#881 Kitahama retro ~ a famous tea shop in Osaka

A tea shop in Kitahama

I met my friend who lives in Tokyo and we haven’t seen each other for more than 10 years.
Then, for our lunch, I made a reservation to try the “afternoon tea set” at Kitahama retro. Kitahama retro is a famous tea shop in Kitahama, Osaka. It is protected by the government as a registered tangible cultural properties.

Nice conversation while enjoying a good afternoon tea set


The afternoon tea set included a 3 tier cake stand. The bottom tier had cucumber and ham sandwiches, the middle tier had scones and top tier had a slice of cake. One drink was also included in the set. I ordered a cup of blend tea with mixed herbs.
Since I had a sore throat that day, I was worried if I would cough when I drank the hot tea. In fact, the tea was so good that it felt very smooth and gentle in my mouth. I thought the shop was using high quality ingredients.

My friend hadn’t changed at all, and was just as elegant as before. We enjoyed talking about our memories (10 years ago) and tasting the afternoon tea.

素敵なお店ねー。
お店に入った途端、別世界だわ。
こういう細々したものを、じっくり見るのって大好き。
2階に上がって、更にびっくり。
また素敵だわー。
お皿にもこだわっているし。。。
どれも美味しそうだしね。
これでお友達と話が弾んで、いつもと違うひと時。
よかったねー。(*’ω’*)

ここのお店の窓の前には川が流れていて、対岸には薔薇ガーデンが見えるの。
優雅な時間が過ごせます。

え〜と、yokoさんは細々したの好きだったかしら!?

佐倉マナーハウスに行ったことありますか?
あそこも細々として食器もたくさんあるしお茶もできます。私は好きです。
