Royal Tea Club - Afternoon Tea - Hollabaugh Bros. Fruit Farm
Susanna and I headed south to the Gettysburg area recently to attend a Royal Tea Club event. It was a combination afternoon tea and craft scheduled at Hollabaugh Bros. Fruit Farm and Market in Biglersville, PA. The event was held in their all-purpose room where colorful yellow tablecloths and beautiful bouquets of fresh field flowers set the scene for a bright and cheerful gathering.
A fresh peach harvested from the surrounding fields graced our plate. Pots of hot water were on the table and a variety of Harney & Sons tea bags were offered .
The second course featured petite Herb Cream Cheese Appetizer Cups. A savory dollop of herbed cream cheese was topped with small piece of cucumber and radish and garnished with a generous piece of fresh dill all nicely tucked in mini phyllo cups. Very crunchy, very tasty, very fresh, and very pretty.
Tiered trays laden with Ham and Cheese Sandwiches on Multigrain bread and Egg Salad Sandwiches on Pumpernickel held the next tasty course. The sandwiches were generous in portion and quantity.
