After spending many days in England and Scotland enjoying real tea time this was a disappointment. The tea leaves were left in the pot making the brew too strong and bitter to enjoy a second cup, the scones were dry, and the savories less than expected. Anyone can put a cucumber slice on white bread, egg salad is inexpensive and easy to make, and the tiny tomatoe and slice of turkey bite size piece took little effort as well. I do more than this for guests that come to my house for tea time. The sweets did not seem freshly or homemade and were not impressive. For the price of this experience it was not one I would recommend repeating. Other tea rooms in the US do a far better job with more delicious food. There was not enough help (serving) and we had to ask for water. It seemed that it was very cost effective for the proprieter but certainly not a good value for the consumer.
I know that the food the owner prepares can be good as it is served at the London Tea Room but she did not put forth the same effort in this Mother's Day tea we observed. Mini-quiches, veggie rolls, unique and tasty savories would have done far more for a pleasurable experience. Perhaps checking out the St. James Tearoom in Albuquerque, NM would give her a better idea of a lovely tea experience.
