only experienced this at one restaurant within the city or anywhere I have
travelled - within the province or outside.
I have eaten at a local restaurant twice in the past month - both times with
different friends. I am a tea drinker - my friends are all coffee
drinkers. When I want more tea I usually ask for a fresh cup so I don't
have to pour the hot tea into the cold tea left in the cup.
This restaurant charges $2.50 if you ask for a fresh cup as they give you a
new tea bag. I do not follow the logic as they do not charge for the coffee
and it costs them to make the fresh coffee. Tetley tea - 516 for about
$8.00. (roughly 15 cents each - retail). When I asked our server last
night she didn't know anything about it but when she came back she said you
can use Bag # 1 as many times as you like. It's that second bag that costs
you the $2.50.
I was wondering if anyone has experienced this in any other restaurant. In
the past month or so we have had a lot of company and have eaten out a bit
more than usual. We have eaten at the Gypsy Tearoom, Blue on Water, The Keg,
Pier 17, Swiss Chalet, Boston Pizza, The Cellar, The Tea Garden (Holyrood)
and a few others. I have never been charged for a second cup,
Tea drinkers, if you have a minute could you please share your experinces.
