I feel horrible to have to give a tea room a lack luster review. However, lackluster was my experience. My tea was a strawberry blend I thought would be fun, instead it tasted like rotten fruit steeped in dirty water. I love tea, drink it 2-3 times daily and am not a picky person. I was surprised to hear others comment about bringing their children because I've never been to a tea with children, it's just not a place for them, however, on the day when we were there, there was a baby and other children and the baby cried the entire time. I was embarrassed for my group because this was my neck of the woods we were visiting and instead, we couldn't wait to get out of there. It was crowded, noisey and lackluster. The building was beautiful, but I couldn't explore it because as I left the room I was in, I was kind of ushered outside by a man greeting in the hall. If I go again, it will be a long time until I do.
Our group visits many tea rooms. We have had several wonderful experiences, but this one topped them all. Blanche was an amazing host who took care of us very well. The food was filling, yet light and positively delectible. The room had many visitors besides our large group and I can tell you, it did not feel stuffed like in other places we have visited. My favorite of the foods was the tropical scone and fruit tarts, but the tea was so good this time, I'm planning on a visit with a friend for a visit again soon. I will always reccommend this wonderful place for tea!
Today, my friends and I visited tea on the Tiber and had a great afternoon. The food was good and the tea was excellent. I had the Silver Rain and Ginger Peach and loved it. The only complaint I think anyone had was that the napkins were paper. It was great atmosphere and we were greeted by a lovely lady not sure if she was the owner/manager etc. but she did say that they were interior designers (they can decorate my home anytime!!). I felt the items they sell (all tea related) were tastefully dispersed amongst the rooms as if they were decor. The tearoom is definitely their main focus. I will definitely be back again!
I went today with some old friends and some new ones and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I bought some items from the gift shop and I loved it. Can't wait to go again. Our whole party was happy and there was 7 of us.
