Amelia's Teas and Holly

Amelia's Teas and Holly, a combination tea room and Christmas shop is located on Main Street in Mullica Hill, NJ. Since we arrived before our scheduled reservation, we spent some time browsing several antique malls in the area before tea.

Lately it seems we've been traveling on a Sunday which makes it a challenge to locate a tea room that is open. It's always exciting when we accomplish that task. We each placed our orders for tea, and the tables quickly filled with assorted teapots, all shapes and sizes.
Tomato Bisque Soup - First Course
We each had our own personal three tiered tea tray laden with all sorts of yumminess. Sandwiches, on the bottom tier, included a cucumber sandwich with a creamy spread, egg salad on a pita triangle, and a pimiento cheese sandwich. The middle tier held a warm savory quiche, fresh fruit garnish, a raspberry crumb scone, and a slice of orange tea bread dusted with confectioner's sugar. The top tier featured a petit four, an almond square, chocolate brownie, and lemon cream filled puff.

Cedar, the eleven year old that proudly proclaims 'I don't like tea' was pleased to be able to receive ham and cheese squares on his personal tiered tray. Truth be told, I think he enjoys going to tea rooms more than he wants to admit!

 Angelica, Susanna, and Nancy, on the other hand, love tea! Cheers!

I love it when tearooms and antique shops are in close proximity. They go hand in hand, and makes for a longer enjoyable day.

Sounds like a perfect day. Those treats look yummy, and so does the soup! Cedar sounds like my nephew who doesn't like tea, but loves the ceremony, and the food.

I think Cedar likes the challenge of seeing what he can get different than everyone else. The food all looks just wonderful. I kept watching to see the Holly.
