Have you ever been fooled by a beautiful decor? Well I just have!
I went to try @chaleteamerchant thinking it would be a great place to get some work done, but it was quite the opposite. Maybe the fact that the place was totally empty (and has almost been the whole time I’ve been there) should have warned me? Besides the fact that I kept my jacket on the whole time because of the very chill temperature, what really bothered me was the loud rock music playing on a radio station full of commercials. I have nothing against rock music, but in a tea place like that, I would expect something more peaceful and not so loud! I hate to say this, but @starbuckscanada has WAY better playlists and with NO commercials on them.
As for my drink, I had the matcha latte. Paying extra for almond milk when the drink I’m having is almost $5 still amazes me, but whatever. The drink itself was okay. It was lukewarm and really bubbly on top. The taste however was more delicate. The tea-rista answered all of my questions, but it did seem that I was bothering her.
My first time here, and probably the last one, too.
