An absolute delight! This was my first 'commercial' tea, I have been to several 'private' teas, and although I was a bit hesistant, I was thoroughly pleased with everything from the atmosphere, table settings, to the service rendered. We were even able to get some shopping done while others in our party lingered over cups of tea. The presentation of the teas and food were nothing short but 'candy to the eyes'. Although I didn't care for the green tea ice cream, its' presentation was picture pretty! The petite dessert recipes need work on. The flavors were not vibrant nor distinct enough. One didn't stand out from the other. However, the effervesant host and the entire experience is well worth a return visit. I look forward to your Christmas events!
