Tea With A Friend


I had the pleasure of going to tea with a dear friend on Wednesday.




The food was delicious (as it always is at the Tea Trolley in Delta, PA).

We had a crustini with a sweet tomato relish, a ham with orange marmalade, and a chicken salad with grapes.  The desserts were a little chocolate cup, a carrot cake, a raspberry bar, and cookie egg nest.  My favorite always are the vanilla scones, with clotted cream and lemon curd.

We enjoyed our time, chatting about many things going on in our lives, and enjoying the beautiful tea room, and of course the food.

I'm thankful for the friends God has given me, they are the sisters I never had!

What a perfectly lovely way to spend time - tea time with a friend. *Sigh* How wonderful.

Hope you have your next one together all lined up. Springtime teas are the BEST! ♥

Sure be nice if one day we could meet for tea. Please let me know if you are EVER in the Columbus, Ohio area - I will treat you to tea here! Hugs!

OMG... Tea with a Friend is always special ... Personally, I can remember an instance with tomato relish and ham
... It was YUMMY... but your orange marmalade would have made it even better...Sometimes intimate meeting are better than planned tea parties.... Your rendezvous sounds like the real thing..... xoxoxox

Looks like a wonderful place, maybe I'll get there sometime soon!

To Michele from Columbus, Ohio...my favorite places are the Kelton House in downtown Columbus, and the Morgan House in Dublin.

A lovely afternoon tea is the best way to catch up with a friend! I'm in a mini egg phase so I was intrigued by the cookie egg nest dessert. I also think that I have a teacup that matches the teapot with the yellow rose in the first photo. Thanks for the visit and Happy Easter!
