A Perfect Fall Tea Filled Afternoon

A few days ago I had the pleasure of joining some dear tea friends that I made during my days at Civil-La-Tea.  We met at The Joy Garden in New Freedom, PA for full afternoon tea.

A welcoming tea table with a beautiful fall afternoon view.

 A comforting bowl of mushroom wild rice soup to begin

Next,  tempting Cream and fragrant Cinnamon Chip Scones.  To be followed by delcious Cucumber tea sandwiches, Blue Cheese and Apple Bruchetta, Asparagus and Swiss on marbled rye, and a mini Quiche.

And for the grand finale a luscious Chocolate Brownie Cup with Chocolate Ganache, Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting and a Shortbread Cookie with Toffee Crumble. 

The special treat were the tea friends around the table sharing tea with me making it a perfect fall tea filled afternoon.  Where will you enjoy tea this fall season?

  4. It all looks lovely! I loved that little "acorn" cookie.
    Some tea friends and I just enjoyed a "Fall Tea" at the "Windsor Court" Tea Salon in New Orleans.
    It was a fabulous time.
