Daily Echo: New tea shop has wow factor New tea shop has wow factor

FINE bone china and a variety of brews are on the menu at a new quintessentially English tea shop.

New Forest West MP Desmond Swayne took time out from his busy schedule to officially open Wisteria’s within the Lymington Conservative Club in Wisteria House, Lymington.

Guests were treated to champagne and canapes to mark the occasion.

House manager Jane Faulkner said the new tearoom has the “wow factor”.

She said: “It’s a traditional tearoom with traditional service. Everything is served in fine bone china and it’s really got the wow factor.”

Bone china is all very nice, but more importantly is it proper leaf tea or naff tea-bag sweepings? Are there cakes? and if so, are they properly made? (and not those dreadful factory-made plastic imitations that we encounter in supermarkets).

Assuming positives to both questions, what a fantastic idea! We need more real tea shops, not just for sad old gits like me who long for a time long gone, but also to attract and entertain our foreign visitors (thus happily parting them from their dollars, euros, yens, etc).
