    Possibly the worst dining experience I have ever had! Sadly, it was on a dear friends birthday which made our time there even more disappointing.

    The Tea LadyResponded 7 days agoVan, I'm so sorry you had a bad experience. Our goal is to make every visit for our guest the best experience they can have. I wasn't there (I was very ill). I would appreciate a private call from you, or I'll try to reach out to you to see what happened, and what we can do - for such a disappointing experience. Again, I apologize. In the spirit of kindness... please forgive us. The Tea Lady!

    Lady Woods-Baylor was a most gracious hostess. The tea room was a lovely experience. The ambience was beautiful and the food was absolutely delicious. We certainly look forward to our next dining experience with The Tea Lady and would encourage everyone to make a reservation for a wonderful tea room experience.

    Owner was sole person attending the place. The locale has no store front. It’s on the 2 floor of an office building. The owner wasn’t friendly but overbearing and the price excessive.

    The Tea LadyResponded on June 23, 2022Hello Maria, I'm so very sorry your experience was not what you were expecting... sometimes we miss the mark, I understand for you the location was not what you expected but having been shut down for 2 years on Main Street in downtown Akron has been a challenge in itself; If I said and did anything to make you feel uncomfortable, please accept my sincerest apologies... I tried to call you. I'm willing to give you & your guest a Full refund. Feel free to reach me personally 234.200.5806

    Ms. Renea Woods-Baylor’s luxury tea room is the real deal! The ambiance, decor, food and presentation are top notch! You are treated as honored guests while receiving tea room history and etiquette. This is an authentic tea room with a very relaxed atmosphere. The food courses include generous delicious servings of cucumber sandwiches, scones, pastries and of course tea. We will definitely return for more!

    Celebrated an anniversary with morning tea. Beautiful table setup just for us. Was given free glass of wine with meal, that was also offered to the other table dining at the same time. 5 -Star food preparation, delicious tea served professionally by extremely friendly servers. We were casually dressed but the atmosphere is high class. Decorations and furniture truly make you feel like your in grand home. We have raved for others to experience The Tea Lady, very classy with home comfort.

Our afternoon was topped off with Renee singing happy birthday to my friend with a toast to her special day. I can say enough! This was my second time for high tea which I would recommend to everyone. We will be back!

    Sit back, take your time and, let your taste buds unfold with every delicious bit. Miss Renea delivers with the best service, as she and her staff are on hand throughout the dining experience. Her sandwich recipes are the best, bar none. If you are a true, high tea enthusiast, take the opportunity to try it for yourself. The Tea Lady will certainly be high on your list. It was certainly worth the 3-hour drive from the Toledo area.

    We had the most wonderful experience. There aren't enough words to describe how great the experience was. From the beautiful decor to the amazingly fresh food, everything was handled with love and care. The tea room was also very informative. We learned proper etiquette in the tea room without judgement or shame from the host. Renea was absolutely AMAZING. She even sang happy birthday to my girlfriend which was such a pleasant yet unexpected surprise! We are already planning our next event and plan to make this a regular outing for us and the girls. Thank you so much for hosting such an amazing birthday experience. We cannot wait to come back and enjoy your famous cucumber sandwiches! :)

    Amazing tea experience! We were welcomed by or gracious hostess, the tea lady herself and Nathan provided impeccable service. We celebrated a baby shower and enjoyed a well appointed private room for four which was perfect for the occasion. Our guest of honor is Gluten AND Dairy Free and the options provided were perfect. We will visit again next time in the Akron area for another lovely tea experience.

    Everything was wonderful! Nathan was superb!! Only thing- I did write when I made the reservation, when it asked if it was a special event, that we were honoring my elderly sister. There was no recognition or mention of it. Also wanted to hear Rene's, Midnight Train To Georgia!

    The Tea LadyResponded on February 22, 2022Debg I normally do not sing in the tearoom, only Happy Birthday songs for Birthday guest. I apologize that the servers weren't aware of your special request; - I'm not sure of how you wanted us to honor her when there was no clear instruction as a birthday, anniversary, etc.; We feel horrible that this was missed... we will do better in the future. Thank you!

    Only 2 sandwich options and one I could not eat - Cucumber does not agree with me. Other sandwich was small - no protein. Scones were very good. Sweets were nice but nothing special. I would return for the tea and scones only option.

    The Tea LadyResponded on February 22, 2022JM964 I appreciate your comment and positive feedback; Most of the time we have our House Chicken salad tea sandwich (which is very hearty) protein sandwiches, Feel free in the future to let us know that cucumbers are not ideal for you, and we will suggest another option; We are working on new menu's all the time. I will meet with my bakers to design unique deserts as well. As we grow, we will expand our selections. Thank you, so much! We can't wait to see you again...

    I moved here from California and have been to tea houses across the country from LA to Miami…never been to a tea place as cool as this! Ambiance is very reminiscent of English High Tea (according to my husband who has been to High Tea in England) and the service was exceptional. We were both full after everything and the wine and tea paired really well with the food!
