Last weekend, my family and I went to the Mulberry Tea House for afternoon tea. Though walking in it looks a bit not like you would’ve expected, the food there is delicious. There was a wide variety of exotic teas to choose from. For example, I picked out the Dark Chocolate Cheesecake tea, and it tasted almost EXACTLY like cheesecake. I was really impressed. The scones that they had to choose from were also very unique. They had chocolate chip scones that were literally so good, and tasted like a cookie. They had many finger sandwiches to choose from, and though most of them were very classic, there were a few that stood out, like the Hoi-Sin Pork Tenderloin & Cucumber sandwich, that was absolutely delicious. The pastries were also quite interesting, but were overall a great finish to the meal. The teacups and teapots weren’t as fancy as a normal afternoon tea tea set, but they were actually very pleasant to drink out of, and easy to pour tea out of as well. The room was nicely lit, and was very bright. But, the flow of the tables was kind of cramped, and there weren’t that many tables. My family and I made up a group of four, and I really thought that we got the best bang for our buck.
Today, my family and I went to the Peacock Inn for Mothers Day. It was absolutely amazing, from the food to the waiters! The Peacock Inn is also a hotel. Imagine waking up everyday, and going for high tea! 🙂 Though today was super rainy, it definitely made my day 20x better! The tea there was very high quality and delicious, though there wasn’t many options. The scones were absolutely amazing. They were kind of hard and crunchy on the outside, but super delicious and soft on the inside. The little sandwiches were so quaint and definitely very exotic. Delicious yet exotic. There was a huge variety of food. The dessert was delectable. There were macarons, and many other kinds of chocolate desserts. Be warned though that some of the food contains nuts, so try to ask for the nut-free version. Trust me: it’s just as amazing. The place itself was really cute and nice. It was nice and neat, and the ambience was very enjoyable. The lights were just bright enough that if it was a sunny day, the whole place would be lit up. Based on what high tea is usually priced at, this place was priced perfectly.
Th Peacock Inn was very enjoyable, and I highly recommend it as an afternoon tea option!
My family and I recently went to New York, New York to enjoy Afternoon Tea at The Plaza Hotel. The Plaza has been featured in many big productions, for example, many Eloise movies and books. It also has a beautiful view of central park from the already glamorous hotel suites.
Highlights of the Experience Were:
Palm Trees INSIDE the Afternoon Tea room
A separate kids tea based on Eloise
Every member of the party received a complimentary chocolate version of the plaza
When I had arrived at The Cozy Cupboard, all I saw on the outside was a house. But, when I went inside, it was a beautiful area with the perfect lighting and lots of tables that could fit many people. They service was also amazing as they greeted us warmly, and came to check in on us every so often.
The selection of tea wasn’t very wide, but, the tea itself was very high quality and I enjoyed that very much. The scones were very big, and quite warm, but very delicious. They had given us loads of preserves, and being that one huge clotted cream fan, I obviously loaded up on a lot of clotted cream. The finger sandwiches were actually not as delicious as I had expected. I really had one favourite out of all the ones they gave me, (but it’s not personal at all, I just happen to enjoy one sandwich more than the others). It was the sandwich that included the cucumber and the cream. Onto desserts! They had given us the options of choosing different cakes and pies. (For example, cheesecake, chocolate, key lime, etc.) I chose a cheesecake, and to be honest, it wasn’t amazing, but it also wasn’t terrible. It somehow tasted as if it had a hint of cinnamon.
The food variety was very wide. I remember one of my family members getting a salad and a soup. Looking on the website, there were also quiches and crepes. Of course the price of all these foods were quite fair for the quality.
My family and I recently went to Teaberry’s to enjoy a new Afternoon Tea experience.
The selection of tea is amazing and there are so many different and unique flavors to choose from. I was also quite impressed with the scones. There were some plain one, and other ones with dried fruit inside.
The finger sandwiches were very interesting. My personal favorite had sliced cucumber on the top. The pastries were delicious, and very unique. I really enjoyed the mini biscuits with dried fruit and white chocolate.
The fine china there was beautiful and extremely delicate which made the tea experience even more enjoyable. The menu had a huge variety of different tea sets, and the bright ambience made it easier to see everything.
What made this amazing experience unique was that they tried to make the setting from the early 1900’s with tight dresses and mid-century furniture.
I highly suggest you come to Teaberry’s for your Afternoon Tea experience.
