Tipple and Rose Tea Parlor set to close in Virginia-Highland this weekend

Owners have plans to move business to New Jersey 

Tipple and Rose Tea Parlor and Apothecary will close its doors this weekend after four years at its Virginia-Highland location. 

The business announced the Dec. 8 closure on its Facebook pageEater Atlanta first reported

After months of plotting and planning, we're moving to be near family in New Jersey and have landed on the decision to take Tipple + Rose with us. Trust us, if there was a way we could afford to keep it here, we would. We have been scouting spaces and having meetings in our new town, and feel comfortable with the progress we’ve made to move forward and to let you all know. Apologies for the late notice, but this is when everything finally came together.

The post goes on to site the health problems of Doria Roberts’ mother in part for the move. Roberts and her wife, chef Calavino Donati, first opened Tipple and Rose in summer 2015 at 806 N. Highland Ave. 

In addition to offering full-service afternoon teas, it also featured more than 100 kinds of brewed teas by the cup, plus bulk teas and spices, coffee alternatives, morning pastries, desserts and light fare.

Roberts and Donati also own Urban Cannibals and Madre and Mason in Midtown. No announcements have been made regarding the status of those two businesses. Donati also previously owned the now-shuttered Roman Lily Cafe. 

The AJC has reached out to Roberts and Donati for more information on Tipple and Rose’s closure and the future of their other businesses.
