Teatime Tuesday

Today I want to share a favorite tea shoppe, located in the village of Intercourse, PA. It's called "Ye Olde English Shoppe" and is filled with delightful items such as tea, and English candy.

The best part however is the tea shoppe.  Beautifully decorated, tables set with Royal Doulton tea cups, bits of lace...it has a very nice atmosphere.

My Mom and I have had tea there several times, and really enjoyed it.  A few of my daughters have been there as well.

The staff are kind and helpful, and while the shoppe is very lovely and they use real china, it doesn't feel stuffy or uncomfortable. 

If you ever come to Lancaster County, I hope you will take time for tea, and that you will visit this lovely tea shoppe.

Joining Sandi @ Rose Chintz Cottage for Teatime Tuesday.  I hope you'll join us!

  2. I do love Lancaster :) I'd love to retire there if it weren't for all that snow!

    I have actually been to this little shop, and it is just lovely!

  4. Thanks, Deanna! Actually Ed and I are hoping to do a three day trip this fall sometime. Don't know exactly where other than the Bible outlet and the Shady Brady hat outlet and his cousin Jillian, who we've reconnected with in blogworld through her blog and antique etsy; they live in the area. I just can't get the geography of it out there. I need to study a map or something! I'll have to remember that tea shop!!!
    Joy!

  10. Hi Deanna,
    What beautiful china and tea things! It would be such a pleasure to have tea there.
    I am reading Amish novels these days, and many of them take place in and around Intercourse and Lancaster, PA. I have always been fascinated with these lovely Plain folk. Would love to visit there someday. Thank you for sharing this with Tea Time. And I wish you a lovely rest of the week.

    Blessings,
    Sandi
