You wouldn’t think to find a tea room in the middle of a popular beachside shopping mall on the Gold Coast. CreativiTea is a combination lunch cafe/tea room that specialises in High Teas, Devonshire Teas and any sweet something you may be hankering for. The extensive tea menu is bound to have something you haven’t tried, with the homeware shop on the premises stocking many of the teas. We’re lucky to have a table with a view, although it only overlooks a cafe and kiddies playground on the mall, it’s a view nonetheless. The crockery isn’t the dainty kind you’d expect in a tea room, but the fauna and flora prints and cute teapot definitely add the feminine touches. The scones are fluffy but slightly dry, if that’s possible, the Grainge jam tasty and the cream thick. Overall, my tasting companion and I decide, for the price, it could be better. If you’re in the market for a new teapot or cups and saucers, you’ll be happy with the range.
Tea: A vast selection of all types of loose-leaf tea served in a good-sized pot.
Overall: If you need tea and tea pots, this is the place.
