Tipple + Rose Tea Parlor and Apothecary is quietly nestled in the bustling Virginia Highland neighborhood of metro Atlanta serving afternoon tea featuring their housemade scones, light lunch bites and after dinner dessert in an antique filled modern urban oasis.
Tipple + Rose Tea Parlor and Apothecary was conceived and opened in July 2015 by musician Doria Roberts who wanted to create the ultimate urban escape. The eclectic but cozy vintage and antique filled parlor serves over 140 teas and tisanes, afternoon tea, housemade light bites for lunch, a wide array of locally made desserts and Doria's sweet and savory scones. The shop also was recently ranked third in the US by Travel + Leisure in the April 2018 issue and number one in Atlanta by EATER Atlanta..
With a focus on whole body wellness, the apothecary/retail space houses handmade and Tipple + Rose's housemade small batch bath and body products, tea making accessories, small hostess gifts and mercantile, artisanal foodstuffs, organic bulk herbs and spices and over 15 kinds of honey.
The one of a kind tea sniffing bar allows you the time and space to revel in your senses and choose the perfect blend to sit + sip or purchase by the ounce to enjoy at home.
And, if you're looking for a unique gathering for your birthday, baby or bridal showers, we have you covered with perfectly curated afternoon tea parties.
So, whether you're looking to catch up with friends or just yourself for a little "me" time, Tipple + Rose has a little something for every mood or occasion...

What is High Tea? When is it served? How do I reserve?
WHAT IS HIGH TEA?
First, “High Tea” is a bit of a misnomer. The tea time Americans call “High Tea” is properly known as Afternoon Tea in Britain where it originated (or in France depending on who you ask!). But, we’ll be using the term High Tea to avoid confusion. High Tea is actually a late day meal or “supper” served at a high (tall) table and was mostly enjoyed by the working class. Afternoon Tea is also sometimes called “Low Tea” because it’s served at a low (short) table and it mostly enjoyed by the upper class..
The ritual of Afternoon Tea/High Tea has been around since the 19th century and is a cultured mid day meal taken with tea. Our service includes:
SAVORIES (i.e. traditional tea sandwiches like cucumber arugula boursin, egg salad or smoked salmon, boursin and arugula and, sometimes, quiche)
SCONES served with authentic clotted cream, jam, and housemate lemon curd
SWEETS like macarons, tartlettes and fresh fruit
DIGESTIV of local sorbet and local kombucha, a fermented tea drink.
CHOICE OF TEA We have a selection of over 140 teas and tisanes to choose from.
It is all served on a three tiered cake stand with vintage fine china, glassware, and table linens.
Our scones, pastry cream, lemon curd, and finger sandwiches are all housemade.
WHEN IS HIGH TEA SERVED?
The traditional time frame for Afternoon Tea/High Tea is 2:30-5:30pm, however, we serve High Tea Wednesday through Saturday starting between 11:00am-3:00pm and on Sundays and Tuesdays with High Tea reservations starting anywhere between 12:00pm-3:00pm.
Saturdays and Sundays are our busiest days and we often sell out 5-8 days prior so please call as soon as you think you want to come in.
HOW MUCH IS HIGH TEA AT TIPPLE + ROSE?
Traditional High Tea is $25-$40 + tax per person depending on the menu you choose. Please see the menus on the high tea menu page for choices.
HOW DO I RESERVE MY TEA TIME?
Reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance and at least 48 hours in advance for Gluten Free or Vegan requests and specialty menu requests. Please go to our reservation request form page and fill that out.
What to expect during my visit?
If you are coming in for high tea you will have full table service and will be sent a detailed confirmation e-mail regarding your visit.
If you're a walk in customer, you will order in the back of the shop before taking a seat and we will bring your order to you and bus your table. Creamer, sugars, water, etc. is self serve in this case.
While we don't permit children under 5 (including infants) at high tea, children are welcome. Unfortunately, we do not have high chairs available and children are not permitted on the vintage furniture and should be supervised at all. times.
If you are a walk in customer, seating is first come, first served and there is a one hour limit on tables from 11:00am-3:30pm on Saturdays and Sundays if you do not have a high tea reservation. There can also be a wait of 15 minutes up to an hour on the weekends if you don't have a reservation.
