I took my daughters here for a Back-to-School tea on two separate occasions. The first experience was satisfactory. The second was not. The food was stale and plated without care. The service was nearly non-existent, and I did not appreciate the presumptuous and evangelical prayer request cards. We won’t be back.

My two girls and I loved the high tea, and the shop is super cute. A bit pricey…



I first learned to love tea while studying abroad in Scotland, and I’ve been hooked ever since. In fact, chai made with real milk and honey on the stovetop was my sustenance during the final crush of my graduate thesis. God bless you, chai. Maybe because of those experiences, I love a good sweet and milky tea. One of my absolute favorites is a winter tea from Trader Joe’s: Vanilla and Cinnamon Black Tea. Another is Hot Cinnamon Spice by Harney and Sons. Hmmm, a trend?

My two girls love tea, and we have a tradition of a Back-to-School Afternoon Tea. That thrills me.
