I found this Black-owned tea spot a few years ago when it shared space with one of my favorite Black-owned bakeries. Although the two no longer share a physical space, I still make it a point to visit both of them as often as I can.
Now sharing space with a restaurant in a nondescript plaza in the East Lake area of Atlanta, Jayida Ché Herbal Tea Spot makes their corner feel cozy and welcoming. The display showcases all sorts of goodies that you want to take with you to perfect your own sipping spot at home, and you can chill by the windows overlooking the parking lot while you wait for your tea.
Food and Beverages:
I am a big fan of everything I have ever ordered from Jayida Ché Herbal Tea Spot. Although they tout their teas, I would not recommend that you leave the shop without ordering (at least one) lemonade as well. They have flavors like peach lavender and ginger hibiscus (my current faves). You really can’t lose with combinations like that. Unfortunately, they are only available if you are in the Atlanta area and can stop by the shop for pick up or order for delivery.
If you are farther away–or only looking for tea–they’ve got you covered there too. No matter what you’re looking for, you can find it at Jayida Ché. Black teas. Green teas. Herbal teas. Mint teas. Berry teas. Chocolate teas. Teas that help you relax. Teas that promote wellness. Teas that work well as iced teas. Jayida Ché has it all. Again, I have really enjoyed every tea that I have ever tried, but my current favorite is the caramel apple. In addition to the caramel and apple flavors, you can taste the cinnamon and chocolate, and it’s like all the best parts of autumn in a cup.
Individual loose leaf teas range from $4 (for simplici-teas that are good on their own or for blending) to $10 per ounce (for more blended flavors). Their bundles, sampler packs, and kits start at $16, $25, and $35, respectively. Additionally, anything you could possibly think of that you might need to make or sip your tea is also available: reusable tea bag ($2.50 each), portable frother ($23.50), glass tea set ($45), and more.
Jayida Ché also offers a monthly sip-scription (subscription) box that comes with tea and a sweet treat, or new sip-ware, for $55.00 per month.
If you are in the Atlanta area and can visit the shop or order for delivery, a cup of hot tea starts at $3 while iced tea starts at $4. You can also grab a 16-ounce lemonade for $4 or a half gallon for $15.50.
I have always received great service when I visit Jayida Ché. The staff is always very friendly and knowledgeable, and they make great recommendations, which I absolutely love. I also appreciate that they are very responsive to emails, so even if you are not close by, you can experience the same level of great service.
Jayida Ché means good tea and that is exactly what you get from Jayida Ché Herbal Tea Spot. The aunt-niece duo running the show definitely have something special here. Plan a visit or place an online order so you can start to #sipgoodtea too.
