Tea Parlour Updates

9/12/2022 - The Granite Rose Tea Parlour is planning to reopen!

(PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING AS A NUMBER OF CHANGES HAVE BEEN MADE.)

With the Tea Parlour being closed since the onset of the COVID pandemic and with more recent inquiries from a number of our friends, we felt a brief note was in order to bring you up to date.

  • First we regret not being able to respond to many of the inquiries about the status of the Tea Parlour. Given the uncertainty and volatility of the spread of the COVID virus, we were not certain as to if, and when, we would be able to open the Tea Parlour again. Several times the spread of the virus subsided but then subsequently increased, raising continued questions as to what we may be able to do. A number of times we had planned on reopening but felt it was better to err on the side of being safe. We did not wish to get in a situation where the message about reopening was continually changing. We thank all for their continued interest in the Tea Parlour and hope to see you soon.

  • With that said, we are now planning on reopening the Tea Parlour in November 2022. We are initially planning on scaling back and will be open -

    • Fridays and Saturdays from 11:30 am - 4:30 pm

    • The 2nd and 3rd week of each month.

  • We will start accepting reservations on October 17th. As done previously, two seating times will be available: the first at 11:30 or 12:00 and the second at 2:00 or 2:30.

  • A change in our pricing will need to occur due to the increase of costs. New pricing for service will be posted on the website by October 17th.

  • In order to open in November, the Tea Parlour will need to hire part time staff in the following areas:

    • Assist in Food Preparation - Thursday, Friday, Saturday​

    • Tea/Table Service - Friday, Saturday

    • Dish Washer/Cleanup - Thursday, Friday, Saturday

       Daily hours vary for each position. Anyone interested in applying for any of these positions, call 410-465-9116

       or send an email to graniterosetea@verizon.net. Please note that opening will depend on our ability to hire             sufficient staff.

  • With the above changes we hope to maintain the same level of tea service that we had previously offered.
