My New Favorite Place For Tea!

Racer Tea Bar in the South Bay (Redondo Beach)

I’ve always been a big fan of tea but thought I preferred coffee until I found out about the Racer Tea Bar. Someone I met on a dating app actually told me about the place. That definitely didn’t work out (the date) but I checked out the place a couple of months ago and have been hooked ever since! I’ve tried a few of the tea lattes and prefer The Rocker and The Greaser. My new favorite is the Peppermint Greaser! Oh my! It tastes like an Andes Mint in a cup! I don’t even know how that is possible but they also have a Bananrama that tastes like a banana nut muffin in a cup.

This is sooooo good!

I also found the story of how this place all started quite intriguing! It all started with a 1975 Dodge Van that the owner (Chad Webber) was serving tea from during the pandemic, the middle of 2020. He had a passion for making tea after a trip to Southeast Asia and wanted to share that experience with others! For 2 years he drove all over LA serving his creative tea lattes and on December 23, 2021 they opened their first brick-and-mortar! So far it’s going great and they have uncovered so many tea lovers and have even made those who thought they disliked tea, love it! It’s a tea revolution! Here is a video made prior to their opening of the store in Redondo Beach.

I also recently learned that they have live music there on Saturday evenings (which I will be checking out soon and will report back!)

The Racer Tea Bar will be having live Jazz this Saturday night and will be introducing Mock Tails!
These do sound delicious!

This is a place you will have to check out this holiday season! If you love Tea…’s a must-try! If you don’t love Tea….this place definitely could change your mind! They also have the best protein balls and scones and yes, I’ve tried them both. Actually, I can’t go in there without buying the protein balls. The crew there are super friendly and I have to give a shout-out to Drew & Leila!

Now, if I can only find a dating app that rocks like this place! 😉

Happy Holidays!
