Serendip-a-Tea, hidden inside a Kendall strip mall, is a scene you'd find in your favorite fairy tale. Vivid designs, playful decor, and bright colors ooze from the teahouse, which is nestled between stores in the Kings Creek Shopping Center. It's been open for a little more than a year, offering 32-plus varieties of tea, including green, white, black, and oolong. Order your choice hot or cold, in a small or large pot, or get it to go. Make it an afternoon by pairing bite-size tea sandwiches — such as egg salad, fig delight, and salmon and English cucumber — with a few cups of tea. Bigger bites, including a raspberry and goat cheese salad or a veggie burger, are offered too. Tea-timers with a sweet tooth should opt for a few freshly basked pastries like cookies, muffins, and madeleines. Everything on the menu, including large pots of tea, costs less than $11, transforming an afternoon at the storybook tea shop from a fantasy into an affordable reality.
