About Us

From Spreadsheets to Shortbread and a Pinky pointed Up!

In 2019, Melissa H. was in London with her family taking in the sites, and taking in even more Afternoon Tea Services. With all the corporate craziness, of her job, thousands of miles away, Melissa was able to genuinely enjoy and immerse herself in the delights of High Tea. She loved her experience so much that she found herself crafting a Tea Room business plan on her flight home, in hopes of sharing the magic with fellow Arizonans.

In the Summer of 2020, with inspiration from her favorite book, Alice in Wonderland, Melissa opened a Gluten-Free, Plant-Based, Afternoon Tea Room where guests enjoy allergen-friendly chef confections, organic teas, and local spirits to celebrate and escape their own corporate craziness. As someone who lives with food allergies, it was extremely important to Melissa to ensure that there was a place that anyone could visit and to be able to enjoy all the treats of an afternoon tea without the worry.   

Over her career, Melissa worked for some of the top companies known for their customer experience, including Disney, Southwest Airlines and Verizon. She knows how important attention to detail is in creating an outstanding and unforgettable experience. Now retired from spreadsheets and headcounts, Melissa puts all her detail-focused talent into ensuring guests have an amazingly immersive time with premium tea, wonderful treats and hand-crafted cocktails in collaboration with local Tempe distilleries, Wild Hare & Arizona Distilling Co.

Drink Me! Tea Room is a unique experience providing Tempe, Arizona a charming and magical tea escape.
