I love the size of Tea and its location! It's not too small nor too big. It's located right outside of the big city of Sioux Falls, and it only takes around 15 minutes to get there.

Tea is an amazing environment. It's a continuously growing town and school district, leading to a growing education range and system. It's a town where athletics is the main event and a town where everyone knows everyone. Tea is a great place to be.
I have lived in Tea since I was 3 years old. I actually live a mile and a half outside of Tea in a huge development. It seems to me that all the residents in Tea are so friendly, based on the amount of time we spend together. A disadvantage of living in Tea is that there is not a lot of places to eat. Most people travel into Sioux Falls to eat. Even though Sioux Falls is less than 5 minutes away, it still inconvenient. As for the restaurants we have in Tea, great service and excellent environment.
