SERVED If you’ve been binge-watching The Royals on
E! or are over the moon about the plans for
Beckham’s new stadium in town, and want
a proper English celebration, head over to
Serendip-A-Tea in Kings Creek for a festive
T E X T BY F R A N CE S C A C R UZ
Best friends Norma Jean (yes, she’s a Marilyn Monroe
fan) Abraham and Iliana Garcia dreamt up the idea
of setting up a teashop to enjoy and share their love
of “teatime.” With its shabby-chic décor, Serendip-A-
Tea is a place to come and get better acquainted with
the history of teas, sample exotic blends and discover
new fusions. Customers can come in for a “spot of
tea” and of course delight in some of the customary
accompaniments: tea sandwiches, crumpets, scones
and all the traditions associated with this delicate hour.
Whether you like a robust black, a calming green, a
refreshing herbal or a citrus oolong, you’re sure to find
one you’ll love within their collection of 23 varieties, and
counting. Serendip-A-Tea is located in the Kings Creek
area; close to the University of Miami, 305.333.2258,
8004 SW 81st Dr.; SerendipATea.net.
