A little while in the wall but very calm and great for a business meeting or working on school work. The food is delicious especially the teas.

Description
Established in June 2009, specialTEA Lounge & Cafe was the first of it's kind in Miami-Dade County.

Serving over 60 premium fresh loose leaf teas and tisanes; black teas, oolong teas, green teas, white teas, rooibos, honeybush, mate, herbal and fruit tisanes. Miami-Dade's only cafe serving only certified Organic, Fair Trade™, shade grown, locally roasted coffee. Also serving frappes made with organic, fair-trade coffee, blended creme milkshakes, fruit smoothies, bottled craft sodas,
hand-crafted Italian & French sodas, local craft beers, homemade pastries (including vegan & gluten-free choices), desserts and an array of delicious made to order panini, salads and wraps.

At specialTEA Lounge & Cafe, we are extremely consicious of our impact on the environment.
Since opening our doors, we have enjoyed teaching our customers about sustainability, organic products and being earth-friendly. We use local and organic ingredients and materials whenever possible.
We shop for our groceries in our biodiesel-powdered vehicle, and are always seeking other environmentally responsible vendors.

We use only eco-friendly disposables including fully renewable and compostable corn cups, lids, salad containers and utensils, bagasse plates and take out boxes, recycled paper sandwich wrappers made with a soy-based wax as well as toilet tissue, napkins and paper made of elemental chlorine-free,
100% post-consumer-recycled content.

We use eco-friendly biodegradable soaps and cleaning products. We recycle absolutely everything that is recyclable! During construction and all subsequent renovations, we used low voc paints, reclaimed wood and screws to build our counters, reclaimed railroad ties for our barstool wall, bamboo fiber pillows for our couches, bamboo countertops and tabletops as well as bamboo and cork wall paneling. We carefully recycled any materials we could not salvage. We use only energy-saving CF and LED light bulbs, an energy-saving water-heater, a water-saving dual-flush toilet as well as an ExtremeAir® hand-dryer (eliminating paper waste and using a fraction of energy a typical hand-dryer would.)

We created specialTEA with the planet and you in mind. So come in and enjoy a pot of tea with friends over a game of chess, relax with a book on one of our comfy couches, or study for an exam using our free, fast wi-fi. Whatever you choose to do, make yourself at home. Want to take specialTEA home with you? Go ahead! All our loose leaf teas and whole beans coffees are available for purchase. We also offer all the teaware and tea making tools you'll need to steep the perfect cup at home!
