Over the long weekend, my mom found a fun way to celebrate a be-lated birthday of a close family friend who was in town for Memorial Day. She found a wonderful tea room in Dayton that’s rated no.1 in the state of Ohio! We do love our tea, especially after living in England for so many years…there’s nothing better than scones and clotted cream! YUM! My mother-in-law is also in town visiting for a few weeks from London and was able to join us so it ended up being a fun girls day out!
The tea room is called, “Basically British” and I’ve included the menu for June below for you to check it out for yourself! This would be a great way to celebrate a special event, birthday or even baby shower (my mom did my baby shower at a tea room in Milford and it was pretty special – something a little different and I LOVED it!) They have a great website with additional information if you think you’d like to try it out!
Here are a few pictures from our visit – the owner served us himself, a native Brit who has lived here for the past 35 years…trust me when I say it is a truly authentic afternoon of tea! There was 6 of us that went, and each of us got to choose our own pot of tea from a menu of dozens of different teas! Each pot was enough for 4 cups of tea so we were all able to taste the 6 different flavors. I chose a mango swirl tea that was delcious and my mom even bought me some to take home because I liked it so much!
