My World: McHugh Tea

A good friend and I went exploring last week.
We tried a new spot for lunch --
McHugh Tea.

This is not the first thing you see when you walk in the door.
It should be!
The photos are all black and white, mostly of celebrities, enjoying a cup.
The chandelier is gorgeous and yes, those are tea cups.

I ordered a small pot of Cherry Sencha.

Cherry Sencha Tea

I forgot to take a photo of the Salad Sampler Plate before I started eating.
It was all delicious as was the lemon meringue pie.
Regular tea tastings are held in the afternoon at the bar. 
The owner dimmed the chandelier for a moment so I could get a better shot of the cups. 

McHugh Tea Shop

Plenty of tea things to look at.
Tea pots, teacups and of course, bags of whole leaf tea for sale.
Tea art and teacups made into bird feeders.

I'll be returning.
Lots more on the menu to try out -- food and tea!

Thank you to the hosts of My World
and the tea parties:

Wishing YOU well and much joy.

Dear Snap,
what a exiting and fabulous place to have tea. I really love the modern equipment. The chandelier with tea cups is fantastic. The tea cup with your Cherry Sencha Tea looks really luxury and the salad plate looks yummy. Really a sweet place. Thank you so much for sharing this nice place.
Best greetings, Johanna

I love the tea cups on the dowels, for the garden? And the chandelier in another environment might be a little much for anyone other than a tea lover.

Quite a fascinating tea room. I'd love to look at all the photos on the wall. You had a pretty teacup to sip your cherry sencha from.

Gracias Snap por venir a visitarme a Argentina, un beso muy grande.
Preciosa tu taza de té y todo tu blog sobre todo porque amas a los gatos igual que yo. Es un sentimiento unico que tengo desde niña, son mi compañía.
Un beso grande.

I see the food and forget all about taking photos. I just dig in. In my cooking class, a lot of students wanted to take photos and I jumped right in - it is nice to have a reminder.

Roses, Lace and Brocante said...

Oh I would love to meet at McHugh Tea for tea and a chat with you Snap!
The chandelier is a work of tea art - incredible.
I will suss out Cherry Sencha here - I would love to try it!

I can't imagine a prettier tea shop. Love those photos on the wall. How long do you think it took someone to source those images...holy smokes! Your tea sounds yummy. The other day I tried some Yerba Matte chai and it was out of this world good. Lovely to catch up with you again Snap, hope you have a wonderful week. :)

Gorgeous place!
I'm a coffee drinker in the morning,

So I have the best of both.
