The beautiful details of the tea cups are what drew me into this quaint tea house and antique shop. There were five options (Grand Sparkling Victorian Tea, Tea & Tea Sandwiches, Victorian Tea, Tea & Tea Pastries and The Croissant Sandwich & Tea) available on the tea room’s menu with each one offering an intriguing experience – depending on the occasion. It was also impressive to see an array of seven types of teas, totaling to ~56 options to choose from.
I went with my instinct and chose the Victorian Tea option with the classic English Breakfast Tea. As excited as I was to see such pleasing tea cups, it was a bit of a let down to see the mismatched tea sets. The imbalance of consistency as well as the tearoom’s overall decor fell short of the quintessential British tradition I was searching for. Rather than presenting a three-tiered tea stand with savories and sweets, it was separated into a three-course meal. Sadly to say, the ribbon sandwiches were neither appealing nor appetizing. The scones and petits fours were just as disappointing as neither of them tasted freshly made.
Even though, Tyme For Tea & Co did not offer the traditional afternoon tea I was searching for, it would be a great tea room for a lovely mother-daughter tea time experience.
