(mirotea.com) – Ballard neighborhood, Seattle, Washington

How I heard of this place: Walking through the neighborhood, enjoying the Ballard Farmer’s Market, it’s hard to miss Miro Tea. It wasn’t until just last week that I made my way in for the first time! And a second just this week. I’m quickly becoming a “regular”.

Type of cuisine: Our dream with Miro Tea began with the simple idea that people could enjoy fresh, artisan-quality teas in a vibrant, community-oriented tea shop. Founded in 2007, Miro Tea was welcomed into the Ballard neighborhood as a centerpiece for connecting our community with the worlds finest grades of tea. Through our quality of service, knowledge and product we strive to evoke a the sense of warmth and renewal that is the most primary characteristic of a good tea. We welcome your visit and look forward to connecting with you over your next cup of tea.

In addition to an excellent and diverse selection of teas, patrons may also enjoy sweet or savory crepes, sandwiches, soups and salads. Not to mention a variety of pastries including mini quiche, cookies, brownies, croissants, muffins, loaves, and more.

Ambiance: We are located in Seattle’s historic downtown Ballard neighborhood, occupying a retail space in a handsome brick building (The Portland Building) typical of the city’s historic commercial district. . Explore with us the endless gifts of the humble tea leaf. And follow us as we share our experiences in building a growing community of tea enthusiasts.

Enter the space to be greeted by a simple and inviting selection of teas, books, tea accoutrements for purchase. In front of you, the bar, where one can await beverages or enjoy a delicious beverage and snack.

Ample seating to your left,

as well as seating in each street-facing window,

on either side of the front door.

A bonus, beyond the crowds and seating areas, one will find a selection of teas for sampling.

The wooden floors, tables and features and natural-feeling lighting, the hubbub of conversation and the clinking of utensils create a warmth and inviting space.

What I ordered: On my first visit, I shared a pot of the cinnamon Gensing tea, and sampled the one I ordered on this visit: a cup of Rooibos Green.

And a Vegetable Quiche.

What I loved: The opportunity to sample teas!

Why I loved it: Clean, simple space with a true focus on food and drink.

Cost: High ($9 per crepe, $3-$4 per cup of tea; free refill included)
