Do you miss getting high tea and reminiscing with friends? Do you miss freshly baked scones and cut out sandwiches? Although you may not think Jerusalem has many high tea places (and you are right) Koom room beit té, delivers. And delivers great. Personally, I am a big fan of high tea, the serenity, the atmosphere, the feeling, so I was stoked when I found this place. This teahouse offers a variety of teas from a small business in the north of Israel, I've had both the white tea and the lavender and red fruit tea. Both, in my opinion, were very light and sophisticated. The staff at the teahouse will refill your tea as much as you would like. You can order a tower of small snacks that accompany the high tea for 125 shekels, it's written on the menu that it's for two but can easily feed three. The small sandwiches come on multi-grain bread and there are three options: egg salad cream cheese and salmon, and another spread. The scones are very authentic and delicious and the small desserts are also quite tasty. The teahouse also has many other food options which I did not order so I cannot comment, whenever I very much recommend the tower accompanied with the tea.
Overall I had a wonderful experience and I have been twice, the atmosphere is beautiful and very peaceful and the service is effective as well. Absolutely recommend for anyone who is looking for a different type of activity or to find a small taste of England in Jerusalem.
