Overall, my friend and I enjoyed our tea experience. The first pot of tea was lukewarm, but the second pot was nice and hot! Tea bags are used rather than whole leaf. The first course was a scone and shortbread. The scone was small, more like a cookie, and it was VERY dry. Disappointing! Also, it was strange to have 1 scone and 1 shortbread and have this as the first course of the tea. The tea sandwiches were delicious--ham & cheese on a homemade little roll, chicken salad, tuna salad, cucumber & cream cheese. The final course was a delicious custard with 2-bite-size sweets: brownie, macaroon, lemon square, raspberry square, sandie. Mmm, so good! Would I return for tea, probably not, but I would definitely return for lunch and have their delicious sandwiches and wonderful desserts in this lovely old home that transports you back in time to a gentler era.
Thank you for your review and I am so sorry you did not enjoy the first course of our tea. I am glad the other two courses were more enjoyable to you. I do apologize and we would love to see you again for lunch and desserts.
Extremely disappointed in our experience. Tea preparation was 'pick a tea bag' from the contaner on the table and then a pot of hot water brought to the table. EVERY tea sandwich was served on the same raisin-cinnamon bread. Ugh! Egg salad, tuna, just don't make it on this bread. Server had dirty nails and did not hold the tea cup by the handle but by the cup itself. 18% gratuity was added on to an already overpriced tea. Major disappointment!
