Destination Tea Notes: East meets West at Bubble & Co.’s “high tea brunch.” Firstly, this is not your everyday bubble tea shop. Here the cups and straws are biodegradable, organic loose-leaf teas and real fruits replace powders and artificial flavorings, and the British-inspired tea menu is made fresh on premises. Furnished with sleek glossy tables, geometric pendants and floor-to-ceiling framed mirrors, Bubble & Co. is Instagram-ready, but this business goes beyond good looks. Manager Tony Blocker enthuses that Bubble & Co. operates by an eco-conscious ethos and strives to create community, for example, by encouraging customers to post an uplifting message on their wishing tree wall and share a message they find there on social media. We especially appreciate that a Millennial-run tea shop offers an afternoon tea service, connecting the past to the future by introducing the custom to younger generations.
