Saturday's lunch at Brew City Tea was fun, although I wish more people would have been able to make it. Jean, the owner, was very hospitable, offering our group delicious
freshly-baked complimentary scones. (Thank you, dear. I'll definitely be returning!) It was good to meet/re-meet a few of the members. I really enjoyed your company.
I was very relaxed the intimate setting, sun-lit by one wall made entirely of windows. They have a half-dozen or so small cafe tables and decorate with local artists works. I also find it important to mention the tea house was very clean in appearance and smell.
The individual tea pots held enough for a few cups which made it possible to get several flavors and share. The most memorable tea was Sencha Kyoto, a flavored green that smelled strongly of cherries. We also tried the flavored black Brew City Gold house special tea. They offer a good variety of teas and even tea smoothies. (I'm still sad i forgot to try one!)
The food was of fine quality and portion sizes were good. I ordered a chicken salad panini with a side of fruit. For a generally simple meal I was very impressed. The warm sandwich was rich, piled high, and perfectly grilled. The fruit tasted like it was seasoned with cinnamon, complimenting the pineapple very well.( Star ReviewCollapse )
