Brunch at The Tailored Tea

Yesterday I had brunch with my friend and neighbor Marie at this lovely tea room The Tailored Tea.  I was so excited when this tea room opened because I am a big fan of tea and drink several cups of it every day.  The Tailored Tea is also a lot closer to home than another tea room that I also enjoy going to in Ballston Spa called The Whistling Kettle.  

The Tailored Tea is housed inside of a restored farmhouse that was built in 1785.  What is interesting is that The Tailored Tea sits right in the back of the runway of the Albany International Airport.  It is not noisy though and is actually very quiet and serene.  The view is also really quite beautiful.

The cups that we had tea in were lovely blue and white transferware.   We were seated at a table with a warm view of the outdoor scenery.  The atmosphere inside is cozy old farmhouse charm and cheerful.  

Marie brought me some fresh herbs from her garden since she knows that I enjoy cooking from scratch.

Both of us ordered a half a pot of tea.  I had chamomile and Marie had earl grey tea.

Brunch looked extremely appetizing and was delicious.

If you are ever in my neck of the woods remember to visit The Tailored Tea.

Wow, I sure wish that I knew you when you lived in the area. Th love living in the Capital District. With Vermont and the Catskills just minutes away you get the best of the country as well as the city.
