We’ve had over a week of scorching weather here in Northern California following a strange downpour last week, at the end of June no less! What could be better than to chill in a cool tea shop, sipping a cold glass of fresh brewed iced tea and nibbling on scrumptious little bites of sweet and savory treats.
Satori Tea Company is a little tea bar in the heart of Downtown San Jose, owned by Tori. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Tori before on our first S’mores Tea Party hosted at her tea bar and am excited to collaborate with her again on our second one to be held in August.
I’ve tasted a few of her wonderful selection of teas and a couple of her tasty morsels in past dishcrawls that I’ve participated. Since it’s still scorching hot outside, my husband and I decided to take the afternoon off for a tea experience at Satori. We were rewarded with the decision. 🙂
We first started with a cold pitcher of tea, well.. two actually. I’m partial to Ceylon tea and my husband liked the citrusy iced tea that I sampled earlier so we got both. I got my pitcher of Aislaby Ceylon and he got his pitcher of Mo Tea To (Citron Vert, lime and mint).
Next, we got a selection of savory sandwiches (cucumber, tuna and egg salad), savory puffs with goat cheese filling, english pasties filled with bacon and gruyere, and scones served with clotted cream, strawberry preserves, and lemon curd. So good!
Next comes desserts! We had warm crumpets served with melting rum butter, a slice of cake filled and frosted with almond buttercream and strawberries, red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting, a linzer cookie, and french macarons! We had rose, orange blossom, and lemon macarons. What a treat!
If you haven’t been to Satori Tea Bar, give them a try. You won’t be disappointed.
Don’t forget to check back for our upcoming S’mores Tea Party too! We can’t wait!
We’re planning on table service this time, with everything you need to make s’mores at your table, so no more waiting in line to make your s’mores. As before, Li’l Puffs will provide a few marshmallows flavors for the party, as well as premium chocolate and toppings to aid in your creations. We look forward to seeing you there!
