The Shamrock Rose and Thistle Tea Room in Mobile, Alabama
Shamrock Rose and Thistle Tea Room
My experience at The Shamrock Rose and Thistle Tea Room is one that I will remember for a long time. This is an adorable tea shop that is located in the heart of Springhill in Mobile, Alabama. Upon walking into the tea house, I felt like I was walking into an authentic tea parlor straight from England.
The Shamrock Rose and Thistle consists of a tea room with a tea bar and tables for eating, a gift shop, and a lovely courtyard. The tea menu has a wide variety of teas from all over the world. The staff is very helpful in helping you choose the perfect tea for you, whether you want something energizing, relaxing, or sweet. You can order tea for one or more, and tea is served in a teapot alongside one of their homemade scones.
The experience is very authentic and it is one that I would expect to replicate in a traditional European tea parlor. You can go to the Shamrock Rose and Thistle for lunch or afternoon tea. Traditional tea party food includes tea sandwiches, scones, and of course tea!
The lunch menu consists of delicate entries and gourmet specialties. The Shamrock Rose and Thistle serves sandwiches, salads, and soups. The soups are served with a cheese scone, while the tea is served with a sweet scone. Every day, there is a different “special” to choose from, so you will never get bored with their menu.
On the right kind of day it’s wonderful to enjoy a cream tea in the beautiful courtyard. Both the courtyard and the interior host a perfect setting for a lovely bridal shower tea party or even a wedding tea.
The gift shop offers guests interesting finds from England – everything from elegant household items to English candy. The Shamrock Rose and Thistle is an adorable tea house that can accommodate a quiet diner or lunch or cater a lovely tea party. My experience at The Shamrock Rose and Thistle was a memorable experience full of delicious tea, light and lovely food, a pleasant atmosphere, and a knowledgeable and friendly staff
