Tea room near New Hope/Lambertville

I'm meeting a client and her daughter mid-afternoon next Friday and was hoping to find a place for tea. Any recommendations in the area?

  1. Rojo's is the nicest and very client appropriate....problem is, almost all these places (including Rojo's) are coffee houses, not tea houses.

    I'm unfamiliar with any tea rooms in the area (the only place that lists itself as such is more of a place to get bulk tea).

    There's a good Lebanese restaurant, which I know has authentic teas, however, it's a restaurant not a tea house. Mahraba is the name.

    1. About 20 min away, in Hopewell, NJ, there's a place called 'Paint the Roses'. I've been by it many times but never gone in. I don't know any other tea rooms in the area.

      FYI, one of the best tea rooms in New Jersey, Teaberry's, is in Flemington but that may be too far for you to drive.

      1. The closest tea room I can think of is Teaberry's in Flemington, NJ.

        I haven't been in a few years, but if I recall their sandwiches and desserts were pretty good and the atmosphere was charming.

          There is also Tea with an Accent in Yardley, I am not sure which is closer or more convenient, Flemington or Yardley.

        2. Try Caffe Galleria. Not a tea house per se, but a family owned restaurant, in a nice old mansion.

          1. The House of Coffee, in Peddler's Village (Lahaska, PA) is about six miles from Lambertville and has a nice selection of teas. Can get a bit crowded and there's no table service, so, if you're trying to impress a client, it may not be perfect, but if you just want to talk and sip tea and have a scone or other pastry, it's perfect.

                Did not know this - very disappointing news. I still remember the first time I had coffee there. It was Guatemalan and boy, was it good!

                  A loss for the area. Always enjoyed their scones, served warm with butter and jam. And, the wide choice of newspapers and magazines for browsing. Never felt rushed. Employed young people from the area, who were always helpful and courteous.
