this stop on the tea tour was a little difficult for me. i wanted to eat cake so badly at the this little cafe but tara and i met at 9:30 in the morning, and i just couldn’t bring myself to order my all time favorite. classic vanilla cake.
here is a review of our last 3 stops:
this time i had a tea by might leaf called african nectar. honestly, it was gross. it gets a negative number, if that is possible. at first i couldn’t tell if i just didn’t like the taste because i had brushed my teeth right before i left the house, but tara tried it and exclaimed “it tastes like cough medicine!” ugh. it was so true. i drank it all but didn’t enjoy it. i DID get a lemon scone that was really good, especially with the creamy, fresh butter on the side.
this was the perfect breakfast “dessert” so i was satisfied with not ordering cake (kind of). i also got tello a large slice of their carrot cake. he loves it and orders the same thing every time we go. we are such creatures of habit.
all in all, you should definitely go to pastiche, sans african nectar. tara had a much better tea experience. read about her choice here!
