From the moment that my mother and I arrived for our tea luncheon to the moment we left we were treated to a tea experience that we truly enjoyed. It was wonderful and relaxing. We were enchanted by the ambiance of the little tea cottage – so cozy! The food was incredibly delicious! The Melba peach soup, the fresh baked scones, the wonderful array of tea sandwiches and the delicate sweets were beautiful and tempting. The charming owner, who never allowed our teacups to remain empty, served us. There was effort, time and thought given to our tea luncheon preparations – from the beautiful presentation of the tea service that included perfectly brewed raspberry tea (my favorite), to the artful packaging of the teatime goodies that we took home. As we left Moffat’s my mother and I knew that we had found a little treasure of a tea cottage in Dunedin, and knew that we would return to it time and time again.
My Dear Maria, (and your Mom), Thank you so much for your thoughtful and lovely words in regards to myself and my little tearoom. It warms my heart and soul to hear others speak with such appreciation of something that means the world to me. I think we are going to become great friends and I look forward to the time when we see eachother again. I enjoyed your spirit...my dear Mum would have loved meeting you...so glad I had the pleasure:)!
