I went on 8/27/05. Customer service was excellent. I did not care for the leaves staying in my tea, when asked why they didn't use a tea sock, the waiter looked confused, after explaining he said it was for a bolder taste. Sometimes teas get bitter when they sit too long. After all is no for guzzling. Each tea has a steeping time for a desired flavor. The room was small but well used. However, I felt rushed, because people from the streets were coming in and standing as I was eating, it was a distraction. The meal had excellent presentation, but lacked in taste. Chicken salad was dry and chunky and the tea sandwiches over buttered. For my first experience, it will definitely e my last. However if you're interested in mixing with the locals it's a great place to chat while you wait and stare at those dinning. Luckily, we knew to call for reservations. Needless to say I've been to better.
The tea was excellent along with the service and food. The location is convenient. The only suggestion I have is a larger variety of tea. Which I'm sure will come as the tearoom grows. The tea they do have is delicious. The fruit is awesome! I will be returning in the future and encourage others to try this charming tearoom!
I'm A Georgia Girl who had to try this place out while in CA on a business trip. I loved every bit of the time I spent there. Ms. Beverly and staff gave me the most wonderful experience. I truly felt at home. I'd go back in a heartbeat just to enjoy the ambiance. The moment you walk in, every care seems lifted. I’ve since ordered 'Lady B Southern Comfort' Tea online, just so I can take a walk down memory lane. Thank You Vintage Tea Leaf for making my experience memorable for my co-worker and me.
