I recommend that you check out this tea room in the evening -- it's far too busy during the day, especially around noon. Whenever I've gone in the evening it's been a very low-key, relaxing experience with excellent tea. Their afternoon tea service is very nice. The pink-haired waitress was lovely.
They kept their tea in glass jars -- not very good for storage. They advised me very poorly on preparing the tea, even with the little card they hand out.
When you enter our store you will notice that our tea department is kept darker than the other parts of the store, and if you ask you will know that the turnover on the jars is high, they are not always filled full especially the greens and oolongs. We stock around 100 teas which is an amount that can be moved quickly so it does not sit around a long time. We also now have instructions very specific to each tea on the package. If we are training a new staff person to talk about steeping tea you are always welcome to ask someone else here.<BR> <BR> Next time you come in please let us know what you were advised and we can respond to whatever was a problem for your steeping.
Absolutely amazing, I will never stop coming to this adorable tearoom. It's so, so fabulous. Everyone gets their own individual china teacup that's different from the rest from the owner's own personal collection. I love sitting by the doves in the window!! The prices are VERY reasonable for the quality of food you get, and the amount! The tea is great -- make sure you get honey with your tea! The little honey server is to DIE for!
