I don’t usually write reviews for any businesses, but I highly dislike when individuals are disrespectful and rude, when there is no need to be. I’ve been ordering food from this place for a couple of years now, it’s really close to home and one...More

Varied teas, most of which are perfect hot or cold. The rest I’m sure are great, I just haven’t gotten around to trying them all! The whole menu is great, the food is fresh made to order and the novelty drinks are beyond a treat....More

I drove over half an hour to come get some food here (still pretty good) because I used to like the place when I was an FIU student. As soon as I walked in with a friend around an hour and a half before closing...More

Very warm place to study. It’s a little small but I think it’s perfect. The food, tea and coffee selection is well-priced. The team is very friendly and welcoming. Could get a little loud since it is a very small place but aside to that,...More

Near the FIU south campus, the matcha latte was delicious, but already sweetened. The matcha chocolate cookies are good too. We also ordered a mocha mudslide. Cozzy place with also great choices of salads, sandwiches and wraps.

Was very surprised by this little coffee shop that has really tasty food. Service is swift and friendly and again as I mentioned the food is great. Went twice in a week as it was such a good place. Will be returning.

Every time I come to SpecialTea I am never disappointed. I almost religiously get a large Boba tea with the black tea base and vanilla flavor, along with the coco-curry chicken in a wheat wrap. The flavors are always fresh and taste exceptionally good— while...More

A little while in the wall but very calm and great for a business meeting or working on school work. The food is delicious especially the teas.

Ever since I stumbled on this place in 2013, I've been coming back. It's a cute little nook, perfect for FIU students looking for a place to eat and study. I highly recommend the Chicken Bacon Ranch Pa, chocolate chip cookies and their strawberry banana...More
