I put tea in quotation marks because what we wetr served was as far from a tea as you can get. The menu was a motley mix of fruit, mozarella and tomato skewer (???) a tiny croissant and devilef egg (again - ???). Then came sloppily cut overstuffed shrimp salad, chicken salad, and fried green tomato blt sandwiches. The shrimp salad had chunks of shrimp falling out everywhere, i cluding into my lap, ruimimg a new skirt. Dessert was a grainy (warm) cheesecake with a tartlike gel and fruit topping and the ubiquitous chocolate covered strawberry. I was hungry so ate what I could but all very unappetizing and super weird assortment. No scones or jam or cucumber sandwiched. I hate it when people try to get fancy with afternoon tea. It never works. They also kept filling the teacup halfway so three or four sips and then you had to wait for them to come around again.
The tour was all about selling us the place as somewhere to rent or stay. The woman giving the tour was nice but knew practically nothing.
We also had to wait 20 minutes to start the tour because a group came in very late and took their time eating. They should have been told the tour would go on and they could finish in time to go or just go on the garden tour.
This whole thing was ridiculously priced $44 per person with tax and "service" charge. Reynolds Tavern in Annapolis is still the best tea in the state. And only $16! Will never go to a tea here again.
