Best friends Norma Jean (yes, she’s a Marilyn Monroe fan) Abraham and Iliana Garcia dreamt up the idea of setting up a teashop to enjoy and share their love of “teatime.” With its shabby-chic décor, Serendip-A-Tea is a place to come and get better acquainted with the history of teas, sample exotic blends and discover new fusions. Customers can come in for a “spot of tea” and of course delight in some of the customary accompaniments: tea sandwiches, crumpets, scones and all the traditions associated with this delicate hour. Whether you like a robust black, a calming green, a refreshing herbal or a citrus oolong, you’re sure to find one you’ll love within their collection of 23 varieties, and counting. Serendip-A-Tea is located in the Kings Creek area; close to the University of Miami, 305.333.2258, 8004 SW 81st Dr.; SerendipATea.net.
