Nashville Tea Co, A Modern Tea House, Columbia, TN

Our second tea room adventure during summer vacation took us to Columbia, TN and the Nashville Tea Co, A Modern Tea House, billed as old world sophistication wrapped in Southern charm. Located about 40 miles south of Nashville in an old restored shirt factory, now The Factory at Columbia, the tea bar, along with assorted various stores and foodie stops offers a unique destination. 

This bright and airy, casual tea house offers a wide variety of teas along with a seasonal menu. Susanna tried the 'create your own' bubble tea. Nancy selected a herbal blend, The Pink Lady, with sweet apple and roasted carnalized almond notes. David opted for one of their many green tea blends, iced.

This casual style tea house is perfect for a quick lunch stop accompanied with a refreshing choice of tea. We opted for the Herb and Veggi Pasta Salad, the Seasonal Cucumber Sandwich, the Cheese & Herb Quiche made with cheddar, mozzarella, and fresh garden herbs, and the Cumberland Scone, a seasonal scone with blackberry, maple, and sweet maple glaze.

The cucumber sandwich, a perfect summer option featured English cucumbers, gournay cheese, garlic & herbs, cream cheese, mayo & microgreens on artisan bread. It was a hearty cucumber sandwich, quite enjoyable.

This built-in wooden shelf unit featured an assortment of tea blends to purchase.

Looks delicious! So fun for you all to experience different tearoom settings while on vacation. Glad they are still open.

We used to have a similar tearoom here in Portland. I love making my own bubble tea combinations. I haven't done that in a long time. Yummmm! And the sandwich looks delicious too.
