I visited this Map Room Café last year and thought to stop in again and purchase another sampler tea bag of Harney & Sons Tea. I purchased their Pearl Jasmine Tea (single silken sachet). I hope it will be as depicted by other tea reviewers; since all have said wonderful things about most Jasmine teas.
The Map Room Café seems to always be busy with folks either ordering or seating idly reading the paper or a book. And the side room where the Catered Affair restaurant is found seemed busy as well. I have not been in there, but can see into it.
These are all great landmarks of Boston, Massachusetts to be treasured and enjoyed by tourists as well as those residing in this state.
I took great pain to know they had raised the price of the tea bag; as I paid I asked the cashier if it was not less last year and quoted the price and she gladly confirmed this.
Quality is the same but the price is higher. I should note that the weather was lovely. There is a courtyard to be found outside of the two buildings connecting the library or should I say that comprises the library. The courtyard has a lovely water fountain, and plenty of Italian statues and columns. It is lovely and one feels or should feel privileged to be in it.
