salle de thé Tea Room is a tea, dessert, and wine place in Richmond.
Insecuregirl and I bought 4 coupons from IndulgeLiving to go to salle de thé Tea Room. We were really glad we got the coupons because our bill turned out to be quite steep. The coupons were $6 for $12 worth of food. We took CanuckGirl, FragileBoy and M with us to a little adventure down to Richmond.
InsecureGirl, FragileBoy and I ordered 3 pots of teas. They were $7 each. Their teas are quite unique and they do have a large selection. If you do have a particular taste you like for teas, you can ask them questions and they can show you which teas are good. $7 can be quite expensive for a small pot of tea, but you also get refills.
They also give you a small cup of honey if you like honey in your tea.
M ordered this blueberry and lychee type of drink. I forgot what the name was, but it was quite good and had nice balance of flavour between the blueberries and lychee.
We all shared the match cheesecake. This was really delicious! The green tea taste was amazing and it was not too bitter. Just perfect !
We ordered 2 chocolate fondues and I think they were about $15 each.
The fondue did take sometime to arrive at our table. I really couldn’t figure out why since it can’t be so hard to prepare. One of my friends commented by saying they saw one of the workers go out to buy ingredients. I can not confirm if this was true or not, but if this is so, it’s quite sad.
The items that they give you to dunk are:
- dried apricots
The chocolate sauce for the fondue was done quite poorly. It was really sweet and did not taste like real chocolate at all. It reminded us of chocolate syrup instead and it was not warm. We also looked at the consistency of the chocolate and it did not seem like it was made out of real chocolate since it should eventually harden up.
If you want good fondue, try out Capstone Tea House because it’s cheaper and its all you can eat.
The bill turned out to be $79 and after using the 4 coupons, it ended up to be around $30.
Words of Wisdom:
- Parking in plaza
- Do not get the fondue
- Cakes are good
- large selection of teas
