A Sweet Spot for Tea at Steep Tea House


It's elusive. A Saturday off. When it happens it feels special. 
Time to be savored. Adventures waiting.
Recently, I had one of those special Saturdays. Jay and I decided to explore our next-store neighborhood farmers market in downtown Canton. We discovered a perfect spot to start our morning at Steep Tea House, a few steps from the market.


I love the feel of Steep. Bright and airy with lots of big windows, plants, cozy couches, modern lighting, and some fun, folky woven wall art. It feels like a huge space. Definitely a different look and vibe from any tea house I've visited.
Steep opened in April...just a few months ago. Owners Lyn and Ruffin Moye also own Moye Tea Company - an on-line retail tea company. 
How about these adorable yellow table and chairs and yellow flowers out front? They make my heart happy. Yellow is my cheery color and having a day to play is a good for the soul.


Before heading over to the farmers market, we enjoyed some down time at Steep. It wasn't crowded and we were happy to get seated right by the window. We started with my favorite, a big pot of chai tea served with milk.
Happy to see eggs on the breakfast menu, I opted for the everything bagel with egg and bacon. Jay ordered the french toast on cranberry pecan bread. We shared halves {our standard practice}. Both tasty. For me, the bagel sandwich could use the addition of something a bit creamy....perhaps some cream cheese, pimento cheese, or avocado. Jay's french toast was quite nice - loved the flavor of that bread. Yum.


I would definitely like to go back for lunch or bring some friends in the evening. Steep is unique {and smart, I think} in that they offer beer, wine, tea-infused cocktails, appetizers, and live music on the weekends. 
Very cool! 

Here's a glance at a few more delicious-sounding items offered on the menu:

Breakfast:
  • Avocado Toast with sesame seeds, red pepper flakes, olive oil, balsamic, feta or white cheddar cheese
Lunch:

  • Chicken Salad Sandwich with herb roasted chicken, yogurt, figs, rosemary, and lemon zest
  • Ploughman's Platter - Crusty Bread. Choice of 2 cheeses, slices of ham or turkey, olives, chutney, sweet pickles and mixed nuts
Cocktails:
  • Hemmingway's Iced Tea - Hibiscus Tea, Prosecco, Grapefruit, Basil, Lemon
