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 is the combined effort created by the sisters of The Rosemary House and Sweet Remembrances.
We recently took a mini road trip south to Red Lion, PA and enjoyed afternoon tea at the Red Brick Bakery & Tea Room. Located at 55 N. Main Street, this charming little tea room is tucked on the side of the building. You enter this magical little red brick archway to find yourself in a tiny hidden alcove with a sweet wrought iron table and chair set. Once inside, there is a casual tea room atmosphere.
We selected our teas from an extensive tea list comprised of a nice variety of teas including plain black teas, decaffeinated teas, herbals, and rooibos.
The first course included an oatmeal honey scone with cream and jelly.
Piping hot and well seasoned, minestrone was served next.
The sandwich platter included a small dish of minted peas, a toasted pear croissant with a sweet cinnamon spread, chicken and asparagus melt, and turkey, avocado, & tomato wrap.
And for dessert, a seasonal variety that included a shamrock cookie, pistachio tassie, and a chocolate caramel cupcake. Yum!
And here we are - having a good time!
We have one in our group that insists 'I don't like tea', so he ordered off the menu and selected the waffles with a side of bacon. His plate was clean!
They offer breakfast, lunch, and their bakery items Wednesday thru Saturday. Afternoon Tea is offered Wednesday through Sunday, by reservation. It was a fun excursion!
