Special Teas @ 803 Fort Street.
April 23, 2010
+ packaged cookies
I thought it was about time I tried out some tea shops, and there was a parking space. I do sort of like tea. I adore my own home made iced tea. But I don't think I am a tea person. I don't appreciate the subtle differences. I drink it black with a bit of sweet. I think putting milk in tea turns it to mud. This is a lovely tea shop, with a wall of different teas in dozens of black and gold tea tins. There a couple of small tables, and the tea is served on its own little heating stand, lit with a votive candle. It comes with a couple of cookies. The atmosphere is quiet and contemplative. It's kinda dim, and there's lots of Asian rugs lying about. I don't really do contemplative. However, the tea was very good.
