Destination Tea Tips: Happily, this is one of those tearooms that sells fascinators, in case you need one for your teatime, you can nab one on the spot. Joseph’s Tea has expanded to a large space, which can host up to 80 people, ideal for serving afternoon tea at your bridal or baby shower, or other celebration. The tearoom also serves breakfast and lunch, so you have the option of inviting friends who aren’t interested in the afternoon tea menu (but do those kind of friends exist? ;))
Prices and teatimes are subject to change. Please see our Florida Afternoon Tea Directory for the latest details.
Destination Tea Notes: In 2021, when husband-and-wife Guerby and Shannon Joseph decided to open a brick-n-mortar location for their line of teas, which were selling out at local farmers markets and online, they could not know that their original space (pictured below) would quickly become too small. One year later, they expanded into the 2,000-square-foot space next door, Guerby himself continuing to install the decor and artwork, from wall art to custom epoxy floors. Best of all, “Mom,” (Shannon’s mother) is in the kitchen, where she’s whipping up freshly made breakfasts, lunches and afternoon tea courses. We also have to thank our servers, Sarah and Sam, who breeze amongst the tea tables to make sure everyone has everything they need, promptly, but without rushing us. You’ll likely want to complete your visit by exploring their loose leaf teas (ask to smell the ones that interest you) and taking some home. After all, sharing with others the benefits of a delicious tea is the original passion of this tea company: “creating magical experiences for people looking for a quiet break or a shared moment over a healthy cup of tea.”
