Tea house/tea room in New Haven/Hartford area?

  • 9

I'm in charge of planning a bridal shower for my very best friend, and am interested in recommendations for a place where we could do a tea party. She's in Wallingford, so metro New Haven or Hartford areas are ideal. Thanks!

  1. How about Oolong's Tea Bar in New Haven? Thats my recommendation. Its in the little alley right past the Church/Chapel intersection...near Roomba

      Actually, Oolong's has closed. It shut down in December 2006.

        Oh wow - thanks for the info. Sorry to hear.

    2. Try Mainly Tea in Wethersfield, you can book the place from 3:30-6:00 on Saturdays for a Special Event High Tea:


          1. The Tea Cozy in Windsor
            Celtica New Haven

            1. Don't be turned off by the name: Tinkling Teacups (it's a British tea room) in East Haddam...which isn't that far from Wallingford. Their full tea is a hoot - LOTS of goodies (although everything's a bit small and dainty). The scones and tea sandwiches were great. The desserts were plentiful. They have a website - I don't know the phone number.

                I was wrong about the location of Tinkling Teacups. It's 77 Main Street, East Hampton, CT.It's open from T-Sat, 11-4.
