Just go, you are in for a treat. Cleanest tea room ever. Soup was outstanding.
Visited in Sept. Atmosphere is lovely. Tea was not served hot, disappointing Had sugar packets on my table, where other tables had sugar bowls, would have preferred cubes. Sandwiches were fantastic. Scones were okay, but not the flavors the waitress quoted. Desserts were a this away. All served frozen and tasted like chalk. All this aside, I did enjoy myself.
All of the Clipper Merchant's desserts for our 'London Tower for Two' are fresh and homemade. Our Autumn variety consists of Pumpkin cupcakes with Maple Whipped Cream frosting, chocolate brownies with ganache frosting, lemon squares, mini cheesecakes, and fresh raspberries, strawberries and sugared grapes.
Our guests often request demerara sugar cubes for their tea, so we have them placed throughout the Tea House and one has merely to ask and our servers will accommodate.
Our tea registry consists of over 80 teas from around the world served piping hot in warmed large tea pots and it is unlimited. We also place each pot on a tea light stand with a lit tea candle to keep it as hot as possible while our guests visit and chat for hours. We also refresh the pots of tea with boiling water and will also add more tea if needed.
It is our great pleasure to serve each guest to insure that they have a wonderful experience at the Clipper Merchant. One has only to ask, and we will do all we can to make sure their time her is memorable and enjoyable. Thank you.
Perfect! James and his son were attentive and friendly. Table setting was absolutely beautiful. You have to try it! Wonderful Experience.
Visited on a recent trip to Philadelphia. Greeted at front with white glove service. Our server was excellent. The currant scone was the best! This should not be missed. Call for reservations. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. Very highly recommended.
Visited last week - english breakfast tea was so weak - did not enjoy. All 3 desserts had a colored whipped topping on top. Did not care for - would have like to seen variety. Fresh fruit cup and salad were lovely as well as the ambience.
Sally and her staff do an outstanding job of making you feel comfortable. The Tea Leaf in Waltham is a great place to come and experience the relaxing and tasteful enjoyment of the tea experience. You can't go wrong here!
Hi AnnaLisa, Thank you for sending in such a complimentary review and for taking the time to write it. I try to create an atmosphere where there is something for everyone. I am now working on my summer menu. Hope to see you in the future. Sally
