The Strawberry Tree Tea Room, Curwensville, PA

We found a new reason to enjoy Afternoon Tea! In celebration of the successful completion of Angelica's freshman year at Penn State, we headed to The Strawberry Tree Tea Room in Curwensville, PA. Mikayla, a new found friend from the university and a resident of Curwensville joined us for tea.

Several in our group ordered the iced tea. For hot tea drinkers, a tea-for-one pot with hot water is provided along with a wooden box full of tea bags to make your selection. Hot Cinnamon Spice was the tea of choice for this rainy and chilly PA day. We all decided to include the Broccoli Cheese Soup as an add-on to our menu.
Each guest received their own individual tiered tray which was fun! Shown below are the two options available. The tiered tray on the left is their standard 'So Sweet Sampler' which includes tea sandwiches (Cucumber, Ham & Swiss and Turkey & Provolone), cheese triangles crackers, cheese ball, carrot and celery sticks with ranch dip, tea cookies, fresh fruit cup, mini cheesecake and a scone with a dollop of cream. We requested a vegetarian option and received cucumber sandwiches. On the right is the other Afternoon Tea Sampler. This menu changes seasonally.

This little miniature salad came with the tray on the right. It is a crispy little cup filled with lettuce and a touch of veggies all dressed with Italian vinaigrette. Such a fun way to serve a miniature portion of salad. It would have been a perfect addition to the vegetarian tea tray!

And what's a celebration without an incredibly delicious dessert!? We shared a slice of the mile high peanut butter pie that sat atop a rich chocolate brownie coupled with garnishes of whipped cream and chocolate drizzle. Yum!

 The walls were covered in a wide variety of eye catching decor. And several rooms upstairs were full of tempting options for the shoppers in the group.

What a fun way to end the school year and indoctrinate a new friend. It looks like a fun time, especially sharing that delicious looking pie.

Looks like a fun visit and how nice to be "served" instead on doing the serving!
