I’ve been wanting to go somewhere and have tea for the longest time. I consider myself an avid tea drinker and I can’t find any places that cater to tea drinkers in this area. The few friends I know in Texas aren’t interested in paying $5 for tea let alone $50.
The lighting and fireplace in the tea room didn’t make for great pictures, but it gave a cozy feel and had a great ambiance.
We were served three different teas. An earl grey, apple spice, and peach hibiscus tea. My favorite was the apple spice tea. I really enjoyed the flavor and the aroma was very pleasing to my senses . If I had to guess I’d say I had 4 cups of the apple spice.
They served us three courses and my favorite course was the chestnut soup. I can’t recall ever having chestnut soup, but it was really delicious . It reminded me of loaded potato soup.
The second course was the tea sandwiches and I wasn’t really interested in sandwiches. I guess it was the bread or the idea of things I generally don’t eat. I know that is a true tea experience so I did it.
I sampled everything but the herbed cream cheese for the second course. I didn’t finish any of them. They weren’t bad just not worth the carbs for me. I still had the dessert tray to wrestle with.
I know you only live once , and I confess I’ve never ate a scone before, I know right. I decided to treat myself to a scone AND a chocolate covered strawberry.
I never knew a scone could taste so good. It had the right balance of apple and was nice and warm. However, I did well and only had one scone, though I wanted to have another.
Overall, I would go back next year. It really was a wonderful experience coupled with great tea and people.
