Where to find tea in Las Vegas

In this post we will be covering a few of the places that we found good tea in Las Vegas while we were in town for the World Tea Expo. Seeking out tea is something we do pretty much anywhere we travel, but it’s especially on our mind each year that we attend the tea expo. Our findings are pretty much relegated to the Strip, as we did not go to the downtown area or anywhere else during our stay.

If you ever go to Las Vegas, one tea thing you must experience is afternoon tea at the Waldorf Astoria. This casual, but slightly fancy tea setting is on the 23rd floor of the hotel and offers fantastic loose leaf tea, delicious foods and pastries, and amazing views of the Las Vegas Strip. Read about our full experience here!

Every time we go to Vegas, the search for caffeine is something to contend with. There are lots of Starbucks, but many times the line is super long or the offerings are hit or miss. We did pop into a couple Starbucks during our trip; we got our favorite oatmilk matcha latte and some bagged tea offerings. The shortest Starbucks line we found was at the Shops at Crystals by Aria.

Inside the Bellagio Resort, near the check-in area, is the Petrossian Bar, an upscale lounge which serves creative cocktails and has an English tea service featuring high quality loose leaf tea as well as bagged teas. They serve afternoon tea on the weekends only, so we did not get to do that full experience. However, you can order a pot of tea anytime and soak up the atmosphere. This is a great hang-out spot that has a piano player and you can do some people-watching. It is like a little tea oasis in the middle of a bustling resort and casino. After drinks, don’t forget to head over to the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden.

We ordered the Darjeeling black tea, one of our favorite black teas! (available in our shop) The tea we had was a high quality loose leaf that was served English style with the leaves loose in the pot and a strainer to pour through.

And at some of the restaurants we went to, we also found some good tea! There is the trusty Earl of Sandwich at Planet Hollywood where you can get a cup of Twinings tea. At Jaburritos in the Linq Promenade you can find some very tasty traditional Japanese green tea. And some of the best tea we had was actually at Din Tai Fung, a Chinese restaurant originating in Taiwan that is located in the Aria. We ordered the Taiwanese oolong and were served a whole carafe; perfect for us heavy tea drinkers.

Of course, the best way to guarantee that you will have good tea on your trip is to pack some of your own. We always travel with our tea and use tsac (make your own tea bags) for easy clean up in the room. Unfortunately from our experience in Vegas, a lot of the hotel rooms do not have coffee makers. It seems like this might be why the Starbucks lines are always incredibly long. 

 

Since we have stayed at Paris before, we knew this going in, so we brought our handy electric water boiler. This is something we bring a lot when we travel since tea is such a big part of our day. We will even bring the water boiler to Disney resorts that have coffee makers just to make things easier to brew larger cups. 

 

If you want to pack loose leaf tea on your next trip, be sure to pick up some tsac as they are an absolute must. Shop Here!
