Set in a lovely classical, Victorian dining area with columns throughout and lovely chandeliers, the waiter showed us the various teas from which we could select. We chose Rose Congou tea, Princess Diana’s favorite (which of course, did not influence our decision). Shortly, he delivered 2 tea warmers (a candle inside the base) and a “tea timer” consisting of 3 small hour glasses in a single device, 1 set for 3 minutes, 1 for 4 (this was perfect!) and the last, for 5 minutes. There were 4 kinds of sugar (1 was maple-flavored) to use. Soon after, another waiter arrived with a 3-tiered tea serving dish, noting we should start at the bottom tier--with the warm scones, clotted cream, and lavender-flavored berry jam—then move to the savories on the top level, and finally desserts on the 2nd tier. The tea and food was delicious, enhanced by the kind waiter and lovely ambiance.
