You don’t have to be Brit to get a genuine high tea experience anymore.
Tucked into the city of St. Louis this tea room, opened by homesick Brits who had a vision to open, and keep open, a tea room like those from back home. And this is some genuine English tea.
With a cozy atmosphere and friendly, silly staff (who make Mr. Darcy of Pride and Prejudice their employee of the month) this is a high tea that is true to their motto of “not prim. Not proper. Just bloody good tea.”
There are endless options for the type of high tea experiences patrons desire. From the large afternoon tea made up of one scone with jam, Devonshire cream, two tea sandwiches, assortments of small cakes and your choice of tea or the smaller “wee tea” made up of one English scone with jam, Devonshire cream and your choice of Earl Grey, English Breakfast, Assam, Vanilla, Ceylon, Irish Breakfast or The London Cuppa, there are many options for patrons.
But, one thing, “paper cups are, as they have always been, of the devil.”
