23 Examples of Niche Tea Shops

From Herbal Rejuvinating Teahouses to Minimalist Curvilinear Cafes

— June 9, 2014 — Lifestyle
As people become more health conscious, they are beginning to swap out bad habits for better ones; that is where these examples of tea shops come into play. Although the coffee culture is huge, especially in modern societies, it has become a decadent treat for many. Cafes are filled with drinks that are as full of sugar as they are caffeine. People are looking for alternatives that satisfy cravings while being refreshing and healthy.

These examples of tea shops show that their needs are being met in a variety of ways. While some are modernizing the traditional tea house, others are introducing different incentives such as targeting pet owners, focusing on the relaxing qualities of such beverages and turning the experience into something whimsical and surreal.
