I attended a party here recently and while the tea was wonderful, the food was very sparse, the air condioning inadequate, the attitude of the hostess was dismal , and from what I heard, it was overpriced for what you received. I wouldn't recommend this for an event, but rather an afternoon visit.
I would like to respond to your review. I am sorry that your visit was not as we would have liked, however we are in an historical building with limited air conditioning and when the humidity was as high as it was and the temps in the nineties and higher, it is rather difficult to keep the tea house cool. It does not help when guests continually come in and out from the porch to use their cell phones or have a smoke. As far as the menu and choice of foods served, that is up to the hostess of the party, some choose a lighter menu where others choose a more substantial menu. We would love to discuss your concerns further so please do not hesitate to contact us.
