Nestled on the corner of Bullard and Palm, 1920 Tea Station provides a comfortable atmosphere for first dates, spontaneous rendezvous, or last-minute study sessions. Although the ‘1920’ in the name does not accredit the Roaring ‘20s, a casual interior incorporates an industrialized layout and Asian accents.

The medium-sized location offers comfort to customers with a couch in the back corner and board games to add to the relaxed ambience.

Primarily offering a variety of teas and desserts, 1920 also has small appetizers, including tasty Japan Dumplings; for $4.95, customers receive 8 dumplings–perfect for two.

For those customers who are unfamiliar with the black tapioca balls known as Boba, Japan Roast Tea and Lavender Tea are recommended for newcomers. While Boba virgins are welcome, so are customers familiar with tea interested in broadening their horizons.

Desserts are a must. Although recognized for their elaborate teas, such as the Potted Plant, 1920 transforms the word ‘dessert’ into elegance and decadence. Marshmallows, chocolate, ice cream, fruit, etc. decorate a variety of cakes, toasts, milkshakes, and waffles. Although desserts take about 15-20 minutes to prepare, it is more than worth the wait; though ordering a dessert at the same time as a tea or appetizer is strongly advised.

Although the Potted Plant Marshmallow toast did not resemble anything of a potted plant, it was delicious; one heavenly bite at a time.

The turnaround time was lacking as the wait staff included only one employee, but for customers who don’t enjoy feeling rushed, 1920 does well with letting people lose themselves in the food and talk for hours.

While slightly overpriced (hopefully the date is going somewhere) the quality of food and service compensates for their somewhat expensive product.

1920 Tea Station is not only perfect for an afternoon with friends, but also a comfortable place to take your Tinder date for the first time.
