We were packed this weekend at the Tea Room. When it's cold outside, coming in for Tea must seem like an excellent idea to everyone. Late yesterday afternoon, I noticed a table of 3 women with 5 pots of tea on their table and at least 3 desserts! I had to share in this party, I thought. Apparently, it was Patricia (the mom) and her daughter who turned 18 yesterday and a very good friend - almost a daughter, as Patricia said. They said they were in heaven enjoying all the teas - PassionBerry, Prelude to Bliss, Serengeti, Vintage Bouquet, Samovar and Moonlight & Melon. Wow, quite a variety. They were having a difficult time telling me which was their favorite and then the desserts... They were working their way through a Mango/Raspberry Mousse, Profiteroles and Tiramisu. On their way out, they apologized for keeping us late while they took some loose leaf tea with them - White Tangerine, PassionBerry, Serengeti and Prelude to Bliss. What a great group they were. We gave them some Rooibos Afrikana on the house as a parting gift. Happy Birthday again! This is what makes our job fun.
