My friend and I start the holiday season each year with your Christmas tea plate. The owner's tea blend is just the right mixture of black tea and spices and though I've tried, I've never been able to recreate the chef's pumpkin pear bisque soup. The orange jalapeno bread is one of my favorites, so moist and flavorful. My favorite part of this tea plate is the outstading dessert--chocolate and raspberry is a superlative combo. Happy holidays Tea House on Los Rios and have a delicious 2009!
