Maybe you need to a low-key place to hang or get work done, but coffee’s not your thing. Miro Tea is the leaf-only club where beans aren’t cool enough to hang, and we’re okay with it. Get a personal hot kettle, or a glass of hibiscus-mint iced tea lemonade (air conditioning in liquid form). There are a lot of seats (and wifi if you ask for the password), baguette sandwiches, and if you can’t type one word without a latte in you, the matcha one is great.
