The White House in Oakhurst, NJ

Members of the Mid-Atlantic Tea Business Association recently gathered in Oakhurst, NJ for their summer meeting.  Currant president of the Association and business owner of The White House in Oakhurst, Kirsten Kristensen hosted the special event.  Members enjoyed a morning welcoming reception of a nice assortment of Sticky Fingers scones accompanied by cream, curd, and jelly, and a variety of hot teas.

The presidential theme is appreciated in each room throughout the building.  A wide variety of collections are on display, including a hall featuring individual portraits of every President.

Kirsten considers herself a Tea Coach, and is quite happy to introduce her customers to the exciting world of tea through special tea events, or through personal one on one education.

The gathering of tea business members was a 'pot luck' event, and these pictures capture a mere portion of the wide variety of organic menu items featured at this event.  Shown here are Lapsang Souchong infused Deviled Eggs, Egg Salad Sandwiches, and Tomato, Feta and Chick Pea Salad with pistachio nuts.

There was a delicious Capresse Salad prepared by the Tea and Hat Lady, and Susanna shared Quinoa stuffed Cherry Tomatoes. For a comprehensive look at the menu, visit Darlene's blog, The Tea Enthusiast's Scrapbook, as she has highlighted everything that was served at this luncheon.

Oh my gosh, this looks so fabulous. I enlarged the pictures and so enjoyed looking at the table setting and the food pictures which look divine. Lucky for you to go there. Must have been very special.
Continue to have fun in Spain!
Best, Ruthie
