Oh, Ladies, My server was a brute. And for God's sake, these Neanderthals think that the water that comes out of the coffee machine is hot enough for black tea. Please boil the water! The food just wasn't special and it was money well wasted. Just don't be blinded by all the bells and whistles of the Four Seasons and skip it. You know you can trust me.
My dear ladies, Just don't go. Find someone where they really do care more about putting on a good tea. This is just an afterthought for them. Spend your money wisely.
My dear ladies, Please ignore any negative reviews about this lovely establishment. To go and sit in the tearoom is worth it all. The mismatched china, the old refrigerator, the tiny tables, the fresh flowers---this is a real tea room. The tea is mixed by an artisan who is the person who mixed tea for that dirty Prince Charles when he visited Philadelphia. The food is very, very good. However, don't order the tea sandwiches---get real food. And the desserts are scrummy (get the cream puffs). And there are lots of little shops nearby for a quick spree (and don't forget Skippack, down the road). Go, go, ladies, don't be so picky---this is an American tea house.
Dear Ladies, As a true Angophile, I was looking forward to the Talking Teacup immensely. My mostly nondrinking friends had given a good review of the place. I drink great gobs of tea everyday, brewed myself from leaf, and I know good tea. Everything here was truly average, except for their dessert, which was more like a blue child's birthday cake. When I tried to make a gentle suggestion to the proprietress, she cut me to the quick. P.S. The antique shop behind this establishment was great fun---go there and brew your own tea.
I am sorry to hear that your experience did not meet your expectations. We take great care in individually steaping each pot of tea and if ever a customer is unhappy with the tea strength or type of tea, we are happy to brew another pot or type of tea. Additionally, for dessert, which we make fresh, we've been serving a sampling of many flavors in each order. Our dessert order contains, raspberry and strawberry layer cakes, assoriated cheese puffs, tea infused sugar cookies, brownie bites and chocolate chip pound cake. All arranged in a savory sampling. I am sorry if none of those were to your liking.
