Thursday was a very special day for me and my mother in law. We were unable to attend a wedding shower for Niana, so we wanted to do something special for her. Something that will welcome her into the Clements family in style. My mother in law and I adore tea and have always wanted to go to tea together. As you may recall, back in August, I had my mother in law down to LA for a tea hosted by my church. We were wanting Niana to be there more than anything, so we got the idea to go to tea with her. I wanted to find a cute tea room, one that I wish I could go to all the time. I typed “tea rooms in Tampa Florida” and Tea Rose Cottage popped up. The pictures do not do it justice. When we walked in I was floored by the sweetness and elegance of this place. The food is amazing and the desserts are to die for. We got lavender earl gray tea because Niana and I love lavender. It was delicious! I’m so finding this tea again. It felt so good to spend some time with the women in my family. Ready for the sad news? The tea room are closing December 31, 2014! If you are in the Tampa area-please go to this place and try it! You will not regret it!
