I’m a sucker for yummy Afternoon Tea!
As I am now 4mths pregnant my fantastic hubby decided to indulge me for Mother’s Day!
So wonderful, he is! :)
He found a wonderfully adorable place in Menlo Park, Lisa’s Tea Treasures.
Super duper cute tea-inspired ambiance, yummy fare, and great tea concoctions!
At our table was a jar of yummy biscuits (cookies), a sugar bowl with a sweet little blue bird shaped sugar lump, lemon curd, strawberry jam, and Devonshire cream*.
Dano ordered the Special Tea service and I ordered the My Lady Respite service.
He had White Pomegranate Tea – So wonderful!
I had Earl Grey Lavender – mmm, like a Spa in a cup!
This was the first time we’d been served tea with Tea Cozies… so cute and kinda’ funny! :)
It was nice that we received more than just tiny sandwiches and sweets…
We actually had a pleasant little lunch… with salad and cheese plate… that was followed by the tea sandwiches and scones…
lastly, we were presented with our pick of dessert from a lovely dessert plate.
Dano ordered the Chocolate Truffles (well, actually, he let me order those for him!)… mmmmmmmmm!!!!
(The server even fashioned the truffles with whipped cream & strawberry slice into a little ‘face’ on the plate!)
I ordered the Blood Orange Cheesecake… Delightful!
Such a wonderful afternoon tea… the servers were so nice, all moms were given a cute little ‘tea spoon’… and we were very satiated when we left!
* One Caveat :
They serve Devonshire Cream with Lemon Curd and Strawberry Jam for the scones.
Sadly, it was not the ‘proper’ Devonshire Cream we expected (thick and creamy), rather it was whipped and airy… it had the same taste, just not as ‘presence’ when placed on the scone.
Otherwise, PLEASE Enjoy!!! :)
Lastly, if you are a Flight of the Conchords fan… let me just quote from “Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros”:
” ‘ Cause I rap about reality,
Like me and my grandma havin’ a cup of tea,
there ain’t no party, like my Nana’s Tea Party!”
Happy Mother’s Day to my sweet Mama! As well, as my cute Sissy with her new little 1mth old bundle of joy! :)
