A few miles from Downtown Chapel Hill is a bustling, outdoor tea house off a little known country road. Honeysuckle Tea House premises include the tea house, herb gardens, a terrific outdoor stage, and even a playground for kids! The tea house boasts of being self sustaining and grows its own produce, including the herbs in its tea. We ordered 铁观音茶 (Guanyin Tea) and coffee; I found their tea to be relatively mellow but in a good way, and I hope to return and try their popular homemade sodas and iced teas. The tables have high barstool-height chairs so that you can sit overlooking the herb gardens on one side or the musical performance on the other. On the Sunday afternoon we went, there was an eclectic mix of families, students, and artists and musicians (and pets!). My son enjoyed swinging on the tire on the playground and watching the dogs skip through the ponds.
