Joanne Kates puts down every high tea in T.O,

Not every high tea, but she doesn't give a whole-hearted recommendation to any of them. The only one she likes is the Four Seasons high tea, but it still needs fixing. Windsor Arms is nothing special. What's up with that? I haven't been to high tea in a while, but my favorite was the Sutton Place years ago. They served an excellent high tea.
Whatever they serve or don't serve, at whatever locations, with whatever degree of excellence (I am not a Kates fan but I think she got it right - except why in heaven's name didn't she tell the overly quick pouring waiters "please leave the tea to steep" instead of acting helplessly ?) - IT IS NOT NOT NOT "HIGH" TEA - High tea is a working class substitute for supper served largely in the North of England. The subject of Kates' article and our concern is AFTERNOON TEA.
