A Tea Affair - Lititz, PA

With special thanks to our very thoughtful tea room customers, our family enjoyed an Afternoon Tea at A Tea Affair in Lititz, PA last October. Upon arrival, we were seated at our table to discover a plate of scones and jelly waiting to be enjoyed. Our waitress took our tea orders, and we passed the scones.
We were offered a choice of their Broccoli Quiche, or the Soup of the Day (a warming butternut squash soup). Both were served alongside a house salad.

There are several options to select from the menu, including a Luncheon Tea, a Garden Tea, a High Tea, or the Children's Tea. We opted for the High Tea as we like to sample as many tea treats as possible. The tiered tray was presented after we finished the soup and quiche. The tier had a variety of four tea sandwiches, their signature crème brulee, and four pastries.

The sandwiches included a fresh and delicious assortment that included cucumber on rye & pumpernickel bread, egg salad, strawberry cream rounds, and a petite tomato caprese round. The Crème Brulee, well, that was simply divine.

And the pastries included a French madeleine, a small layered chocolate raspberry cake, coconut macaroon, and the most beautiful decorated tea cup sugar cookie. It was simply too pretty to eat. It was the crowning touch to a lovely tiered tray. The Afternoon Tea experience was quite enjoyable. Many thanks to Barb, Ann, Barbara, and Raegene. Your thoughtfulness was greatly appreciated.
