SereniTea Wednesday

Afternoon Tea at Sweet Remembrances typically begins with a fresh salad. Today, for SereniTea Wednesday, we served a strawberry salad sprinkled with walnuts and drizzled with a sweet poppy seed dressing. After the salad, the three tiered tray laden with goodies appears. 

We like to vary the assortment of sandwiches.  Today we served rolled asparagus with a honey curry mayonnaise.  There was an egg salad sandwich topped with a fresh violet and burnet leaf, a sliced chicken sandwich with apricot and currant conserve and a toasted pumpernickel square with Swiss cheese.
Today's scones included traditional English cream and Cinnamon Chip scones served with fresh fruit, clotted cream and jelly.
The top tier featured the desserts, a strawberry jelly roll, a crunchy currant cookie, and little chocolate mice.  A wide range of loose leaf teas are offered, with the opportunity to select a second pot with a different flavor.  Guests are encouraged to sit and enjoy their tea tray, visit with each other, and simply relax and savor the moment.  Following tea time, a visit to the Rosemary House is always encouraged.
