I was excited to try this tea place with my family as it's the only specialty tea store in town... And the reviews have been decent.

Ordered 2 types of teas and the staff member was very helpful and knowledgeable about the different teas. Service was great and even gave free hot water top ups.

The pastries on the other hand could have been better. I ordered the scone and it came out warm, but not baked. I think it was reheated in the microwave which really ruined the texture. I wish it was reheated in a toaster oven perhaps. Unfortunately it took away from my afternoon tea experience.

With various blends to choose from including, black, herbal and rooibos this is a great little tea shop. You will be hard pressed to find this tea throughout the rest of NS (we found out the hard way) so if you want this for a gift or yourself, add this to your travel itinerary.

We have visited this delightful place a couple of times to shop for tea. This time we decided to stay for afternoon tea.
They were offering a special of a tea choice with apple cake. So we all ordered the special and all had different kinds of tea.
This was such a great treat. The person serving was friendly and the place is immaculately clean. Even the washroom was immaculately clean.
This is the off season so it was not very busy and plenty of tables available.
The place is bright, cozy and warm.
This a perfect place to enjoy a tea break while you enjoy the delightfull smell of the place.

A great place to visit and it is just one hour drive out of halifax. We loved it.

Stopped by for a chai latte based on recommendations. Unfortunately the mix made by owners had run out and they will be back tomorrow. The shop is full of interesting teas in gallon size jars arrayed around the shop and we'll check them out tomorrow.

So sorry you missed our Chai Latte.
We totally ran out after the big Scarecrow Festival. Unfortunately we were unable to make more until late yesterday. We have it now.
