This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Have you ever heard of an Iced Tea Bar? I don’t think even New York City has one. Now Miami does thanks to Ticety, 206 Miracle Mile. French  co-owners Damien and Valerie, tea lovers who both were in the finance business, had the idea to open one for some time but thought the market wasn’t ready.
