My four year old grandaughter Jasmine was visiting me during the holidays and never had real tea, so I took my daughter and her to Teas Me. It is about a 45 minute drive from Vancouver, but oh so well worth the drive! Julie loved Jasmine and she did not worry at all if she was going to make a mess or break anything! The food is excellent, I have been here now 5 times and have brought all my friends who rave about it!
The drive out to the country is worth the trouble after finding this quaint cottage that is surrounded by nature and an aura of peaceful tranquility. The ambience that Nancy sets is reminiscent of a country parlor afternoon tea. Trinkets and tea accessories are beautifully displayed around the shop. She allows people to dress up with hats, boas and gloves...She also takes a picture of your party which is a nice touch! The outdoor setting for tea is absolutely charming with a watermill for the backdrop and flower pots that display a delightful pallette of colors. The settings are shaded with huge trees that gives it a homey feeling. The food servings are wonderful. The sandwiches are meticulously carved into whimsical shapes, like little hearts and tarts (original!)The fruit is so fresh and placed on laced doilies. The tiered display is arrayed with edible and bright colored flowers. The selection of loose leaf teas are abundant and aromatic. The water is flavored with blueberry tea, which was quite refreshing(unique!) The scones are made from a secret recipe that they have perfected! It is piping hot and it just melts in your mouth! (I wonder if they will give me the recipe?) I have been told by customers that people travel long distances just to buy the scones. This tea shop deserves to be one of the top 5%. Take a drive out and experience this wonderful place for yourself! There are cute cottages that sell antiques, tea accessories and notions next door. I am bringing all of my friends here soon!
Service was excellent! They took my husband and I although we did not have a reservation. The servers wear black and white, very professional and clean. The presentation is beautiful with a lot of wonderful desserts! The scones were very good, the sandwiches were very good, the music is classical, the whole ambience is very relaxing,just perfect! There were two other couples dining and they thoroughly enjoyed it too! Visit here, you will not be disappointed! I will definitely return.
After visiting this quaint shop in a strip mall, I was quite pleasantly surprised. A floral mural sets a gardeny feeling inside. The owner serves scrumptious scones (big size) and the loose leaf teas are so aromatic! They allow you to use the hats and boas. The shop has an array of trumpetry that would delight tea connoisseur. The owner is so inviting and very nice. She is so delighted to serve!
