Say goodbye to your local Starbucks; it’s time to think tea. Inhabiting an airy café smack in the middle of Chinatown is Tea Station, the local outpost of the West Coast authority on all things herbal. With a menu featuring around 100 different teas and drinks along with shareable tea snacks or full meals, Tea Station fills the role of flavorful adventure and modern urban hangout without breaking a sweat.

The Details

Tea Station
4355 Spring Mountain Road, 889-9989.
Daily, 8 a.m.-2 a.m.
Tea Station

If you’re feeling curious, sample an iced barley milk tea or a hot cup of chrysanthemum tea while you snack on squid jerky and Taiwanese sausages. Not so sure about dried seafood? The menu also has plenty of familiar fare, like the popular taro snow ice with boba and spicy chicken wings. Open until 2 a.m. nightly, Tea Station is the answer to your late-night sobering-up prayers. If only it offered a shuttle from the Strip.
