea bar. I went to Fava Tea yesterday, my first time, and I loved trying a few of their teas.

  4. Sounds like a great place to sit and chillax…would love to check it out! I am thinking of changing from coffee to tea here soon…may need to find a place like that in seattle (probably will be wishing that i was dropping tea for coffee, would be easier in seattle!)

  5. I’ve never been to a tea bar! The area where I live is too lame to have something like that, but I’m sure there’s something similar in Philly which isn’t too far! I really like tea (not as much as I love coffee!) so I’d enjoy a place like that!

  6. I’m not a huge tea fan, so I don’t really go to tea shops. I’ve been to the one in Boulder, near the big farmers market. I can’t think of the name. Otherwise, we prefer coffee. :) The Cup in Boulder is our favorite, and Intellegentsia in Chcago is our favorite here. :)
