Trinity Confections: For sweets and special occasions


Every little girl (and the little girl in every adult woman) loves the thought of a traditional tea party. There is something so dignified and regal about sipping a cup of tea while munching on scones and sugar cookies. Did you know that second to water, tea is the most popular drink in the world - surpassing even coffee and soda? Tea and tea parties are traditions worth keeping, whether you are the Queen of England or a queen in New England - and the best place to find truly exceptional tea AND the best place to host your next tea party or afternoon lunch is right here at Trinity Confections in Warwick.

Trinity Confections is the inviting creation of Janine McMahon, whose gentle and calming nature is just like the delicious tea she sells. Along with her three enchanting daughters, Lily, Alice, and Annabelle, McMahon has brought a touch of proper English etiquette and elegance - with just the right amount of charm - to this unique "tea room" on Warwick Avenue.

At Trinity Confections, you will find a huge array of teas, hand-selected by McMahon for their rich flavors and tantalizing aromas; exclusively by Tea Forte and Harney & Sons. Beautifully packaged and with flavors such as English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Chamomile, Belgium Mint, and Roobius Chai, there is something for every taste. There are black, white, green, exotic, and herbal teas available here, as well as the rich coffees of locally produced Ocean Coffee Roasters. While you can have all of these teas served to you in an ultimate tea party here at Trinity Confections ~ with its china tea cups, cloth napkins and doting service ~ they are also available for sale, along with innumerable other accessories and gift ideas.

While the selection of teas are enticing, Janine is best known for her hand-crafted chocolates (made with the finest, richest imported chocolates and home made buttery caramel), home baked cookies (favorites: chocolate chip, iced spice and "teapot"-shaped sugar) and scones (chocolate chip, lemon raisin and cranberry orange), as well as her savory dishes of soups (favorite: refreshing watermelon Gazpacho), quiche and traditional finger sandwiches. Served up for tea time, these will have you returning again and again.

The best part of Trinity Confections is its parties! For any group of up to 25 people, and with an advance reservation, you will be treated to a truly unforgettable experience here. This is the most enchanting place to host a bridal shower, a mid-morning brunch or a "High Tea" to celebrate the birth of Prince George. There is simply no more unique place to celebrate life's sweetness than at Trinity Confections.

Trinity Confections is located at 1625 Warwick Avenue in the Gateway Plaza. Hours are Tues - Saturday, 11:00 to 4:00. Reservations required for all meal service. Book your next special party at 681-4902.
