Over the years, I have sampled the menus of many teashops, from Southern and Northern CA. to Victoria, B.C. and England. Steeped in Comfort is one of my favorites. The shop offers many varieties of high quality teas in a relaxed atmosphere. The tea comes to the table perfectly steeped with the leaves removed and ready to pour. A favorite treat is the Afternoon Tea, which comes with a delightful assortment of finger sandwiches, and two warm, fresh-baked scones (lemon curd, preserves and Devonshire Cream are nestled nearby). The shop employs a full-time pastry chef, whose sole purpose is to satisfy your sweet tooth. (Too full from lunch, I sometimes order a sweet to take home for dessert.) With a staff of about three, which includes the owner doing most of the 'legwork,' I am always impressed by her graciousness. As a frequent visitor, I know she tries to accommodate all requests and guests, no matter how absurd or discourteous. I look forward to many more leisurely afternoons at Steeped in Comfort sipping tea and noshing delicate little treats.
