I try to keep a finger on the pulse of the tea rooms in the Greater Toronto Area, but last year's opening of The Escarpment Tea Room somehow escaped my radar. Fortunately, a friend heard about this new tea room and took me there last month as a birthday treat!
The Escarpment Tea Room is in a red brick house on the grounds of the Italian Canadian Club of Milton.
The tables were set with pretty bone china teacups and teapots.
The Canadian and British flags were a nice touch!
Our table for two by the fireplace.
We received excellent service from the charming and attentive tea room owner, Edwina.
The bedazzled tea wagon offered an overwhelming choice of teas.
Because I'm intrigued by the unknown, I selected the "Mystery Tea" by Hyleys Tea Company--a delicious black tea with bergamot and hint of sweetness. It was later revealed that this special edition tea was called "For You" and created in celebration of European Women's Day.
My friend's green tea was served in this super cute elephant teapot.
Our tray of scrumptious sandwiches with 5 different fillings, mini quiches, and veggies with dip.
The delicious dessert tray.
The small round cookies with the green, white, or pink icing on top were a blast from my past. Edwina kindly let me try another tea, Hyleys Passion Fruit Tea, to enjoy with dessert.
"Tea is the finest solution to nearly every catastrophe and conundrum that the day may bring."
Last week, I enjoyed the remake of the Anne of Green Gables movie.
Country Heritage Park which is just done the road from The Escarpment Tea Room.
Looks like we'll have to plan another Milton excursion this summer with visits to The Escarpment Tea Room and the Country Heritage Park!
