Selection of Teas:

Earl Grey: A full leaf, single-estate Ceylon tea from Sri Lana, scented with 100% pure bergamot oil

Green Tea

Jasmine Pearls: Gently rolled pearls of South-China green tea scented with fresh jasmine blossoms (It’s a very aromatic cup with a lingering sweetness.)

Oolong Tea

Nantou Four Seasons: Grown in central Taiwan, it has a nectar-like sweetness and floral aroma.

Herbal Tea

Chamomile: A beloved classic with calming notes of honey and fig (The whole flowers, harvested in Croatia, have a sweet fragrance.)

Lemon Ginger: This warming, comforting, herbal blend is made from ginger, lemongrass, linden, and marigold.

Mint: This is an aromatic and smooth tea.

Rooibos: A full-bodied infusion packed with antioxidants.

The Convenience

As if our Cape Cod tea room couldn’t get any more enticing, it’s also in a convenient location in South Yarmouth, MA. That puts you in the heart of the Cape, meaning you have easy access to all your favorite attractions and things to do in the area before or after your visit to the Captain Farris House. Plus, we’re a short walk away from the Cultural Center of Cape Cod and all of their fun, year-round events! All in all, there’s no better place to enjoy a warm cup of tea and memorable social gatherings.
