Inside a small building in Albuquerque is a step into a fantasy novel of delight and tea. The St. James Tea Room is an escape from modern life into a luxurious trip to Old English tea and cuisine.

I came there on a Friday for my friend’s birthday. We had to make reservations because of the small amount tables IMG_9635available. When you enter, porcelain cups on are on every shelve. Then, there is a hallway of extravagant hats to wear during the experience.

Each table is it’s own private room, with floral patterned sofas and a low sitting table. Patrons are allowed to stay there for two hours and indulge in treats and tea.

The server will present different three flavors of tea throughout the visit. they will also bring a three tiered tray of delectable dishes. cucumber sandwiches are traditional and flavored butter, with dill or mint, and a nice bread are served to complement the tea. Sweets could be gingerbread, nut breads, chocolates or cookies. All are complimentary favors to enhance the experience of the visit.

As you see the food, you might think it is not enough to satisfy your hunger. This is entirely untrue; each pastry is as rich as the next, and it is expected to notIMG_4470 finish the last tier and to take it home. My taste buds were satisfied by each divine flavor it experienced.

When I want to celebrate someone or enjoy a very special treat, this is the place that knows how to make things special. This place has no flaws, as the Victorian aesthetic is perfect as well as the food. I definitely will return again for another night of dressing up and escaping the New Mexican desert.

Happy Birthday to my friend Lexi, I hope St. James was as magical for you as it was me!

Whenever I visit Erin and Quentin, we never do much by most people’s standards. We don’t see sights or go out to eat, mostly because we’re all pretty broke and all three of us are home bodies. Instead, we hang around the house and talk. Talks in the mornings on Erin’s bed when rays of […]
