This tea room is in my favorite area of Tacoma, the north end. So it is a great location to spend the day. As for the business, it is the closest you can get to high tea in Tacoma. They have white tablecloths, old china, and you have to make a reservation. They are also open only about 5 hours a day, 4 days a week I believe. If you have money to spare and like wearing Jackie O outfits, you would fit right in here.
The teas here are pretty good. They have a lot of fruit flavored teas, which is not my favorite. However, they are very well made as the secondary flavors do not overpower the taste of the tea itself. Their food is good too, but a full tea service is a little expensive. I am a very laid back, jeans and sweatshirt type of girl, so I am partial to couches, conversations with the employees, and local music in the background. The only way to know what kind of tea experience you prefer is to try this and see what you think.
