Three Cups of Tea ~ Bothell, Washington


The girls in my extended family have started a Black Friday tradition of shopping at Goodwill and then going to Tea. We were so happy to find this relatively new Tea Room in Bothell, Washington. Three Cups of Tea has a well rounded combination of great teas, really good food, and a wonderful ambiance. We would all highly recommend it!! Lea Miller, the “Tea-preneur” has the perfect personality to run this Tea Room.

The back of the business card reads;

First cup of tea as a guest

Second cup of tea as a friend

Third cup of tea as family


There is a main eating room with gift items displayed all around in great cabinets and then there are two specialty rooms divided from the main area.


This is the Alice in Wonderland room. So delightful. We took our tea in the more formal room with the fireplace and it was lovely.



The ladies with their tea. That’s my sister Lana in the center photo. She treated us all on this day. She is so generous. Thank you Lana!


We were all happy with our food choices. Everything was excellent. Our tea included fresh scones with clotted cream, jam, and lemon curd, Soup and 1/2 Sandwich of our choice, and a dessert. Most of us had to take our dessert home.




It’s a fun spot to shop, too. Lots of great tea accessories and food items.


Three Cups of Tea is worth a visit. You can pop in for breakfast, quick lunch or plan a more formal get-together. We’ll be back!

Thank you Lea for treating us like family. We appreciated you and your great staff!

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

  5. What a nice tradition of shopping on Black Fridayand then sharing a spot of tea. Now those little cakes that look like hats are the cutest ever. I wish we had a nice tea room like that one where we live. I loved the book Three Cups of Tea. A must read in todays day.

    This is a REALLY AMAZING new tea spot…and no wonder the desserts were taken home…all that yummy food and then those HUGE desserts…what a glorious celebration of family.

  8. Ellen,

  9. Thanks for your visit to my blog today ellen. Yes, it has been crazy going from 40 degrees Celsius to zero (yesterday)….and now I am sick with a fluey thing since Saturday!! Am visiting the doctor shortly, so I will be pleased if I start getting better soon!

  10. What fun you gals all had! That tea room looks like a wonderful spot to go for a cup of tea with friends. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day. Merry Christmas!


  11. Oh what fun!! I love to visit tea rooms but rarely get a chance to even though there are a few fairly close to where I live. Looks like a wonderful place to spend an afternoon with family and friends. My dream is to someday own a a small tea room/gift shop/antique shop of my own, but whether or not that dream will ever come true is yet to be seen.

  12. You all look like you had a fun time. What a wonderful tea room, so glad we got to see it too! We lived for a time in Sumner, WA. Western Washington is a beautiful place.

  13. The place looks adorable…and it sure looks like you had a great time…might be worth the trek to Bothell….
    who is just wanting a Ikea trip at the moment?

  14. Yes, indeed a very calm, beautiful and lil cheerful place! – i have been here twice – with a dear fwend!

    It has a wonderful, childish but free-spirited kind of “feel” =)

    I strongly recommend that it is a must to give it a try, pop-in, visit, sit, relax, muse, smile and have some tea … i also strongly suggest to bring a friend or friends or someone close with you – to share the experience!
