I finally went to have tea with my friend Steph at Windsor Arms! I've read some reviews while researching and was super excited to go. Although I had a fun time, the tea menu was a bit underwhelming. Our reservation was at 5:30pm on Sunday. We were a little early so we walked around the hotel to take pictures. We saw that there was a table of girls having tea that were wearing really pretty hats! Me and Steph felt underdressed haha
Seems like there were 3 different tea rooms. The room I was in had black walls with white accent pieces. The room that led to it was mostly cream colours. And I saw another red room.
To be honest, I'm quite a noob in drinking tea. I just randomly selected one that's called "Once Upon a Tea" The taste was quite interesting. There was chocolate and mint in it. I think I preferred to add milk with it though.
We ordered the Complete Tea. The first tier includes the "Petite Fours" They looked really cute, but I don't think they're awesomely amazing. The second tier are the sandwiches. My favourite one was the Smoked Salmon and Wasabi Sour Cream with Salmon Caviar. I was expecting that the looks of them would be even more delicate :S The last tier includes the scones, which I'm not a big fan of anyway.
Towards the end of the tea time, we were served with the "Berries with Whipped Cream" which really was nothing special.
Me and Steph being silly! ;P
Overall, I think it's quite over price for the food. I went on a sunday so it was weekend price. If you work around downtown, it might be a good idea to go during weekdays to save a few bucks :) We are planning to go to Old Mills Inn to check out their Tea Time next. I'll let you girls know my thoughts after!
