Enjoy traditional English-style afternoon tea at The Tea Leaf in historic downtown Waltham, Massachusetts. This charming and inviting tearoom is a retreat for those visiting the bustling city of Boston not far away, as well as a haven for regular tea drinkers. Choose from black, oolong, green, or white teas and fruit and herbal tisanes in unique porcelain and china teapots served in accompanying teacups. Traditional afternoon tea is a three-course affair that includes your choice of tea and scone paired with Devonshire cream and preserves, assorted tea sandwiches, mini quiches, and assorted desserts. Three alternative menus are also available: Cream Tea, Light Tea, and Peanut Butter Tea. Reservations are required.
