We love you just the way you are! No formal attire required. Our Garden Teas take place in a very relaxed setting. However, if you are in the mood to dress up, that works too. We recommend wearing layered clothing as our Garden Teas are held in our greenhouse and temperatures can fluctuate..

No shows really hurt! Our Garden Teas are prepared fresh, in house daily and is an item that we serve the day of for quality and freshness. The Garden Teas are not an item that can be served the next day, therefore, when someone does not show it becomes a completely wasted product. Our desire is to eliminate food waste, as much as possible, especially with the rising costs of food, plus, take into account the hours and wages spent in preparation!

Based on feedback from our guests, we understand the desire for a simpler tipping process. Please note that we do not have debit terminals available in the Garden Tea area as all transactions are prepaid.

We are committed to providing excellent service for our garden teas, and your satisfaction is our top priority. If, for any reason, you are not completely satisfied, please inform us during the garden tea experience. We will promptly refund the gratuity back to your credit card, and additionally, we will provide you with the original gratuity amount in cash. Your feedback is invaluable, and we appreciate the opportunity to make it right.
