If you’re looking for a fun, chic thing to do with a friend (and you live in the greater Cincinnati area), I highly recommend The Tea Parlor in Liberty Township.
This is such a lovely place with the most relaxed but fancy ambiance. My friend Katie and I visited last month for the full tea, and we savored every single bite. They make everything themselves, and it really shows because the food was so incredibly delicious!
Each month, the menu for full tea changes to reflect the theme for that month. You can also choose to just have a dessert tea, cream tea, or savory tea if you don’t want to get everything on the menu. The portions are small but I still felt very full afterwards because there was so much included still in the full tea, plus we were sipping tea and water the whole time.
This adorable place is run out of a woman’s home – it’s sort of annexed to one side of her house so you won’t feel like you’re infringing on someone’s personal space. There’s also plenty of parking available which is great. They’ve been open for 12 years, which is an incredible feat for any small business. They’re open Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from noon to 5, and it’s preferable that you make reservations to ensure there is room that day.
Katie and I went on a rainy day and we were sat right by a window, and it just felt so lovely and cozy. I definitely want to go back with my mom because she would love this too. The full tea is $23 a person, but it is absolutely worth the splurge!
