    The !Ay Chihuahua! Wrap was really good. The cold teas are really good. Customer service is friendly.

    Looks good, feels cozy and it's nice. However, the time it was packed, so you may have to wait for a while for a table.

    The best tea spot in Miami! Their panini's are awesome. Love the coconut curry panino, it's cozy even though small. Sometimes they have matcha flan! Yum!

    Don't leave tips here.. The employees don't get them and the owner takes all the extra income for herself.

    Oh, it's a hippie paradise in Tamiami! Mostly inhabited by students from nearby Florida International University, SpecialTEA boasts it is the "only tea house in Miami!" which is probably true. Read more

    Number one reason I keep coming back: they bake delicious deserts daily. Besides their sweets, their teas and coffees are just perfect. Favorite sandwich: chicken pesto

    If you're in the FIU area and are a stickler for quality coffee as I am, SpecialTEA's selection is unmatched! Coffee's French pressed on order and not burning for hours in a brewer like at Starbucks.

    This isn't really on the menu, but if you ask for it they'll make it. Iced tea w/ Jelly squares! My favorite combo is blood orange iced tea with lychee jelly. It's the perfect mix to sweeten your tea.

    Ask for a sample of the daily steep. If you like it, get it as a straight tea or as an Arnaldo Palmer.

    Call ahead and see if they're open because they ignore that sign in the window that say "business hours" and do as they please.
