An informative sampling focused on herbs and tea with an occasional sprinkling of fairy dust and a glimpse into family activities too. The contributions to this blog are the combined efforts of the sisters of The Rosemary House and Sweet Remembrances.
Our tea began with a very savory tomato basil soup, served in a delicate china cup accompanied with a croissant filled with tasty chicken salad.
The three tiered tea tray was a feast for our eyes. The sandwiches, placed on the middle tier, featured a ham salad with pimiento cheese, egg salad crescent moons, sliced cucumbers, and another triangular sandwich.
The scone tray, on the bottom, included a nice variety of fresh fruit, petite cubed cheese, and two triangular scones, spicy cinnamon raisin and also lavender.
The cream was presented in a tea cup topped with a petite rosebud while the lemon curd was in a stemmed aperitif glass topped with a petite blossom.Dessert included chocolate cookies, assorted petit fours, and cream puffs, along with the cutest little mice made using a chocolate covered cherry for the body, a Hershey's kiss for the face and sliced almonds as ears. Too cute to eat!
All in all, it was an enjoyable evening for our first day in Florida. Susanna found this tea room by searching Orlando tea rooms listed on TeaMap.
