First Impression: TeaHaus is located a block off of main street in Ann Arbor.
Tea Room Setting: Eight tables that seat four people fill the restaurant side of the TeaHaus. The gift shop offers several stools at a counter facing the window and a comfy seating area.
The Table: We were seated by the front window and enjoyed watching the people passing by.
Tea: Over 180 loose leaf teas are available. The tea was properly prepared in unlimited pots. Priscilla and I enjoyed four different teas.

Tea Tidbits: The first course is a soup. We had a mushroom soup infused with Puehr Tea. I loved the little lidded dish. Shortly after we finished the soup course, our tiered server arrived.

The middle tier held two scones with four spreads. The traditional scone is from her Grandmother's Welsh recipe and it melted in your mouth! The other was a pear and cinnamon scone. The spreads included clotted cream, a berry compote, orange marmalade and lemon curd. All were very good and offer options for specialty diets.
The top tier held the sweets, a French macaron with a champagne and elderflower reduction filling, Earl Grey dark chocolate truffle, lavender shortbread, and a green tea matcha petit four.
Entertainment: Soft contemporary music played in the background. The front table enables people watching.
Gift Shop: The gift shop features the wall of tea, as well as many contemporary teapots, cups, mugs, and tea accessories.

And have you ever seen a "Fairrium"?
Many herbs and teas are used in her menu items. It is nice to enjoy tea on a plate as well as in a cup. The owner, as well as her staff, were very knowledgeable and happy to make suggestions. Priscilla and I had a wonderful afternoon tea.
Of course Priscilla wanted to visit the University of Michigan. We drove past campus and on our way home she spotted "The Big House". She insisted on a photo!
On the long drive home, she spotted some Canadian Geese.
May your cup of blessings always be full!
