Although our annual Mid-Atlantic Tea Business Association (MATBA) seminar was held in a church this year, we still enjoyed the special aspects associated with afternoon tea. Since our members travel from the tri-state area (Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and newest Delaware member) a casual morning reception is held while the attendees arrive. A simple buffet set up included a selection of teas (green, white and black) for your morning cuppa, and an individual portion of Yogurt with fresh fruit and garnished with pistachios and mint leaves and a Pepper and Egg Frittata. It was a tasty beginning to our day.
The individual sandwiches included a Yummy Pepper filled with rice and topped with roasted tomatoes, an Asparagus and Mozzarella wrap, a Minted Cucumber Crescent, Salmon & Dill on Whole Wheat, and a Florette with a Cheese Spread. Each sandwich was unique in flavor and creative in presentation. There was an abundance of sandwiches and the opportunity to select a few additional sandwiches was nice.
Scones were served next with plenty of cream and jelly available on the table.
