The Granite Rose Tea Parlour, Granite, MD

In September, members of The Royal Tea Club gathered in Granite, MD  to enjoy an Afternoon Tea at the Granite Rose Tea Parlour. This beautiful 1890's Victorian home offers the perfect location to enjoy tea.

Individual pots of tea were offered to each guest. Once the little pot was on your table, warm scones were served. We each enjoyed a Pineapple Sage scone served with cream, lemon curd, and jelly. The tiniest fresh fruit garnish completed this course.
A two tiered tray held an assortment of five sandwiches that included two cucumber sandwiches each with a radish garnish on white bread, a tomato pesto sandwich on a half croissant, homemade zucchini bread with orange cream cheese, and an apple and cheese chutney sandwich. Such a pretty and tasty assortment of sandwiches. Little touches of fresh fruit garnishes were on the plate and atop the sandwiches.

The dessert medley included a raspberry oatmeal bar, a buttery cookie, and chocolate mousse.

We enjoyed our get-away to this tea room. As members of the Royal Tea Club, we try to attend at least one or two of their events during the year. Many of their activities conflict with our business schedule, but the date for this tea fell shortly after the Fairy Festival but before the Tea Festival. We were thankful for the interlude.
Their refrain is:

'Sit long ~ Talk Much ~ Laugh Often'. And we did.

How wonderful that you two darling sisters can sit for a while and enjoy service to YOU! I think the orange zucchini bread sandwich sounded delicious!

Lovely to have a small break for teatime between two very busy events. Pineapple sage scone sounds fascinating and delicious. Everything is lovely.
