Teatime <<Tea>> is a small, med-heavy role-play free company on the FFXIV Balmung server.
The Shroudrose Teahouse and Tavern is a cozy teahouse and bar located within the Lavender Beds of the Twelveswood, serving a wide array of beverages and snacks and selling their own specialty loose-leaf blends of tea. At least, that is what is most publicly known. Less mainstream is the knowledge that the establishment also serves as a front for an information brokerage and private investigations business. Secrets, lies, rumors, intrigue… what is it that you are seeking, or selling, perhaps? Pay us a visit, cut a deal, and spill the tea. Or just enjoy a warm drink and some pleasant company!

Elias Hasket Derby in 1793 commissioned Samuel McIntire to design a tea house for his country house garden just outside Salem. It was moved to Glen Magna, the Endicott Estate in 1901, and sits in a formal garden.
Despite a spring chill in the air the contemporary and inspiring Japanese garden, Kishin-en Garden, Setagaya City, has Spiraea nipponica flowering by the tea house, possibly the cultivar Spiraea nipponica ‘Snowmound’. While the spreading branches of the flowers also flowed over a wall in Osaka Castle Garden, Japan. The habit of the arching branches of this deciduous shrub are well chosen for this type of location at the top of a wall or slope.
