How we make great Tea:
we make each pot of Tea with spring water, and a generous amount of leaves.  But most importantly, we remove the leaves at the proper time, before the pot is delivered to your table, to ensure your Tea will not become bitter from over-steeping.  Not many tea houses or restaurants do this, and for this reason, they are able to deliver tea to your table more quickly.  Unfortunately, the quality of the cup, suffers.  We think a proper cup is worth a few minutes wait. :)

The Fine Print:  Pls inform your server if you or anyone in your party has a food allergy.  We cannot accommodate severe food allergies of any kind. Pls see our policy page for more info re food allergies.  We do not offer dairy-free, egg-free or vegan afternoon tea.  Because mayo and onion powder are in many of our foods, requests for no mayo or no onion, will incur an additional charge.  We never serve seafood.  Please no outside food or cake.  Celebrating a bday? Ask about our chocolate teacup bday dessert (24 hours notice needed).  We do not serve milk by-the-glass, juice or coffee (although we do have teas that are blended with coffee).  Our menu is predetermined, and as a result, special dietary requests (for example: requesting vegetarian or GF sammies, no chocolate, etc) require 3 business days notice.  While we can prepare GF, we cannot accommodate severe gluten allergies or ppl with celiac.  Certain dietary requests may incur an additional charge.  Substitutions of any item on the menu may occur without notice.  Toward the end of the month, we often begin serving the new month's flavours.  Pls order adult beverages, if any, during the first half of your sitting.  Afternoon Tea is a set package and the cost remains the same with or without a pot of Tea.  We do not split afternoon tea meals.  If you are pregnant, nursing or have a health condition, we cannot advise you on which teas/herbals to avoid; pls consult a physician.  Consumer Advisory Notice:  consuming raw or under cooked meat, poultry, dairy or seafood may increase your risk of food borne illness and pose a risk to your health.  Please see all of our policies including helpful information about teatime here:  policy page.
