Tea for Thee...and Me

Warm up a cold afternoon with a steaming pot of tea and a fanciful assortment of dainty sandwiches (crusts removed of course!), savory noshes, scones and homemade desserts.
Look for profiles of three lovely teahouses  in the January issue of NJSL. 
Here's a  sneak peek at one of our favorites, High SocieTea in Wayne.
We loved the triple tiered presentation, the fresh flowers and the cozy covered teapots. Some of our favorite bites were the delicate phyllo cups filled with peach jam and brie, Italian bread broiled with a lemon-basil topping and of course, their signature caramel scones.

  1. Say, tea is terrific whether for two or twenty. Have you tried Chai Latte? It's tangy and spicy and very satisfying. Starbucks serves it and I have been buying every chai tea I can find at the supermarket and speciality stores, but I can't find the same taste or intensity of flavor.
