I had been told about Quintin's twice in the past year, but was slow to visit. I am so happy that I finally did, and regret not doing so sooner. What a charming little tea shop, with a wonderful variety of teas. We also enjoyed a pot of tea and some scones in the delightful little back room. Quintin's Tea Emporium is lovely little oasis for a for the tea lover in Virginia Beach.
I have to rate all categories as poor because I have nothing upon which to base my review. We checked the website and called prior to visiting. Neither indicated that the tea room would be closed. We drove out there only to see a sign on the door indicating they would be closed for 4 days! This is not the way to run a small business. That information should have been updated on both the website and the answering machine. We then would not have wasted our time or gasoline driving out there - especially with gasoline prices as high as they are. A total disappointment that we will remember well before we try to visit again.
I am sorry you drove to the tea room to find it closed, we did post it on our website and a sign on the door, we did however forget to put a message on the answering machine, sorry. We had an 80th Birthday Party out of town to go to, and being a small busines we sometimes do have to close for family events, as we are family owned and operated. We hope that you will come back by for a visit to share some tea. Shari
