Football, cheese and. . . tea! With Q-Tea tea room, Green Bay has it all!

Trying the Royal Milk Tea at Q-Tea in Green Bay

When in Green Bay, do as the Wisconsiners do: see the Packers play football at Lambeau Field, snack on the state's signature food, cheese (eventually putting it on your head) and, with Q-Tea in town,  sit down in a lovely tea room and enjoy a delicious cup of tea.

This week, we took the ferry ride on Lake Michigan from Ludington, Michigan to Manitowoc, Wisconsin and headed north to visit the sites in Green Bay. We stopped at the legendary football stadium, put cheese on our heads and made sure we stopped for tea at Q-Tea. We were delighted with them all!

Q-Tea is just a short distance from Lambeau Field - about a 3 minute drive - but you have to look for it as it is set back a bit in an unassuming strip mall. But, once inside, you enter a tea room with a sleek, modern decor, where students, tourists and Packer fans can all feel comfortable.

With only a little time to make the most of our Q-Tea visit, I opted to try the monthly drink special, "Royal Milk Tea". This special brew is made of Earl Grey tea, milk and honey boba and can be served hot or cold. I chose the former and thoroughly enjoyed it. The first sampling tells you its creamy and sweet, but not cloying or saccharin-y.  I actually liked it better with each subsequent sip. It was the perfect afternoon treat after a day of Midwest traveling.

We had excellent customer service from Maddie. She was quick to answer our questions and brew us up a few monthly specials. My only regret is that we didn't have more time to sample the variety of teas on the menu and sit a spell in the welcoming environs of the Q-Tea tea room.

Next time you're in Green Bay for a football game or cheese tasting/donning, take a short trip down Oneida Street for a delicious cup of tea - hot or cold - at Q-Tea. Green Bay has something for every taste!

(As a die-hard Detroit Lions fan, I may have had to check my cheese-hat before entering Escanaba, but the teas can stay with me all through football season, where I often need a calming cuppa on a Sunday afternoon.)

Excellent customer service from Maddie, answering our questions & brewing tea!
