When Was The Last Time You Did Something For The First Time?

Earlier this week, my daughter and I visited a charming little tea room in Pennsylvania. Our first formal tea party.

I love tea. No, I’m OBSESSED with tea! It’s so healthy, soothing, and tasty.

I came across a pin on Pinterest about a Mother’s Day tea party. My interest was piqued. I found a tea room near me called A Taste of Britain. The reviews were great, so I called and made a morning reservation.

The tea room is such a delightful place. The menu included a large selection of teas. I chose the lemon lavender rooibos and my daughter chose the peach black tea.

My tea was a perfect blend of lemon, lavender, and vanilla. It was calming, soothing, and citrusy. I was in tea heaven!

We ordered tea sandwiches because no tea party is complete without them. The sandwiches were cut into cute little triangles with the crust cut off. They were adorable and yummy.

We ordered our meals. I got an Apple and Brie Panini, and my daughter got The Old Fashioned. We also ordered two chocolate chip scones. Everything was delicious.

My daughter and I poured our last cup of tea around the same time. Then my daughter said, “It looks like our tea party is almost over. We should do this again.”

Wait! Stop the Press!

My young adult daughter enjoyed our tea party and wants a repeat. Friends, I felt like a total rockstar. Just call me Mother of the Year.

If you have a teenager or young adult child, you know how big this is.

We talked for over an hour. . .nonstop. There is something magical about tea that connects people.

On the way out, we stopped at the gift shop. The gift shop has a wide variety of authentic British products. I saw a few unfamiliar tea brands that I plan on trying. I may be adding them to my list of favorites, which include Twinings, TAZO, and Adagio Teas.

My daughter and I had a wonderful experience and plan on going back soon.

    I love finding cute little spots like this one! I recently went to one in my home town and indulged in some tea myself. I used to drink alot of tea but now I am on coffee (pray for me) This was such a cute and fun idea for a mommy daughter day!

      That sounds just like me. In my twenties and thirties I was a heavy coffee drinker. These days, I am back to being a tea lover. When I was younger, I could drink a cup of coffee at 8pm and have no trouble falling asleep. If I drink coffee at 5pm it keeps me up all night now.

    Oooh, that looks lovely!

    I went to tea at The Pierre (another blogger’s review) once with a friend – we need to do that again, we do!

    I’m a tea lover as well! One of my favorite brands is Loose Leaf Women tea. Not only is the tea delicious, but it is inspiring for women with flavors such as Maja’s Yet She Persisted, Rosie’s Riveting We Can Do It, and Notorious RGB’s Supreme AuthoriTea.

      I love this! I never really liked tea until I got older, and I don’t know what I was missing! Now I feel as if I HAVE to start my mornings with tea, it allows me to relax and center myself before the day begins. Cute post!

    That was a fun read, Jeanell, and brought back memories of visiting a Tea Room in Fort Myers with a good friend a few years ago. There is a special vibe that fosters relaxing conversation and of course enjoying the delicious treats that go with the tea!

      Yes, I agree! Everyone was savoring the moment. There were no cell phones out which was a sight to behold.
