Lady Ball's Tea Room is just delightful! The tea selection is excellent and served in wonderful flowery bone china tableware. The many rooms in the tea room provide a cozy Victorian nostalgia and you feel as though you have stepped back in time to another era. The service was great and the hostess equally delightful. A lovely way to spend the afternoon in Westbrook, ME!
The Dunbar House Tea Room in Sandwich, MA is absolutely delightful! The tea selection is excellent and the menu and food is superb! There is also a lovely selection of tea and tea accessories to browse through once you have sipped and sampled your way through the menu. The Kimberly Shaw tea cards are a particular delight and loose tea can be purchased for a 'take home' treat. Definitely a warm and wonderful place to visit when you are visiting Cape Cod.
The Tea Leaf is a very traditional Tea Room promoting a calm, serene environment that offers a visitor a delightful hour or two of sampling and tasting a variety of teas. The staff is always friendly and efficient, the food selection is homemade, varied and changing per season, and the scones, without a doubt, will bring you back! Proprietor, Sally Collura, is always front and center, warmly greeting guests and making sure that everyone is having a good time. Sally is always willing to share her in-depth knowledge of tea and we always walk away knowing a little more about tea and tea traditions. The Tea Leaf offers a wide variety of bagged and loose-leafed teas, tea pots, tea cups, tea cozies, and tea accessories for purchase, along with a fine line of Victorian products, clothes and purses, and a wide variety of tea books, fine writing papers and seals, and magazines. It's always fun to browse and poke around while that special pot of tea is brewing! My friend Leslie and I visit the Tea Leaf as often as we can, to stop and step back in time a bit, and to relax and unwind after a busy week. We highly recommend The Tea Leaf and always look forward to our next visit!
Lois & Leslie,Thanks so much for visiting once again. It's always my pleasure to chat about tea with people who truly appreciate this wonderful and beneficial beverage. Thanks also for bringing the wonderful samples of tea from The Portsmouth Tea Company.
