This past week included a visit to TranquilaTEA in Waynesboro, PA.  Pretty and quaint, just the way you expect to find a tea room.

We were each able to select our own tea, either iced or hot.  Notice the little tag dangling from the lid, that marks the flavor of the tea held within.  The pots are coordinated to the warming plate below.With the Queen's Tea, we were able to select a second flavor of tea. That's always fun!
Salad was fresh and tasty with strawberries, almonds, and a poppy seed dressing.  Then, the three tiered tray was placed in the center of the table.  Such a feast!  And such pretty presentation.  The bottom tier included two types of scones, chocolate chip and the other scone included currants.  A tiny portion of cream and lemon curd was on the table.

The sandwiches included chicken salad, fresh cucumber gaily wrapped with red ribbon, sun dried tomato, tomato and feta in a pastry shell, pimiento cheese, and a chutney spread.  Such a nice assortment of petite sandwiches in a variety of shapes. 

The top tier captured our attention and featured tasty morsels that included a shortbread cookie, a raspberry chocolate chip bar, and an apricot crumb.  We would certainly return to this tea room!

What a delightful tea room! When a tea room owner says "We would certainly return to this tea room," you know it's a good one.
Thanks for sharing it with us, Nancy.

I like the name of this tea room. Everything looks very tasty. I love celebrating birthdays at afternoon tea.

Such a beautiful presentation --- and I love the flowers and tie wrapping on the sandwich!

I'm always impressed when YOU'RE impressed, and this does look like a fantastic spread!

Everything does look simply delicious! That apricot crumb especially caught my eye, since I am loving apricots this summer and not getting enough. Such a pretty presentation.
