This tea house is lacking in so many qualities that you would find in most tea houses...the quality of tea is average but the selection/quality of food and service extremely poor. I have been here several times (at the request of friends living in the area) and can attest that I did not get them on an 'off' day. The only thing they really have going for them is the decor...which I found charming.
This tea room is exceptional. The tea is absolutely extraordinary--I search for unique tea blends all over the world and I have to say Kings Ransom is my favorite tea...even ranking above the world renowned blends of Laduree. Additionally, the service is exceptional...and the products for sale exceptional. Overall, this is an absolute gem of a tea house in the states. Well worth the effort.
Dear Mrs. Adams - I am honored and humbled by your lovely review. I am so pleased that you love our special tea blends and that you enjoy your tea times with us. We will look forward to your next visit. Warm regards, Dale Ann
