Zen Tea

A few weeks ago, I found a Scoutmob deal for Zen Tea, a local Atlanta tea shop. I'd heard a lot about the shop so I was pretty excited to have an excuse to go. Here are a few photos from when my Mama and I drove over to check it out:

The shop is in a cute little brick building that sits across from the railroad tracks. It has a very casual, calm atmosphere and they have quite an extensive tea menu. I ordered Yerba Mate, an herbal tea from Latin America, which I'd never tasted hot. My mum got her favorite black tea and we sat, talking for over an hour, enjoying our snacks.

I love getting one-on-one time with my mom and making new memories with her. She knows me well and has so much wisdom that I sorely need. I'm so thankful for her and her influence in my life. (I'm also thankful that she doesn't mind me sleeping over when my man goes out of town and watches Jane Austen movies with me xo)IMG_6912


It was fun to go on a mini day-date with my mom. Mama time + a tea party makes for a pretty successful day!

  2. Yum!! Those scones look amazing and I love mate, but I've only had it with the actual leaves, Argentine style.

    1. Oh, I really want to try mate with the leaves like that! With the little gourd and everything. I feel like it's more legit that way.

  3. Aren't mum dates the best? My mum used to let me skip school and she'd take me to museums and galleries.


    p.s. That is absolutely adorable that she stays with you while you're home alone.

  5. What a fun mom-date idea! Teacups and tea have to be some of the most gorgeous things to photograph, and these are lovely. Also, you are looking cute beautiful yourself! When did your hair become so long and wavy and lucious (maybe always, and I've just never noticed?) thanks for sharing this!

    1. Haha, thanks Priya! I actually just cut off a good chunk of my hair before this...it was such a hassle so I pretty much wore it up alllll summer. And yes, it was a lot of fun taking pictures :)
