The South Bay Ladies’ Tea Guild recently enjoyed the Demi Tea there. One of the group had a food allergy to nuts, peanuts and sesame, and Victoria re-worked the menu to make it nut-free. The Guild ladies were also happy to discover that the pots of tea are served already brewed, with the tea decanted into a second, warmed teapot rather than left to sit on the tea leaves. This is a big improvement in tea service, because it ensures that the tea doesn’t over-steep and grow bitter, and Satori Tea Bar is possibly the only tea parlor in San Jose that does this!

The Guild ladies enjoyed a selection of teas, including Earl Grey Creme black tea, Kyoto Cherry Green tea, a Pineapple Mango black tea and a Strawberry Red Tea blend. The food was served on a three-tiered server. The raisin scones were served warm and were lovely with the locally-made cranberry preserves, clotted cream and honey. The sandwiches and savories included cucumber and cream cheese, goat cheese and arugula, and egg salad sandwiches, and a peppery ham and cheese pasty. The Guild ladies were served personally by the owner, who was attentive and cheerful.
Satori Tea Bar is an artistic, stylish shop decorated with a combination of modern art and antiques, that creates a welcoming atmosphere for all tea lovers. It is a place where young and old, male and female can come to enjoy a cup or pot of great tea, without being surrounded by lace and ruffles, and yet still experience elegant things.
