Gypsy's Tea Room
The Mid-Atlantic Tea Business Association annual spring seminar was held at Gypsy's Tea Room in Westminster, MD this past Monday. Members travelling from MD, PA, and NJ were greeted by Gypsy and her daughter Lora upon their arrival. A delicious welcoming reception that featured a choice of sweet or savory muffins, fresh fruit, and hot tea was a delicious start to an exciting day.
Following a very interesting and informative program about the utensils and equipage used during the Japanese tea ceremony (to be shared tomorrow), the members of the Association found their seats in this quaint English style tearoom located in the oldest standing home in Westminster. The beautiful place settings silently announced the delicious tea party fare that was forthcoming.
