Goodies at Nectar this summer (also came with light fruit salad and delicious soup of the day:)))

The neighbouring table ordered tea for 2 and each had a scone with clotted cream and jam and a shortbread. It seem to have included 2 pots of tea.

Stopped by running errands on Wellington and decided to have the Tea Luncheon special for $12.95

It is comprised of the following:
* Soup - roasted potatoes and Onion in mini cup
* chicken and artichoke sandwich bite (on scone)
* potato tart
* salad garnish
* scone with clotted cream and strawberry jam
* shortbread (tea flavour?)
* pot of tea

The 3 savory items were tasty but more of a small sampling plate than really luncheon.

The small scone was excellent with the clotted devonshire cream and jam but I could have used a little bit more devonshire cream. I would have paid extra if it mean some extra cream and choice of different jams.

I choose the Sancha berry green tea and it was okay but not fantastic. The timer was set but when it went off, the tea barely tasted of anything so I left it in for another 3-4 minutes. Did not taste that much of berries either.

Overall the scones are the star, just a little bare boned compared with the tea and scone I had a couple of weeks ago in London where 1 raisin scone and 1 plain scone with a good bit of clotted cream and a tray of 3 different jars of preserves with long handled spoons. I traded a jar with a neighbouring table so each half of the scone had a different jam with the clotted cream yum..

The store sells Kusmi Tea which I had seen in Paris including looseleaf teas for $10-13 / 100g

Long time favorite for loose teas. As good as many I visit in larger cities. Dedicated owner. Wish them every success.

A friend and I went to Nectar Fine Teas to sit, chat and watch the world go by on Wellington St.. They were baking cookies in the kitchen, so the shop smelled wonderful. Normally I get the cookie selection (3 types, ginger, green tea and spice I believe) This time however, we both had the orange pound cake with sides of orange butter and fruit compote - YUM! The loaf was warm and we had a hard time not gobbling it up all by itself. The whipped orange butter was divine as was the fruit compote. We each had a different tea with it - masala chai for me and green mint for my friend. The teas were served in individual pots (so enough for a good 2 cups) also appropriate for the type of tea. It is always an enjoyable experience.

This is my wife's current favourite place for tea in Ottawa. It's small, but seems to have a good selection and the woman that works there is knowledgeable and friendly. I was personally impressed when I went in to buy some tea for my wife and she (without prompting) knew who my wife was and what kind of tea she liked. That, in a nutshell, is why we like to support local independent businesses.

I am new to Ottawa, and was seeking a place to find high quality loose leaf tea. A friend recommended a great little shop called Nectar in the west end. When I arrived I noticed that they were no longer all that little, and had expanded and were offering light tea luncheons, and other fresh foods from a cute menu that changes weekly. Also they do serve a great afternoon tea. The food was amazing and the service was friendly and knowledgeable. Anyone seeking quality tea and a great experience should for sure check them out. I will be back for sure.
