I had a craving for Harney & Sons’ delicious scones so I headed to Soho for a tea break. Walking into the store, I headed to the back to the tea lounge.
After I was seated, I quickly looked over the menu and ordered the following:
Paris soda and Earl Grey ice cream tea float ($5.50). The flavors were a bit weak and it tasted watered down. I’ll have to try the ginger beer & matcha ice cream tea float next time since I was trying to decide between the two.
Lapsang Souchong gravlax on rice crackers with green tea cream cheese canapés ($8). I had this during the tea class at Harney & Sons in July. Very good.
Then finally the scones! Ham and gruyere scones with Dijon mustard ($7). Excellent. The cheddar and chive scones ($7) are equally good.
Note: Service is VERY slow, although friendly.
