My boyfriend and I took a drive up to the snow and stopped into Columbia for a spell (1/25/09). I fell in love with Columbia Kate's. We stopped in on a cold rainy afternoon for a nice pot of hot tea and were amazed to find the overwhelming variety of teas offered. I had the Monks Blend and my boyfriend opted for the Grapefruit. We went home with some loose teas including the Bosphorus, and let me tell you, that tea is addicting! Clare was very gracious and her staff was very attentive and sweet. That visit really made the rest of the day very special for both of us. We will remember it for a long time and do plan to re-visit as often as we are able. The teahouse is very quaint, adorned and festooned with lovely little treasures. A very pleasant time was had by all. We did not have any of the food as it is difficult to eat out when you are diabetic, but I did appreciate the fact that they offer Splenda as their alternative to sugar.
