My mother and I went to tea here and I was very disappointed. The service was terribly inattentive, but the girl was, like, 12 years old so what do you expect. I know Julian is a small town, but if you are going to employ children in this type of a business at least teach them how to properly serve tea. And the food was not only un-original but it wasn't tasty either. If you are going to serve the same hum-drum offerings, at least find a decent recipe. And the scones! I don't really remember them because I was busy being apalled at the cool-whip they tried to pass off as a derivitive of devon. Get some half-n-half and whip up some clotted cream . . . cool-whip . . .was that the 12 year olds idea? Trust me ladies, just don't bother.
My friend and I had tea here recently and I thought it was the cat's meow! The service, food and ambiance were lovely. We had an enjoyable conversation with the owners and I look forward to bringing friends to this tea room in the future. Keep up the good work!
While, yes, the tea option is limited, I don't mind at this tea house because everything else is delicious. My sisters and mother and I first enjoyed tea here 6 years ago. We enjoyed talking with Edmond about the variety of people he had served, and their scones were wonderful. The perfect size, fluffy, and the devon is wonderful. I have returned to the Rose Tree several times since and hope that any tea lover will give it a try.
