The Steeping Room is a real favorite of mine here in Austin. There are what seems like hundreds of tea varieties to choose from, the presentation is beautiful, and the food is delicious. It's an obvious choice for dining if you're out shopping at the Domain or in need of a cute meeting spot up north, and I hear there's now a second location on Lamar, as well.
My friend and I went for lunch the other day, and I ordered English Caramel tea (umm, delicious), and she got a flowering tea. It was the neatest thing - when your tea pot arrives, the flower is still closed, but you know the tea is done steeping when it opens up... so pretty!
Here's a few photos from our lunch. Happy Hump Day. :)
