Salle de Thé

January 29, 2011
The first thing to try at a tea room is of course tea. All of the teas on the menu cost $7. I chose a green tea called Berry Beauty which is a blend of green tea, blue mallow flowers, rose petals, and strawberry/blackberry/raspberry/yogurt pieces. The tea was served with honey to sweeten and to bring out the flavour. The tea was not bad, but the honey wasn't very good quality. I'd rather brew tea at home myself than pay $7 for an average pot of tea.

There is a variety of cheesecake flavours, some of which are quite innovative such as chestnut and black sesame. Just like the teas, the cheesecakes are $7 each. The chestnut was sold out for the day and I had already tried it last time I was here anyway, so I got the black sesame cheesecake which was a pleasant surprise. I normally don't like whipped cream, but the cream on top of the cake was so good that I actually finished it all. The cream, like the cheesecake itself, was infused with black sesame. The texture of the cake was light, almost like a Japanese style cheesecake. I actually liked this much better than the chestnut.

Dad got the creme brulee cheesecake, which I was also interested in trying. It was good too, but not as good as I had imagined especially compared to the black sesame. It was just a regular cheesecake with a torched sugar surface.

I think this is a great place for dessert and snacks, and to hang out and chat with friends. Interestingly enough though, I would rather have cheesecake than tea in this tea room.
