For them the experience of enjoying afternoon tea has the ability to erase worries and remove stresses. It whisks them away on a journey, away from everyday technologies like texting, and reestablishes human interaction. This was how Neverland was conceptualized. For the ultimate whimsical experience, take some time to enjoy afternoon tea at Neverland. Relax in one of their plush couches, marvel at the fairy tale-like décor and shiny chandeliers, and indulge in your choice of a full afternoon tea set or a half-sized demi set. Tea sets include a traditional scone with Devonshire cream and jam, a variety of finger sandwiches and pastries created by executive chef Victoria Reichert, and never-ending tea. This can be reflected in their motto: “Celebrate life’s moments, reclaim real connections, and slow the pace just enough to truly savour your very own adventure, one sip at a time.” Whether you prefer black teas or herbal teas, there’s a tea for everybody at Neverland Tea Salon. It’s a tough choice with over sixty different teas on the menu. Must-try teas for first-time visitors include their signature and best-selling tea, Take Me to Neverland, blended with a delightful mix of peppermint and chocolate. Or try Heavenly Cream, a cream Earl Grey with delicate notes of bergamot and vanilla. If you’re in the mood for something fruity, take a sip of Tinkerbell’s Kiss, made with a strawberry-kiwi infusion that can be enjoyed hot or iced. Or, if you’re in need of that extra kick, choose from their Tipsy Tea tea-infused cocktail menu. One of their Mar-Tea-Ni beverages will no doubt work pure magic.
