It has been a while since we’ve been to this tea room. The owners have now opened their coffee shop next door, with a shared kitchen.
The interior of this cozy tea room looks just as we remembered it from the last visit. There is quite an eclectic mix of furniture, china and accessories.
Christian ordered the children’s tea, I had the light afternoon tea, and Don selected a ham & pineapple croissant sandwich plate.
The chicken corn chowder was delicious and so was the chicken salad.
The light tea also included pasta salad, frozen fruit salad and a butterscotch almond scone.
My Panyang Congou tea was delicious and Don enjoyed his Caribe blend. They are both sold by Harney & Sons. The tea room gift shop also had Harney & Sons tea available for sale. I was tempted by a tin of loose Hot Cinnamon Spice tea.
It was a pleasant way to spend the afternoon. I’ll have to tell you about my book trade. I thinned my library by a few dozen books, but then I came home with several new ones. I’m really happy with my autographed copy of the Deen Bros. “Y’All Come Eat” (signed by Paula and both the boys).
There was a lovely idea for tea in the “Decorating With Collectibles & Heirlooms book that I picked up (I’ll share later). I also added two more Company’s Coming volumes by Jean Pare to my cookbook collection. One has a recipe for fairy cakes and blanc mange, which I recently read about in The Dark Road To Darjeeling.
Now I’ll start a new box of books to trade and look forward to another trip to Powder Springs sometime soon.
