Beach Bliss 5 Tea Time (last in the series)

Our last day in Aptos, how sad. Time to go home and back to reality. The only thing that could possibly make me feel better would be to have tea! Me and my gig a low stopped by Bloomsbury Tearoom in Capitola.

This tea room is a gem.

I could not believe they sat us in the Alice in Wonderland room. Could they just tell by looking at me,  that me and Alice go way back ?

Other rooms in the tea house

They let you pick out a tea cup and a hat to ware.

The cup I picked

The cup my gig a low picked

I must say my gig a low looked very dapper in is trilby plaid hat. I looked like I was ready to go to Churchill Downs in my black wide brimmed hat with a  big red rose on the front.

We orderd our tea first. I had "Mothers Bouquet Tea," my gig a low had "Irish Breakfast Tea"

I ordered the "Full Tea"

Tea, artichoke soup, tea sandwiches (cucumber, tomato, chicken, egg) fresh fruit, scones
Lemon Curd & Clotted Cream, Desserts (caramelized bread pudding, strawberry pie cup, key lime cheesecake.)
I think the photos speak for themselves. 

My gig a low had "Bloomsbury Tea"

Crab quiche, two tea sandwiches, scones, lemon curd & clotted cream
Marilee’s strawberry delight, fresh fruit garnish

This was the best teahouse I have ever been to. My gig a low says it was "exceptional." He even admitted it was a fun experience (although he does not want to do it again! LOL)

I give Bloomsbury Tearoom 5 out of 5 tea cups!

I'm so bummed I didn't get to go (car accident) but I've got it tucked away for another day!

I am sad to say my favorite tea house has closed.
