A Tea Affair, Lititz, PA

A few weeks ago Susanna and Nancy had the pleasure of savoring Afternoon Tea at A Tea Affair in Lititz, PA.  Lititz, located in Lancaster County, is a fun community with a great variety of gift shops, art galleries, and Wilbur's Chocolate factory.  It all combines to make a great place to stroll, shop, and enjoy the day.  Top that with a visit to a tea room, and you have a memorable day.

The interior of the tea room is pristine white with bold splashes of color, bright red and green are accented on the walls, tables, and repeated with the tea pots.

The High Tea, their specialty, featured a salad, a variety of tea sandwiches, fresh scones with jam and curd, and a delicious variety of desserts featuring a French flair.












Warm scones followed by a delicious strawberry salad with sweetly crusted pecans served by an attentive young French lad with a beautiful accent eager to return to his final year of study at Dickenson College in Carlisle, PA.
















The tiered tray included a nice variety of sweets and savories. And an additional tray of desserts was presented on the side with Crème Brulee.


Be sure to visit the gift shop afterwards where you will be enticed to purchase a package of tea or perhaps a special tea accoutrement.  They have a large selection of specialty tea items and tins of loose leaf tea line the back wall where you can decide which new flavor to add to your tea cupboard.

Sounds like a fun day, and the food sounds quite tasty!

Yummm! The name of the tea shop immediately sent my mind to a clandestine meeting place with secret corners for whispers and delights. Silly me! But the food and colors of the shop were delightful.
