Recently I visited the newly opened “Tea House” with three of my friends and was amazed at how quaint it was. From the moment we opened the door, until the moment we left, we were renewed. For the short time that we were there, we were on a mini vacation of sorts; no longer in New Jersey, but some little teahouse somewhere in Europe. The atmosphere lent itself to days gone by; times when people had time to sit and really relax. Once we seated ourselves at the Victorian embellished table, I immediately felt the tension leave my body. The service was excellent! Barbara, Bernadette and Colleen were most informative and friendly, knowledgeable in all aspects of an old English teahouse. The food was artfully presented in a way I have never experienced. A different fresh flower accompanied each plate. The servings were perfectly proportioned for an afternoon tea. The flavors were to be savored not rushed. The china and teapots, wrapped elegantly with tea cozies, were adorable. Every tablecloth was different. The scones, the tiny apéritifs and the finger sandwiches were just different enough to be delightfully scrumptious. The walls are lined with beautiful paintings, Victorian hats, and delicate dresses of times passed. As if all of that weren’t enough, the elegant gifts and baskets that surrounded this haven were meticulously displayed and featured. I cannot wait to go back there. Once you go there you will feel the same.
