Destination Tea Notes: Hostess Brandi Shelton has brought afternoon tea to the Sweet Auburn Curb Market; most fitting for an establishment that opened in 1924, when American tearooms were coming into their own. At her Just Add Honey Tea Cafe, you enjoy afternoon tea metro-Atlanta style, in a cafe nestled within the bustling activity of a city market. After perusing the shelves of teas to choose your favorite, you’ll pull up a barstool to enjoy tea at the counter of this open-air shop. Brandi personally visits her growers and blends her own teas using natural ingredients for flavoring, and her knowledgable server was happy to guide our tea selection. If any in your party has difficulty hearing, consider reserving a private party after hours, when table and chairs are set up inside or on the patio. While you may also reserve a tea tasting here, we recommend going for the afternoon tea repast, which is made by local caterer Lovable Foods. It is a creative, made-from-scratch delight!
