T. Tea Bar & Fusion Cafe in Chico, California

I’ve been coming to this location since it was originally TeazMe. According to rumor, one of the original owners stole away the name and idea and took it on the road to the San Francisco area. That was when this place became T.

Unfortunately, with the old name, also went many of the comforts that were once afforded to the cafe. The seating is no longer padded and it’s like the entire cafe is designed to prevent you from having any desire to be there. To be fair, I do enjoy the modern, fusion vibe, but I liked it a lot better when there were cushions involved.

The menu dropped the sushi and replaced it with some of the most delicious fusion bowls I’ve had, so that’s a plus (the sushi was sub-par).

As for the tea itself, as was noted by Tom S., most of the tea options are (quite aptly described as) frou-frou drinks. They might as well not have tea in them at all in most cases. I usually go for their loose leaf pots, but they don’t regulate the temperature of water provided and it’s usually too hot for the teas I order. They don’t exactly hire people who know a lot about tea (or teach them about it at all), so don’t bother asking for recommendations unless you want a juice drink.

Profile

Bio

I’m your standard nerdy girl in a lot of regards, from my taste in music, books, and movies to my penchant for getting completely wound up in various activities and hobbies. One of my hobbies that never seems to fade away is my joy in writing.

I’ve written a personal blog, a tea blog, and an adventure blog, all of which recently have been brought together to a single location – A Chomp at Life. The Fun and FlirTea section is dedicated to introducing tea to and enticing today’s younger, coffee-drinking generation. It’s a fun place to learn about tea and hopefully start meeting more tea-lovers as well!

More than almost anything else, I enjoy sharing the things I love and helping spread that joy. Now I’m doing this with tea, living life everyday, and adventures – and I couldn’t be more excited!
