THICC Cookies debut at Windy City Tea!

Join us during Black Friday weekend for the debut of THICC Cookies! 

Created by a local bakery to conjure that childhood nostalgic buttery sweetness with a freshly-baked gooey center, these THICC cookies are made to order with premium ingredients. Each cookie is baked with care to ensure it’s crispy on the outside and ooey gooey on the inside. 

Scrumptious flavors, perfect for holiday treats!

  • Chocolate Chip
  • Chocolate Chip Walnut
  • White Chocolate Oreo
  • White Chocolate Macadamia

$3.50 each, 4 for $15, 6 for $20, 12 for $40.

Look for Christmas gift packages of THICC cookies and tea! Coming soon, pre-order and available for curbside pickup!


Latest store info!

We're open from 11 am to 6 pm until further notice. Yorktown Center has posted Holiday Hours, although some stores are operating on reduced hours.

Our retail section is open for loose leaf tea and accessories, as well as hot and iced tea to go.  There is no dine-in service at this time, as well as in the entire mall. Masks are required in the store, and social distancing guidelines are recommended. 

Of course we are following the State of Illinois and DuPage County and the Illinois Dept. of Health for restaurant guidelines and restrictions.


Mall traffic is really slow with the State's recommendation to "stay at home".  Social distancing is no problem inside the mall! However as new cases numbers rise, whether or not there will be a mandatory stay at home order seems to be a "when" rather than an "if". 

We're recommending ordering online, and will take Holiday pre-orders to help us determine what we should order for these next few months.  There's no better way to spend time inside than with a hot cup of tea, so stock up for what may be a long winter at home!


The Windy City Tea Store is On-line! 

Order online and you can have your tea shipped via USPS or pickup curbside at Yorktown Center!  We'll deliver to a three mile radius around Yorktown Center!
