Saying good-bye to Taylor's Tea Room

This month, I was saddened to learn the closure of Taylor's Tea Room, a beloved and long-running (28 years!) tearoom in the community.

Taylor's was one of the first tea rooms that I experienced the traditional English afternoon tea with the bone china teapots and teacups. 

I enjoyed Taylor's afternoon tea so much that I returned with family and friends for afternoon and cream teas, as well as brunch, lunch, and dinner.


This photo was taken in 2015 after Taylor's renovations.

I loved the whimsical tea cozies and elegant teacups.

This pretty teacup became my Blogger profile photo.

Taylor's held a farewell celebration in their parking lot, where they sold their teawares, etc. I would have loved to have a bone china teacup as a souvenir. But I just couldn't bring myself to brave the crowds, even though I was masked and fully vaxxed. 

I'll always cherish the memories and special tea times at Taylor's.
