We’ve read your tea leaves, Brisbane, and can tell you this - we foresee a visit to Fortitude Valley’s gorgeous Botanical Lab in your near future...
Botanical Lab not only fronts as a shop for all things tea (boasting everything from bubble tea and iced teas to chai lattes and good ol’ Earl Grey) but also moonlights as a florist, gift shop, workshop venue, and so much more.
If you’re feeling intrigued, let us guide you through all the weird and wonderful creations currently brewing in this unique Bakery Lane treasure.
It may have been discovered a millennia ago, but at Botanical Lab it’s always time for tea. True to their name, this lab is not only famous for their handcrafted rose and chai lattes, but also for regularly creating the next great tea!
Those who want to make their tea and drink it too can further rejoice—Botanical Lab lets visitors design their own tea in-store every day of the week!
Batching Bubble Tea
Not to sound preachy, but the lab’s peachy bubble tea made from fresh green tea leaves and real peach pieces (no syrup in sight!) can’t be beaten. Don’t expect a set boba menu when you walk in—at Botanical Lab, custom creations are king!
This beautiful venue plays host to regular creative workshops, with past examples including floral posies, tea meditation, hand lettering, and zodiac readings. Stay tuned for future events!
Back in Bloom
It seems hard to believe, thanks to its success in the tea game, but Botanical Lab only began experimenting with different brews back in November 2018, having first made its name as a flourishing flower boutique!
Six months on, the floral side of the business continues to blossom, assembling pastel roses and Australian native wildflowers to the delight of Valley locals and appreciative passers-by.
Give the gift of Botanical Lab
Last, but far from least, Botanical Lab is also home to quality knick-knacks and gifts. Your crystal-obsessed friend (hey, we all have one!) will adore their rose quartz facial rollers and amethyst-filled terrariums, which you can find nestled amongst wooden flower vases, bottled tea blends, room mists, and other great finds.
Feel like a cuppa? You know where to visit.
Botanical Lab is open daily on 694 Ann Street within Bakery Lane.
