tara tea room @ george st., the rocks

Tara Tea Room has been on my list of places to visit for awhile now. I remember reading about it here and also here. What cute little tea cosies they have! And if you're a big fan of teapots, tea, scones, jams and a lazy afternoon of being like a nanna, this is exactly the place you should be. You can actually miss it when you walk down the road so look out for the Irish Design Shop and walk towards the back where you'll find Tara Tea Room.

On this visit, the boy and I opted for two devonshire teas. Each devonshire tea comes with a pot of tea and a plate of two scones with sides of jam and clotted cream. English Breakfast is my tea of choice with the boy opting for a pot of Earl Grey for something a bit fancier.

Plain Scones and also Cherry scones were on offer this particular Sunday.

A perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

The scones here come on the large side so I had help from the boy finishing my two. Taste wise, these are certainly the best scones I've had (although occasionally I make a pretty mean scone too!) I love the display of tea cosies (and was close to buying the one that looked like an owl) and tucked in where we were (away from the hustle and bustle of the Rocks markets), this was the perfect way to end the weekend. They also have different flavours on scones on rotation depending on the day/time of day so plenty to bring you back for another visit!

Ooh, cherry scones! But I must admit my favourite are plain ones with plenty of tart jam and a generous dollop of cream =D
