Afternoon tea conjures images of elegant china, tea hats, conversation and some sugary delights. One year we celebrated my daughter’s birthday with a “birthday tea”. It was such a fun, elegant and delicious experience. We now go every year. It’s one tradition we always look forward to. You’ll find Long Island is home to several tea rooms that set the stage for the perfect affair or indulgence. Check out these drool worthy options.
Afternoon Tea is a tea-related ritual, introduced in Britain in the early 1840s. It evolved as a mini meal to stem the hunger and anticipation of an evening meal at 8pm. Afternoon Tea is a meal composed of sandwiches (usually cut delicately into ‘fingers’), scones with clotted cream and jam, sweet pastries and cakes. Interestingly, scones were not a common feature of early Afternoon Tea and were only introduced in the twentieth century.- www.afternoontea.co.uk
Two Dessert Teas! comes with a pot of delicious tea and a scone, fresh fruit, and an assortment of sweets, cream & jam. The scone I got this year was white chocolate peppermint and it was mind blowing and full of flavor! My favorite scone there! The cream is so delicious and adds a great layer of flavor to whatever you put it on. I wish I could buy a gallon of it! The the assortment of treats are some of the most delicious sweets ever. I must tip my hat the the baker because these are SO GOOD! My taste buds have an amazing experience every time I go! @secretgardentearoom #tea #teashop #thesecretgarden #dessert #desserttea #lovetea #tealover #dining_fanatic #portjeff #scones #sweets #teaporn
