Does anyone know of a good tea house in the Dallas Area?

Two years ago I studied at Oxford University for the summer, and as a result, I am quite hooked on English style tea houses. If anyone knows of any good places in Dallas that serves a wide variety of teas and accompanying pastries/sandwiches, I would really appreciate it if you would let me know.

If there aren't any good tea houses around, I would settle for knowing about a good pastry shop where I can get pastries to enjoy at home with my tea.

  1. I don't know how current the information is but I thought you might find this useful:

      1. I'm not sure if it's authentic, but there is a tea house in historic downtown mcKinney called the Lavender Tea Room.
        i haven't been, so i can't give a rec.
        here's the link

          I second the Lavender.
          Three of us went there in the spring and had a very nice
          lunch with interesting teas.
          I don't remember if they serve High Tea, though.

          1. The Adolphus hotel in downtown has a very nice English style afternoon tea. However, you'll have to wait until the fall, as it is seasonal from September through June. It is worth every penny!
