Though there are subtle differences between "High" and "Afternoon" Tea, they have evolved to be used interchangeably as restaurants have found it easy to put the two in the same category for advertising purposes.

Today, tea is enjoyed as an occasional indulgence, a way to catch up with special friends, and is used to celebrate special occasions.
Whatever the reason for tea, you can expect to delight in a lovely and cozy setting in which conversations flow easily, dainty sandwiches, premium loose leaf teas, and fine pastries are savored, and time is enjoyed with friends and family.
I am so excited to announce that we have a proper tea service here in Reno that can be found at Bouchee Confections, a craft chocolate shop created and owned by Natalie, a passionate local chocolatier/pastry chef that's trained in France and has years of experience working in restaurants.
Using quality ingredients, special training, creativity, passion, and patience, Natalie concocts multi-layered desserts and craft chocolates for the main part of her shop, specials throughout the holidays and seasons, and special pastries, finger sandwiches, and desserts for her High Tea service.
If you want to indulge and celebrate life, and you want to do it in style and class (with Bridgerton-like music playing in the background), Natalie's High Tea service is a special experience that will make any day and occasion special, with beyond delicious finger sandwiches, pastries, the perfect accompaniments, and desserts that will keep you coming back for more.
What to Expect at Bouchee's Tea Service
My service came with:
*Bottomless Premium Loose Leaf Tea
One flavor per person
*An Assortment of Fine Pastries and Desserts
My service came with lemon curd and raspberry jam. Both were so addicting and when added onto pastries with clotted cream, became an explosion of flavor.
*A Mix of Lovely China and Teapots
Bouchee Confection's Teapots and Plates are absolutely cute and adorable. These touches make for a fun and charming experience.
*Natalie does custom orders
*You have two hours to dine for High Tea
