3 tea shops in Louisville, KY

This story was contributed by Mila Raque.

Although bourbon is the drink we often associate with Louisville, tea culture is brewed strong here in River City.

Tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world aside from water and it’s found in 80% of American households, so it’s no surprise that we have a vari-tea of shops here in the LOU.

Check out these three go-to shops for tea-riffic brews:

Louisville Tea Company, 9305 New La Grange Rd.

This shop has a tea bar where you can sample five ounce pours of any tea on the menu, hot or iced.

In addition to traditional flavors, Louisville Tea Company also serves seasonal drinks, a tea of the day (free to sample) + recipes with specific healing properties, such as the calming and metabolism boost blends.

Must try: Dark Raspberry, herbal tea with notes of berries and summer fruits

Fleur de Tea, 10704 Meeting St., Ste. 101

This tea shop and café is a matcha made in heaven with plenty of indoor seating + snacks like scones and parfaits.

Try your tea as a latte or make it extra strong with 50% more tea. You can also test out a teaspresso where the ground tea is brewed in an espresso machine.

Must try: Tropics, white tea with pineapple and coconut flavors + a cinnamon chip scone

Sisters Tea Company, Online

For the perfect cuppa, Sisters offers teas that are decaffeinated, naturally caffeine free, and organic in addition to the regular caffeinated blends. All of its teas are also brewed to produce elevated levels of antioxidants compared to more common teas.

Each listing on their website provides a breakdown of the flavor profile, benefits, steeping instructions + serving suggestions.

Must try: Almond cookies + green tea with notes of almond and creamy coconut
