Silver Tips Tea Room, Tarrytown, NY

Another fun stop on our Traveling Herb Seminar included a visit to Silver Tips Tea Room in Tarrytown, NY, one of the rivertowns along the Hudson. We stopped here in the morning and had a delightful Tea Tasting accompanied by a nice variety of scones.

Susanna introduced us to the energetic and informative owner, Anupa Mueller. Anupa was pleased to share her love of tea with our group of herb and tea enthusiasts. Having grown up in Darjeeling, Anupa has developed her knowledge of tea thru her heritage.
Silver Tips Tea Room offers walk in service for lunch or afternoon tea and also holds private parties. They have a nice gift shop and a wide assortment of loose leaf teas. Anupa tells us that when she first opened in 1999, the community was doubtful that a tea room would be able to survive. We visited the tea room in 2002, and since that time, they have doubled their space. Happily, the community has indeed supported them. 

The scones we enjoyed, along with our flight of teas, made this a very pleasant morning.

I have a feeling I have met Anupa in the past. What a nice place to visit.
