comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant. From that plant come four kinds of tea - Black Tea which are made from leaves that have been allowed to ferment; Green Tea which are steamed instead of fermented; in-between Oolong Tea which are only partially fermented and White Tea which are lightly oxidized. Any of these four basic varieties can be blended, scented, or flavored with fruit, flowers and herbs. Herbal Teas are not really tea at all because they contain no tea leaves.

Our Traditional Afternoon Teas are 2 Hours and are served in courses. Reservations are recommended especially on Saturdays.  We can be flexible on our tea times during the week.


If you cannot stay the full two hours, please let us know so we can accommodate your schedule.


For parties of 6 or more,  our Traditional Afternoon Teas (The Grand Tea, Garden Tea and Children's Tea) are served.
