My wife and I very much enjoyed this tearoom and Blanch herself. I particularly endorse the review by Moore dated 10/31/10. We found the food quality excellent, and a very extensive tea list to choose from. We particularly favor named estate teas and chose Assam Behora - a first for us and very good. The leaf itself was not stale and lifeless as I have found it can be at tearooms which serve black teas to very few customers - it was fresh, and properly brewed with water at the boiling point - a critical matter for the black tea lover. I purchased some of this tea before leaving, It has a pleasing woodsy/floral bouquet late on the palate which I have not experienced before with an Assam. Our visit was indeed serene because the tearoom was uncrowded - when filled with ladies in a celebratory mood, what then?
