Holiday Afternoon Tea 'To Go'

It's a Tea Themed Tree!
The table top tea themed Christmas tree has been in place for a few weeks as the tea room is decorated just before Thanksgiving. The little tree is adorned with a myriad collection of miniature themed tea pot ornaments, some collected during vacations in far away places, others received as stocking stuffer gifts through the years, and even more are pieces of tea themed jewelry acquired at gift shops; all with the purpose of sharing our love of tea!

Masks of Mechanicsburg - highlighting The Rosemary House
The health and well-being of customers has always been a primary concern at The Rosemary House. Whether it is suppling herbs and seasonings to enhance your daily meals or whether it is providing relaxing and fragrant essential oils to elevate or calm the mood of your personal space. For over 50 years The Rosemary House has always been there for the well-being of their customers. Currently, staff are happy to have “masked” discussions with customers about which herbs will best suit their needs. Looking to spice up your cooking or seeking herbs to help you sleep or support your immune system or simply want a tasty cup of tea? The Rosemary House is your local source for herbs, spices, teas and gifts.
Want to make your own disinfecting spray to wipe down those high touch areas? Here is a quick and effective recipe that The Rosemary House uses to keep their doors and counters clean:
- 1 cup alcohol (either rubbing alcohol or vodka)
- Add 30+ drops of your choice of essential oil (orange is uplifting, tea tree is anti-viral, lavender is relaxing, or eucalyptus to open sinuses, all are available at The Rosemary House!)
- Add ¼ cup distilled water
- 1 tablespoon hydrogen peroxide
- Mix all together, bottle, and spray and spritz as necessary
The Rosemary House, your one stop herb and spice shop, was established in 1968! Herbs, Tea, and Gift items. Established in 1968, this family business is owned and operated by Susanna Reppert Brill. Parking in the rear or on the street. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram!

Halloween Tea - 2020
Our annual Halloween Teas, held twice during October, feature special touches throughout the menu. Creepy Crawly Coleslaw was the first course served after our guests received their pots of tea. If you look closely at the photo, you'll see tiny edible bats adorned the salad plate. They complement the black paper bats that are flying above the centerpiece.
Be prepared for a Zombie invasion (or chocolate cupcake, chocolate frosting and chocolate sprinkles, with a Zombie hand), Witches Finger (if you dare) (a green chocolate covered pretzel with an almond fingernail), and Never look directly into the Ogre's Eye (a matcha flavored cookie with chocolate ganache and candy eyeball).

Cooking with Herbs of the Mediterranean Region
We recently hosted a special cooking demonstration and tasting session that featured the herbs of the Mediterranean region. We were pleased to welcome Debbie Hartman of Thyme with Debbie as the instructor and culinary wizard for this program. With Debbie out front in the tea room, and her husband George coordinating things in the kitchen, it was a working team that provided an enjoyable evening for our guests.
