If you’re ever out looking for a relaxed environment to unwind, study and maybe drink some beverages, Kaleisia Tea Lounge just might be your cup of tea. Kaleisia made its mark on the university area with its tea, becoming a meeting area for local fundraisers with its strong sense of “communiTEA”.
According to their menu, Kaleisia offers a wide variety of tea, such as thai, jasmine milk and matcha milk tea. They also offer coffees, such as the Vietnamese coffee, for those customers who are looking more for a caffeine boost. Also, they have a variety of textures to add to their tea, such as classic boba, which has been increasingly popular, as well as different flavored jelly balls.
If tea and coffee aren’t your thing, not a problem. Kaleisia also offers a food menu, full of healthy and vegan recipes. The menu shows the different appetizers as well as the entrees. So even if you’re just looking for a healthy lunch alternative, Kaleisia might just have a meal you’d enjoy.
Kaleisia offers monthly calendars to show when customers can get a little more by spending a little less. Every Monday in October is Happy Hour from 4-6 p.m., where they offer $2 regular teas and only $3 for a premium tea. They also offer other various ways to get discounts, such as Friend Day, where if you bring a new friend down, they’ll give you half off your cup of tea.
Kaleisia Tea Lounge is located at 1441 E Fletcher Ave., and they are available for dining in and taking out. It’s so close to campus that it would be a great place for to have a group study session, wouldn’t you think?
