We spotted Secret GardenÂ the very first time we were going to Tokyo Thyme.
It was a tower of pastries attracted our eyeballs, hehe.
We love its name. Perfect match for a fine tea place.
We have reserved a table. Very excited.
It’s comfortable sitting there though the little dresses hanging there looked a bit awkward.
Teacups look good but very old.
Their tea menu.
White sugar cubes~It’s been a long time since the last time we saw white sugar cubes.
We always have an urge to add these to our tea but there was a huge fly enjoying the sugar.
Their teapots are very lovely.
Afternoon Tea Set
Sweets – Lemon Pies, Strawberry Cakes and Chocolate Mousse.
Sweet Scones and some other loaves of pastries.
Savories – Ham Croissants, Poppyseeds Sandwiches with Green Pepper and eggplants and Finger Sandwiches.
The food was very disappointing.
Maybe S usually has a high expectation over afternoon tea, but about half of the food fells into the categories that S wouldn’t want to try again, and the rest was just ok…Therefore, I believe it’s not about expectation.
The tea and the ambience are good though.
It might not be their fault that there were a fly playing around but it’s absolutely their fault that the food is not fresh and dainty.
That was our worst experience of afternoon tea.
