Cupan Tae: a tea room in Galway, Ireland

Cupan tae outside

Anthony (my husband) & I went to Ireland with our friends Nick & Kathleen. This turned out to be the perfect combination…we got to travel as couples, and we got to ditch the boys at a pub to go to a tea room! As soon as I walked past Cupan Tae I knew I HAD to get in there.

So in we went. First, it was just as cute as I had hoped! Second, good thing we left the guys at a pub! The pink rose curtains aren’t exactly the dude’s favorite decor. Kathleen & I sat down to take a look at the menu. We discovered an afternoon tea sampler option and just had to try it. First we tried a traditional Irish breakfast tea.

And for our second cup we had a Galway cream tea, which was similar to Stash tea’s vanilla nut creme.

This tea is sweet without any sweetener, but makes an excellent dessert with a little cream and sugar. Speaking of cream & sugar…imagine our excitement when this tower of treats showed up at our table!

Yep, tea sandwiches, scones, and desserts. All of these and two different pots of tea — we were in tea time heaven. I’m pretty sure I was acutally giggling with excitement.

Tea & Scones

Wouldn’t you giggle with delight to see this cute container of clotted cream, raspberry jam, butter, & scones? I love tea, but I equally enjoy all of the treats that go along with it! Did I mention there were desserts too?

Don’t worry, we saved a few sandwiches & desserts to bring back to Nick & Anthony. The guys got their Guiness & cake too.

So, after sharing all of these goodies, what is your favorite tea time treat?
