A review of open house visit: Mullens Herbal Tea House
I am friends with Mullens Herbal Tea House on Facebook and I received their open house invite and I accepted tentatively and fortunately I was able to attend this event. We arrived there shortly after 1:00 p.m. and stayed for nearly two hours; actually we left thinking that it was almost time to close when in fact the clock on the wall had not been changed for daylight savings. We realized this when we got in our car to find out what time it actually was.
I am saying since while at the Mullens Herbal Tea House all was calm and so very peaceful that you simply did not want to leave.
When we got there we were not sure what to do. I did not believe that there was a charge and yet since we were not greeted or asked to be helped this sort of put me on the defense as if not welcome. Once I started to take some photos of the house and experience its beauty it did not seem to matter, other than that I was visiting another tea shop, tea house and it was decorated beautifully. Lots of floral arrangements, many teapots and tea images everywhere and the table spread was outstanding with sweets; delights of all kinds with offering of either Chai Spiced tea or black tea.
We went upstairs to view more of this fairy land and found more goodies with soap fairies, teapots, purses and jewelry and one room filled with tea and images of Santa and snowmen. In this room I found a lovely Christmas tea as the price was right. I also found a lovely charm bracelet filled with teapots, and other tea accessories.
We went back down to the main room and paid for our items and decided to stay and have some tea and treats. We found a corner table and added another chair to it and sat down. I was nervous but relaxed with the warmth of the Chai tea as it was very sweet and smooth and yes hot. I had two cups of this chai knowing all the while that I would pay for this the next day but in all it was worth every morsel.
I am happy to have finally visited this Herbal tea shop. I have viewed them from my Facebook page and at times I was not sure what sort of people they were. I don’t truly know but the experience was very nice.
The tea house is filled with their own brand of teas and herbs and they are rightly located in the center of Barre, MA with a Duncan Donuts, Asian restaurant, Pizza shop and several other small business shops in the area. I just think it is a good locale for business to grow since there are others in the area.
For rating this open house I would give it a five star, once I got past thinking they were not welcoming and simply dived in for the moment. Live in the moment of activities and take in the beauty offered in this tea house as the hostesses may not warm up to you right away or you to them but in time the two blend as one to getting and receiving what is needed by both parties.
Thank you to Sarah and Judy for sending the invite to my Facebook page; it was nice to meet and view your tea house. Lovely young ladies I might add.
