We stopped in here for a classic Afternoon Tea. We sat on the porch on a gorgeous, sunny day. Before sitting down we met a charming, three-legged, calico cat. No picture, though, he was too quick.
This was a proper Afternoon Tea, slowly paced, with correctly prepared tea. Too often, we go to more expensive teas and find that they leave the tea in the pot so the brew gets bitter. We checked that the tea was removed (discreetly) and you could tell because the tea was perfect. Kari had the house blend and I had the 1886, a blend of two teas that I didn't write down (I planned on using the pictures as a memory aid - no pictures of tea names, dangit!)
The tea came in perfectly sized pots with beautiful tea cozies to keep them warm. We gave the tea a 4.0.
I really enjoyed this tea, where as I usually tolerate them. Every aspect got a 4.0 on our scale, but I give the overall experience a 4.5, based on the fact that this tea competes very favorably with a lot of VERY expensive teas we've been to. Given the choice between this tea, and the top tea in London at Brown's hotel, I'd do this one 9 times out of ten based on price alone. If they were the same price, it would still be a tough choice, based on the differing styles.
If you like Afternoon Teas, you'll love this one. If you've never been to one, do this one first. You will not be disappointed!
