Tea is one of the most popular beverages in the world, second only to water. More health-conscious Americans are turning to tea, rich in polyphenols, natural plant compounds with potent antibacterial and antiviral properties. In addition to warding off cancer and heart disease, tea may boost the protective powers of the immune system. Drinking tea increases production of interferon, a substance known to play a key roll in protecting the body against infection, plus there’s nothing like the relaxing and elegant ritual of tea with dainty sandwiches and delightful sweets with friends and loved ones.  At our restaurant, located a bit east of Niagara Falls and Buffalo, we pride ourselves on providing a world class Afternoon Tea in Western New York.
