September 17th, Indian Dinner Night

“Sunday September 17th is our next Indian Dinner night.”

Our Indian Dinner night features a four course meal, with all the trimmings.  All of our Indian dishes are made from family recipes and use authentic Indian spices.  Don’t worry though, we adjust the spiciness down so that you can enjoy the food and richness of flavor without the traditional burning and tears. The dishes are amazing!

On the menu, will be a delicious chicken curry (vegetarian version as well), both spicy and mild versions, accompanied by the most delicious chicken samosas around (pictured above) and followed by the most amazing dessert we have had to date… thats right, the Gulab Jamun (galob jay-man) cheesecake that we featured at the last Indian dinner. 

The Gulab Jamun cheesecake is unlike any other dessert.  You will want more…

For the trimmings, sides of mango and lime pickle (hot relish), tamarind sauce and mint chutney. Each one adds a unique flavor to each dish.

The dinner will be open seating between 5:30 and 7:30 pm.  The cost is $25 and includes all four courses and drinks.

Reservations are not required but they are recommended! Reservations – 541-902-0502

The Kingsmill Tea ~ August 6th

The Annual Kingsmill Tea

The Kingsmill Tea is our annual anniversary celebration and what better way to celebrate than with a High Tea.  

Although our little tearoom was founded in 1994, we have only had the pleasure of being the owners the last two years.  It has been an amazing two years, in which we have strived daily to raise the bar.  Not just on the food, the service, or the merchandise, but on the ambiance. That special tearoom atmosphere. We can’t take all the credit though, we owe much of to all of you. You are the reason for our success and we take great joy in being a part of everything that makes our tearoom great.

So you’re invited to the celebration on Sunday August 6th.

First seating at 12:30 pm
Second seating at 3:30 pm
It will be a traditional high tea, with four courses.  Which includes hors d’oeuvres, tea sandwiches, scones, desserts and as always a never ending pot of tea. The cost is $25 per person

SEATING IS LIMITED AND RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED

Citrus Blossom White ~ A Tea Review

It seems that each day brings it’s own challenges, ups and downs, happy and sad, sunny and dreary… Some days I come to the tearoom and my tastebuds are craving a Yorkshire Gold, A PG Tips, or my tried and true favorite, Scottish Breakfast.  Some days, however, I arrive and my tastebuds can’t overpower my emotions. Life’s challenges are just a bit to much that day.  This tea was made for that day! It’s bright, it’s cheery and it’s aroma lifts the spirit and calms the soul. 

The Review ~  This White tea has a sunny, bright bouquet and a lovely pale liqueur in the cup. Even before brewing, it’s aroma is intoxicating and energizing! China Mutan White Tea combined with corn flowers, rose petals, marigold petals, orange pieces and essence of natural oranges makes a beautiful palette, a true joy to the eye and nose! Citrus Blossom White is a perfect way to boost your mood and your health as it’s full of antioxidants and low on caffeine. A smooth cup without any bitter after tones, this cheery cup of tea is a definite pick me up! I recommend this tea wholeheartedly!

Liquor: Lovely Pale
Sweetness: Naturally Mild Sweetness
Bitterness: Low
Aroma: Citrusy with floral undertones
Taste: Fruity/Flowery, more pleasant as our palate adjust.
Cream: Not recommended
Sugar:  Use honey instead
Brewing Time: 3-5 Minutes
Temp: 190-205º F (Just short of a boil)

We are expecting our order of Citrus Blossom White any day now, so if life’s challenges are getting you down, come to the tearoom for a little sunshine and encouragement in a cup.
