My First Red Hat Event - High Tea at a lovely tea room in Thomasville PA! I was nervous but was quickly put at ease. What a terrific group of ladies and lots of fun! The tables were decorated with old china and pretty flowers along with candelabra.
Our menu included the following:
Refreshing glass of Mandarin Orange/Pineapple/Papaya Juice
Fruit Medley with a surprise of fresh coconut at the bottom,
Garden Salad with a cooked House Dressing of Honey Mustard
A plate of Breads including: Plum Tea Bread, Blueberry Scones, Pecan Tea Bread, and Chocolate Oatmeal Scones with Devonshire Cream (yum)
Broccoli and Potato Soup or Chicken Corn Noodle Soup
Tea Sandwiches of Chicken Salad on Multigrain Bread and Ham & Swiss on white
Choice of Chocolate Cake with Whipped Cream and Peanut Butter Icing or Vanilla Pudding Cake with homegrown local strawberries and Whipped Cream
At least 20 different kinds of teas were offered, our table chose Cherry and Vanilla Chai
Overall experience I would rate it a 9 (just because a 10 would be perfect and no experience is ever perfect)
Thanks for reading this and if you have never been to a “High Tea” I would strongly recommend it!
