We hopped over to the counter after departing our plane at Chicago O'Hare on our way to get bags. What delicious choices and every tea can be served hot or cold! Patrons can also customize any tea and flavor options. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I wish we had these in Florida!

We stopped by to see what was inside and this place was awesome! I gave up coffee years ago so this place was heaven. Every type of tea you can imagine and they have accessories to buy as well. We bought a couple of bags to make at home and I only wish there was a florida location!

We made an impromptu visit to Chicago and found this place on a walk downtown. It's perfect for getting out of the cold and a healthy organic alternative to Starbucks.

I visited Argo Tea while at a conference and as usual, they are right on time. I needed something fast, but high quality. Love their tea while hurrying to Loyola. The guy behind the counter was super kind, too.

Stopped in for lunch. Had the vegetarian Panini and chickpea salad combo and a Hibiscus Sangria iced tea. Everything was delicious, salad was enough for 2 people. Sat outside, beautiful location in the middle of a park. Would definitely recommend it!

My wife is a teacher anchor and I like coffee. Went into Argo tea and got a raspberry tea. It was definitely a change of pace.

Argo Tea has many quality tea options to choose from including their own creation like the mojitea (which I would recommend). They also sell loose leaf tea for a reasonable price for you to take home.

I am a big tea drinker, so I was excited to find this place. We stopped by twice on our vacation because it was so good. Their English Breakfast was delicious and very flavorful.

Adorable green house inspired spot - set in a park like setting right in downtown Chicago. This was really close to our hotel and we stopped in for a light dinner to go. Tea is delicious. For breakfast they did not have decaf coffee which was a disappointment. Friendly staff but just a little slow and seemed a little discombobulated.... More 

Thank lksully

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
