As I am not a tea expert I can not speak to the variety of tea or the artisy of prepartion, but I can speak to the absolutly wonderful service. I take my 5 yr old twins there about once a month and the staff is absolutly fabulous with them. We have been when it's busy, when it's slow, and everything in between and have always had wonderfully attentive service. The food is consistently great. I love being able to take my daughters somewhere with such great people and a slightly slower pace. Don't get me wrong, the servers are buzzing busily along, but you are never made to feel rushed or that you are in their way. I love it and so do they!
