A teeny-tiny little tea spot in Candler Park, Dr. Bombay’s Underwater Tea Party could’ve been a contender. Sadly, it’s not. There’s not ample seating, and despite the containers of loose leaf teas displayed, teas I ordered on two separate occasions were bagged teas. Unlike some other tea houses, there was no timer included to know when tea had reached its optimal steeping point. I didn’t try the “tea for two”, but I may on another visit. The place had some dynamite scones and cupcakes though. The biggest drawback (or to some, the biggest attraction) is that right around 3:00pm, the place turns into Dr. Bombay’s Underwater Day Care Center. Kids and parents come spilling in for ice cream and turn a quaint, quirky cafe into a boisterous romper room of activity. Kinda makes it hard to enjoy a contemplative cup of tea in that kind of a setting.
