    The tea lady and her staff were so welcoming. The parfait, the salad, the sandwiches, scones and others desserts were delicious. I drove from Cleveland, with my daughter, for her 15th bday. She loves a good tea experience and this one did not disappoint!

    High Tea at/with the Tea Lady was exceptional today! The table was set with attention to detail. We were seated in a small, lovely room. Service was appropriate for a leisurely luncheon with friends. The food was absolutely delicious. Chicken salad, roast beef on a croissant, cucumber sandwich, scones, fall green salad, fruit cup and sweets. All excellent! Wonderful choices of fine teas. We will be back! I look forward to trying other menu options too.

    It was a wonderful experience. My mom was visiting from out of town and has always had a love of tea so when I saw this place I knew I had to take her here. It has been a magnificent experience and we will have to come back. Amazing food and wonderful service. And of course some of the best tea I’ve had in a long time.

    We all arrived on time and found the tables were already set for us. It was an elegant environment and each course was served slowly which gave us the time to relax and converse. The food was delicious. The Tea Lady (Renee) was very accommodating.

    The table setting, the flowers, the decor were all very formal and pretty. The parfait, the very generous salad, and the tiered tray of sandwiches, scones, and desserts were fabulous. The only problem was it took over two hours with two little girls who were restless and full of tea and sugar cubes.

    No review is going to do the Tea Lady justice. The environment was warm, welcoming, quiet, and intimate all at the same time. I and my partner were the only people in the place for morning tea on the 13th for my birthday and the people working there were absolutely amazing. The service was wonderful, the tea was amazing, and the food was superb. How this place hasn't absolutely taken off yet is beyond me. I LOVE going to tea time and this was a better experience than any tea shop I have visited in Ohio, all for an extremely affordable price. If you don't visit, you are 1000% missing out. I will be going back frequently because they have me absolutely sold on my loyalty to their tea time.

    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 on August 4, 2022Van, 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!

    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.

    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! :)
