ARGO Tea, Chicago, IL

A quick journey to Chicago, IL was not without tea! Located in the theater district within walking distance of the CIBC Theater where we were fortunate enough to see Hamilton, was this casual tea cafe, Argo Tea. This chain of cafes was founded in Chicago in 2003. 
Special blends, unique flavors, and cleverly crafted teas are their specialty. A small display case offered a choice of muffins, cookies, and mini quiche. This cafe was a hub of activity with people coming and going, while others lingered over their cup of tea, working or socializing. 
Colorful displays surround the cafe. Along one wall there was a beautiful display of a wide variety of teas that they offer. The clear glass bottles provide the opportunity to see the leaf,  while the placard features its origins, and growing conditions.

Pumpkin Chai was the beverage of choice on this late fall afternoon.

I have had Argo tea (discovered it at a kiosk at the Chicago airport, and now I know why), but I did not know they had their own caf├ęs. Cool discovery during your "Hamilton" extravaganza!

Pumpkin chai sounds delicious. When I have gone into Starbucks during this season I love ordering different flavors of chai lattes. They all just seem so festive.
