如果問我這一趟出門我最喜歡的是什麼,憑我向來「好吃就是好玩」的定義,那肯定是「Betty’s Tea Room」了!

英國紅茶世界知名,英國人愛喝紅茶的程度,恐怕也是無人能出其右的了.
台灣人最常見的英國茶品牌當屬玫瑰園使用的「Whittard」,我個人覺得它包裝精美,送人體面,但茶卻很不怎麼樣.
我總是買皇家品牌「Twinings」回去送人,雖然黑色的紙包裝相當含蓄,但茶葉相當好喝,久泡而不澀.
直到認識了 Steve 爸爸,他獨鍾「Yorkshire」的茶,令我相當好奇:「這位喝茶喝了六十幾年的老道行,為什麼偏好這個牌子?」
於是我也買來試試,「Yorkshire」的茶比較濃,味道比較沉穩,有一種更紮實的味道,我個人認為和「Twinings」不相上下.
「Yorkshire」的茶在 Tesco 就買得到,去年我帶回台灣讓我娘試試,她立刻愛上,直說好喝!


「Yorkshire」的茶正是「Betty’s Tea Room」出品,一家自 1919 年創立至今的茶行.
聽說了他們不僅賣茶賣糕點,更有餐廳可以讓客人坐下用餐,享受道地的英式下午茶,於是這一趟北上,我們非得去看看不可.

我們早上 11 點多抵達「Betty’s Tea Room」位在 Harrogate 的店門口,沒想到竟然是大排長龍,隊伍都擠到了門口!
雖然不知道要排多久,但抱著既然跑了這一趟就非吃到不可的決心,我們也跟著排隊,事後證明,這條隊伍一直到我們吃飽離開的時候,都依舊是這麼長的!那還不過是個星期三哪.

「Betty’s Tea Room」的菜單設計地不錯,讓像我們這種第一次來的客人很快地就知道該點什麼 – 我叫了他們家招牌下午茶,Steve 則點了他們家的招牌 Fat Rascal.
英式下午茶的價位約 15 英鎊,包括兩種口味的三明治,一個 scone,一盤糕點和一壺茶 – 最美的是這些都是「Betty’s Tea Room」自己的產品,就從那客人可以看見的那間廚房裡出爐 – 新鮮道地.
茶,當然就更不用說了,不管你選何種口味,都是「Betty’s Tea Room」出品的茶.

三明治我選了煙燻鮭魚和小黃瓜乳酪,茶則挑了他們家的招牌「House Blend」,Steve 則選了「English Breakfast」(英國早餐茶) 來做個比較.
我們都認為他們家的「House Blend」口感不錯,很好喝,三明治和 scone 也很讚,但是糕點對我而言就太甜了.
至於他們家的 Fat rascal 還真的是超好吃,連我這不怎麼喜歡杏仁和櫻桃的人,也都相當喜愛,還買了一些外帶回家呢!

整個餐廳的設計散發著那種很英式的含蓄,雖不及五星級飯店那樣富麗堂皇,沒有雕刻或垂吊的水晶燈,我卻覺得這才是英式風格 – 就像我家這隻英國人有的 – 相當平易近人,卻也透露出不容漠視的謹慎與一絲不茍.
這樣的風格一貫地從餐具也可窺見,沒有鑲金邊的歐式華麗,就是純白色帶點曲線,但質感依然不容小覷.
