Crave - Afternoon Tea in Jim Thorpe, PA

Last weekend we had the opportunity to visit our sister Marj in the quaint community of Jim Thorpe, PA.  This town has a wide variety of shops and boutiques and an increasing amount of coffee shops, restaurants, and now it boasts a tea room!  Crave is an Absinthe House (more about that tomorrow) and Restaurant, but with British born owners, they've added afternoon tea to their menu.

This menu, announcing their tea service, is posted outside.  We made reservations for High Tea on a Saturday afternoon.
The tea list included selections such as English Breakfast, Lapsang Souchong, Darjeeling, and Green.  We all had individual little pots, so our table selected a nice variety so we would be able to sample an assortment.


The tiered tray included a nice variety of tea sandwiches, cucumber, egg salad, herbed cream cheese, and more.  The scones were plain and golden raisin and were served with true Devon cream and strawberry preserves.  The little dessert tray included a strawberry petit four and a miniature shortbread cake.

Marj was working at her shop, Rosemary Remembrances II, while we were taking tea, but Carrie (the oldest sister of the four Reppert girls) and her husband, Phil were happy to partake of the experience.

What a great family tea-time experience. I'm happy to know another restaurant has added Afternoon Tea to its menu. Hopefully it will catch on with more restaurants.
