My sister loves to go to tea and has really got me caught up in it with her now. We have now sampled several tea houses in the San Diego area. We were at first put off by the plastic chairs and were a little worried about what we had gotten in to, but it turned out to be one of my favorite places and I shall return again and again. We had such great service and I'm sorry I can't remember out hostess's name, but she was wonderful. She let us pick several different teas, as many as we wanted. She made it fun for us to try new teas and we actually ended up trying 4 different teas that day. The teas were so good that we both purchased a bag of 3 of the teas we had tried. We have since run out and are making plans for another trip to replenish our tea fix. The carmel tea was to die for! The scones melted in our mouths. They gave us so much food I could hardly breathe when we left the shop, but everything was so good we couldn't help but eat it all. The only thing I did not care for was they use sugar crystals instead of cubes and the crystals do not melt very fast. I much prefer sugar cubes that melt instantly into the tea. I would definately recomend this place to anyone, although keep in mind it is not a fancy refined place, but a nice relaxing casual atmosphere. The outside area looked lovely and my sister wants to try that next time. It was too hot the day we were there to sit outside, but it looked very peaceful. I hope you give this wonderful place a try as it is truly a tealightful experience.
