Rose Tea Lounge is like a little secret garden within a tea and flower shop. You have the lovely flowers in the front, and I mean lovely. Beautiful roses in shades of pinks and yellows. Fuzzy white pussy willows. Then you have irises in their majestic purple. Tulips in shades of red and orange. Gerber daisies in bright hues that will surly brighten someone’s day…
And then you have the really delicious blends of tea in the back. Different types of jams on the shelves, scones, pastries, and baklava, too. The owner is also very nice and really takes the time to explain the different teas and even offered to look up the tea maker for me because I shown an interest in a particular blend. We just lingered here for a while and felt awesome afterwards. What a wonderful way to spend time together without feeling like we need to do things.
No one rushing us. No sudden loud noises. (happy sigh)
Just people coming in saying hello to the owner and getting fresh-cut flowers or getting a pot of tea in a very clean, minimal, french country kind of place.
