The English Teacup (4 reviews)
One of my absolute places for tea! If you like homestyle authentic British food and service this is the place! The only tea house I've ever been in that sells foods, candies and teas from the UK AND serves high tea and lunch. The ONLY tea house you will find in Colorado that offers dozens of different types of loose leaf teas that you can purchase. You can try as many teas as you'd like, they are so friendly and accommodating, just like you are one of the family!
Really wanted to like it, because family is lovely. However, it's not an inviting space, family is talking around and over you and it feels like you're in the way, soup tastes canned, scone was microwaved, dry and chewy. They would be better served to separate the tea room from the store and close off the kitchen with a door. Sadly disappointed.
I felt the need to correct my previous post about the English Teacup. I patroned the English Teacup recently and they offered us a choice of teas from their many varieties. They have about 30 to choose from. My two friends wanted their house tea (P&G) and I wanted Jasmine tea so they brought us two teapots for a party of three. The tea was fantastic! Many varieties to choose from! Service was attentive, friendly and outstanding as always. Food still yummy. The sausage rolls are a must have with their special dipping sauce. A place my friends and I will visit again and again!
This is what I imagine a neighborhood country English tea shop to be. It's in a strip mall, and it isn't fancy, but it is pretty darn authentic. They even have their own English butchers that create all the bangers and puddings to English specifications. It is inexpensive, and friendly. It's not a place to celebrate a 'big' event in your life, but for an everyday cuppa, it fits the bill.
