Tea Time


One of the most exciting things about being on Spring Break is getting to have lunch dates!  Today I met my friend Kamrin for a bite to eat at Infusion Tea, the most adorable (and yummy) tea café around.

It was the perfect setting to sit, chat and laugh.  I love catching up with good friends while eating good food!





According to their menu,

“Infusion Tea was established in 2004 by College Park native Christina Cowherd after her service in the Peace Corps, and we’ve proudly cupped the finest tea in the Orlando metro area since.

We offer the city’s most comprehensive selection of teas, sourced ethically, grown conscientiously, and served happily to the community of which we are proud to be a part. Thank you for your continued support of our local business.”




I found Infusion a couple of years ago since it is just down the street from where I work and have loved it ever since.  Before today I had only experienced hot tea and scones, but their lunch menu proved to be quite legit. 

They offer a variety of entrees, many of which can be made vegan for just $1 more.







All of the teas are available hot or iced, by a single cup/glass or a pot/pitcher to share, with rare teas have a $1 premium per cup; $2 per pot.

I must say that I am definitely more of a coffee person in my normal life, but it was so fun to see all of the different tea options.  I might have to start branching out and experimenting more!




Their teas are also available for purchase along with other tea making necessities.




The thing I love most about Infusion would definitely have to be the relaxed and comfortable vibe you feel when you enter. 

Although the lunch crowd was booming, the aura is so calming.  I am also always so intrigued by the clean, quirky and fun décor that surrounds the dining area.







For our personal tea choices, I tried the Moroccan Mint tea (iced) and Kam opted for a Rooibos variety that was iced as well.




Lunch looked like this:

Herbed Cream Cheese Tea Sandwich for me

--Cream cheese and delicate herbs
with walnuts and dried cranberries
on sweet fruit-and-nut bread.


Chili Lime Burrito for Kam

--Hearty black beans, rice, tomato, chipotle sour
cream, our signature chili sauce,
and Colby-Jack cheese.

Like always, we both cleared our plates!  It was delish.





I think next time I might have to try this wrap – it sounds amazing!

Nut & Honey
--Local honey, organic cashew nut
butter, bananas, strawberries, and
granola for a sustaining wrap.


Infusion also shares their café with The Arts Co-Op, a local and global gift market/boutique that is simply adorable and stocked full of unique handmade items available for purchase.







Any way you slice it, Infusion is a great way to eat locally, drink internationally and relax personally.  It definitely gets my vote!





I do have to give a congrats shout out to my friend Ferg (you may remember this post).  Well, she finally had her little, actually big, peanut.   I can’t to meet HIM.  It’s a boy!!!




Happy Birthday Jackson!
