Yum! What else can you say about a delicious spread of tea sandwiches, scones, and gorgeous chocolates. I've never seen a longer list of teas.

They look to good to eat...... My wife always buys me a sampler pack of the dark chocolates for special occasions and I always have a hard time taking the first bite because they look so good. The taste follows their looks very well and I am never disappointed. Stop in and smell the great chocolate aroma for yourself.
