I was very disappointed in this shop. The young girl working had no real experience in tea. She couldn't recommend an alternative to Irish Breakfast (they don't carry it). I was looking for decaf earl gray, she thought they might have it but wasn't sure where it might be. I wanted to buy 1 oz of tea to sample, I was told they only sold it in $13 tins.
I bought a cup of tea then had to hunt for the sugar. It was on a bottom shelf about level with my knees. Then I had to ask for milk because there was none in sight.
We visited the San Clemente area a couple of weekends ago and made two separate visits. This is not an elaborate tea room and it is actually rather small. Still, I could have hung out there all day if we would have been able. The tea itself was of high quality and the knowledge and hospitality of the ladies that helped us on both Friday and Saturday was wonderful. Were I the owner, I might be a bit concerned about the inconvenient location and cramped space but if the tea is the main concern, Lavendar Lounge has got it together!!!
Lavender Lounge Tea company has everything to offer! Whether you want to sit down relax with a cup of tea, grab a iced tea and snack, or share laughter with friends and family lavender lounge is the place to be.
They have so many splendid teas to choose from and the service is excellent. If you aren't quite sure what your'e looking for they will help direct you through all the boggling assortments of teas and herbal infusions.
Every occasion at Lavender Lounge for me and friends alike has been pleasant :]
On my way to San Diego, I stopped by San Clemente. I saw the Lavender Lounge, and decided to stop for tea.
This tiny shop had a large variety of teas available. The only food they have are scones, and shortbread cookies.
I ordered the 2 cup Pai Mu Tan tea, and the scone with all the fixings (lemon curd, jam, and clotted cream).
The tea was well brewed, but... I have to say that the Pai Mu Tan tea was not fresh. It smelled and tasted musty. I do have high standards for my tea. And one of my basic pet peeves is tea that's musty (past their prime).
The scone was served with 1 teaspoon of clotted cream, 1 teaspoon of jam, and 1 teaspoon of lemon curd.
The scone was excellent, but their clotted cream tastes more like butter than cream (wrong texture).
I was disappointed in the tea, and the clotted cream. The jam and lemon curd tasted great.
Otherwise, the staff is very friendly and laid back atmosphere.
The price was also high for such a small amount of food. It was $11.75 for a 2 cup teapot of tea, 1 scone, and the 3 teaspoons of fixing.
The ratings on TeaMap doesn't include a rating for the Quality of Food and Tea. I would give 2 stars for the quality.
I have had many afternoon teas, in many places. Guess their high rent location demands high prices for tiny portions.
