Last year I read a short article about a new tea salon on Åboulevarden in Århus. Tea salons are not very common in Denmark – this is a coffee drinking nation, and it is only in recent years that it has become possible to get properly brewed tea at the better cafés. Well, since both a colleague at work and my eldest daughter have visited the place lately, and talked about it favourably, I thought it was time for me to try it out.
They have a regular tea-card, a nice selection of sandwiches, scones and the like, as well as the option of ordering a full afternoon tea for 2. I had a small pot of Yunnan Golden Tips – the pot was beautiful and the tea was good, although I would have liked a slightly larger volume.
The place is tiny, seating maybe 14 people in all, and I seemed to have hit a dull spot – a table of 3 left as my tea arrived leaving only 2 other customers in the café with me, and only as I was leaving an hour later a larger group of people arrived. I’ll definitely go back for a second visit, but next time I’ll bring some company along.
