Billings is spilling over with impressive tea houses, and many of them are walkable to each other in downtown. Start your DIY journey at This House of Books located at 224 N. Broadway, where you can kick back and sip on herbal or spicy tea from around the world. A cup of brewed leaves from Kenya, India, or Argentina goes perfectly with a lazy afternoon of reading. The single-ingredient teas served at the bar are imported from around the world, but are cozied right next to the unique blends from the Made in Montana program.
Next, head over to the Billings Public Library at 510 N. Broadway to find Mountain Mudd Espresso serving up strong brews in the Sweet Café. Whether you’re in the mood for a relaxing green tea, an energizing peppermint, or want something a little stronger like the local espresso, books and brews go hand in hand.
