FORKS, KNIVES AND FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Let’s Go to Argo (Tea)

People like tea, right? Tea is a nice thing to have once in a while.
Argo Tea is a tea and coffee cafe located in four major metropolitan areas, Chicago, New York, Boston and St. Louis. The cafe serves tea, coffee, and snacks to city wanderers.
They serve fair trade, shade-grown, organic coffee. Though I have never tried their coffee, it certainly wouldn’t hurt to go ahead and try it! Their teas are amazing, with a wide range of signature drinks such as my personal favorite: the Tea Squeeze made with lemonade and hibiscus iced tea.
Other good teas I’ve discovered at Argo Tea include the Carolina Honey and the Iced Pom Teas.
Argo Tea also serves up seasonal specials. In the next few weeks until St. Patrick’s Day, the café will serve the Irish Cream tea latte. You can have it hot or iced. The drink is made with Nilgiri black tea, steamed milk, and all natural Irish cream. Just thinking about it makes me want to try it!
Thirst is not always an exclusive feeling, though. Argo Tea offers fresh, natural foods that they make in-store every day. You can’t get any better than that. They make pastries, parfaits, salads, and paninis, to name a few things.
I’m a sucker for businesses with fair, sustainable business practices like Argo Tea has. What makes them even better is the fact that everything they serve tastes awesome! Whenever you’re walking around Chicago and suddenly become thirsty, Argo Tea should be your number one choice.
