Tea Time Thursday #13 Tillamook

I saved my blog post from last Saturday for my Tea Time Thursday today! We went to a delightful tea shoppe in Tillamook OR~ La Tea Da. Two friends have been running it for 13 years and the high tea is just fabulous. The food is yummy and the offerings are wonderful, as is the presentation.
The building is just plain but once you step inside, you are in another world. Is there anything more delightful than tea time with friends?

The sunlight was streaming into the tea room, so it was a bit tricky to get good pictures. Natalie and I are just admiring the goodies, the flowers, the tea cozies....just everthing.

Here's my other two special friends...Ann and Nancy! Don't you love the smiles on our faces?

The high tea presentation! Each of us got one of these lovely tea time towers...I do believe we could have split one with some pots of tea and been quite satisfied. We all took home a doggy box!

I loved the little sorbet cups. Nancy and Natalie brought us some little tea time treats.

The table cloths were just beautiful and I loved the heart shaped tea strainers. So pretty.

We had a great time, very relaxed and well worth the trip to the beach. If you want to have tea at La Tea Da' better do it in the next year. The friends are retiring after many years of hard work. They would like to sell the business, but they are not sure that will happen. So enjoy it  before it's gone.

My favorite tea room!!!! What a wonderful time you had! It is an amazing place.

I didn't know they would be retiring. I hope they find someone who will carry on. It would be very sad to have it close. :(

Thanks for this post! I am going to share your blog link with tea friends!

Happy day to you! Sunshine, right?

I love having tea here. Now I am sad it might be closed. Thanks for the heads up, as I must go one more time. Even my husband loves having tea here.
