The Tea Caddy

I actually have a few posts backlogged because of the two week France posts, so now we are going back in time to May 17th, when I had tea with my mother and aunt at a new(ish) tea room in Berryville, Virginia called the Tea Caddy.

Berryville is in the Shenandoah Valley in the Appalachian Mountains.  I've actually been to the town before for tea at a bed and breakfast (see my Rosemont Manor tea post here), but I was really excited (as always) to try a brand new tea room!

(Telephone booth in the entryway)

(View of the room from the entrance)

There were a couple of larger groups in the main part of the tearoom, so we were shown to a small table in the window.

(The chandelier over our table had a teapot in the middle and the lights were in teacups!)
(They had gold chargers under each place setting, very pretty!)
The menu:

We got the Duchess of York, which came out on a three tiered tray:

(Curry chicken salad, egg salad, cucumber)

(scones, with clotted cream and jam.  I really liked how they served the clotted cream and jam in fancy demitasse cups)

(shortbread cookies, macaroons, tiny cherry cheesecakes, meringues covered in chocolate, and small brownies)
I just realized I skipped the tea!  I got the Shenandoah Blue blend (it seemed appropriate).  This black tea had blueberries and cornflower blossoms.   

Finally a couple of other pictures of the tearoom, which incorporated hats as a decoration on many of the tables.

I'm sharing this post on the tea parties below:
