Where: Peachtree Corners, Georgia Style: Neighborhood coffeehouse Tea Selection: 9 organic teas and 7 bubble teas Teatimes: Special Tea Event Dates Reservations: Ticket purchase required Contact: 678-691-0547 Cost: $25 High Tea Destination Tea Tips: Peachy Corners is a good place to invite to tea that friend who doesn’t drink tea, because coffee is a beverage option included in the high tea menu. Also it’s a perfect teatime option for working world folks, as the event happens after hours at 8 pm.
Destination Tea Notes: Full disclosure, I’ve been rooting for Peachy Corners Cafe’s success since they opened a couple months ago, because it’s the dream venture of my friends Long and Susie Tran. They envision Peachy Corners Cafe as a little coffee and tea shop that heartfully serves the local community. Susie and Long, who haven’t quit their day jobs (CPA and IT Project Manager respectively) are a beautiful testament to how widely varied any one person’s passions and talents can be. [Note: Long also has a burgeoning career in the film industry].
In addition to sourcing high quality beverages, the Trans have turned their creative eye to designing an inviting space –with long varnished wood bar, a blend of upholstered and industrial furnishings, and local art for wall decor — and this month, launched their first tea event, a “Galentine’s High Tea.” While the “high tea” moniker is often misapplied to an actual afternoon tea, Peachy Corner’s high tea is a bit more qualified to use the term, as it is served at a late dinner hour, omits scones, and includes heartier savories like quiche and dumplings. Happily, I can give honest high praise to Susie and Crystal, who developed and prepped a scratch-made menu which elicited repeat compliments from everyone at my table. By the time we munch our way through our tea trays, we are feeling properly spoiled, only to learn that there’s yet another dessert course!
As we hear of future high tea dates at Peachy Corners Cafe, we will update the Atlanta and Georgia afternoon tea directories, so you won’t miss out on this affordable and scrumptious evening tea.
