[Eating Out] Mossgreen Tea Rooms

“Well known Antique dealers, Moss Green, have opened a tea room on High Street, Armadale. Whether is a quick bite for lunch or high tea, it's the place to be.”

[Eating Out] Mossgreen Tea Rooms

With my parents involved in the antique business, the name Mossgreen was a name I’d heard many times before. To hear they had opened a tea room was news that interested me rather than antiques and auctions 😛

On time of visit, Mossgreen Tea Rooms‘ liquor license hadn’t come through yet, so we weren’t able to sample the Champagne High Tea ($65 per person); so we happily settled for the Mossgreen High Tea ($48 per person). 

With a fine selection of T2 teas on offer, your biggest decision of the day will be which one you want to drink the most. I went with the Mossgreen Signature Blend, it was interesting, and reminded a few of us of tom yum soup strangely enough. It got quite strong towards the end. It wasn’t really my cup of tea 😉 Normally I’d go for a Earl Grey to go with High Tea.

Coffee is Lavazza Super Crema, and milk is by Joneys Dairy.

Mossgreen Tea Rooms is set on the upmarket High Street in Armadale. Surrounded by a vast range of antique shops, homeware and bridal boutiques. It makes for a lovely place to stop for a bite to eat or a coffee in a bright, elegant setting. With breakfast, lunch and high tea menus designed by Peter Rowland, you are in for a treat.

    It looks amazing and pricy. But I’d try it anyway. It is good to experience different things.

    Just seeing the name Armadale makes me smile. When John and I were building our house in Wodonga, we couldn’t decide anything. My American taste and his Aussie taste clashed everywhere. We went to Armadale looking for a chandelier for our dining room.

    After about what felt like 30 shops, I looked up and said, “I don’t hate that.” John said, “I don’t hate that either.” So we bought it.

    I’d love this high tea!
