Slice of Life: Trip to Goldfish Tea

Last week I decided to venture on a new tea journey with my good friend and fellow blogger Stephanie at Life’s a Cup of Tea. Speaking of which, you should all go check out her blog here. Having been to the Just Delicious tea room a couple of times before, we decided to check out someplace new. Our final decision was to visit, Goldfish Tea located in Downtown Royal Oak, MI.

Upon walking into Goldfish Tea, we were greeted by this following tea pun enthused sign…

Immediately after walking into the front you are greeted by East Asian decor. Porcelain tea sets adorn the curio cases, as well as classic Mahjong sets, and much more. Most of these items are available for purchase.

Goldfish Tea is a tea room that serves green, oolong, black, white, jasmine and pu’er loose leaf teas. They also serve coffee drinks like lattes and Bubble tea (which is delicious) along with sandwiches, salads, soups. Upon looking at the menu, it took a while for us to figure out what tea to try since there were so many good choices to pick from.

Since we were both fans of Oolong tea, we narrowed it down to that category and chose the “Honey Phoenix Oolong”. This tea smells like a fragrant flower and tastes slightly more fruity than the usual Oolong. We decided to try some Hazelnut tea cake which was light and sweet.

Something else that was added bonus about Goldfish Tea, is the fact that the drinks and food were inexpensive.  A lot of tea rooms can be super fancy and pricey, but this place was laid back and calm. You could read on one of their comfy couches, work at small table if you had to do computer work, or if you have a medium or larger sized (4 people or more) group they had larger tables for seating.

Not only can you purchase tea sets, but also bags of loose leaf teas to brew in your own home.

So many to choose from!

Overall, Stephanie and I really enjoyed our first experience at Goldfish Tea. It was laid back, had a good variety of teas to choose from, and it was inexpensive. I highly recommend visiting this tea room!
