Every delicate, pastel-colored dessert at addicTEA Cafe looks as if it should be a centerpiece at an elegant tea party. That's because the staff specializes in piping frosting into realistic floral designs in shades of mauve, lavender, and ombre shades of pink and crimson. And although their macarons lack exterior frosting, the bright colors of their lemon kumquat, green tea, and blueberry varieties fit right in between cakes. Since no tea party would be complete without tea or someone munching on dishware, staff also create unique drinks. They add a slight tang to iced green teas with a pinch of sea salt, and incorporate jiggly squares of coffee gelatin into chocolate icy milks. For a creamier drink, they also make iced tea in the Thai style with a splash of sweetened condensed milk.
