A Christmas Tea

I really enjoy a good tea.  Teaberry's Tea Room in Flemington, New Jersey takes tea to a whole 'nother level.



This lovely Victoria home is decorated beautifully for all the seasons.  Christmas is especially beautiful.









The sandwiches are divine


The desserts had to be packed up and brought home to be enjoyed another day!  Wonderful assortment of teas.  I love the chocolate chai.


My view as I was sipping my tea and gazing out the window.




No tea would be complete without warm-from-the-oven scones and jam, Devonshire cream and lemon curd.


Their tree is....upside


down!  It gets decorated seasonally.




Putz houses


They pay lots of attention to details.  Love the sugar trees.

If you are ever in the area, I would recommend you stop by Teaberry's.  Send me an email in advance, and I will gladly meet you there!  

Posting may be sporadic over the next two weeks, so I want to take this opportunity to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year!  2015!

  1. What an amazing home, Barbara! No wonder you love visiting there. :) Was that a marble fireplace I saw?? Sooo beautiful! I've never had a scone before, but they sure sound good! If I ever get over that way, I'll be sure to call you and make a date! :)

  6. Barbara, what a wonderful place! I've never been to a tea room before, but it looks lovely. It's great that you were able to go relax for a bit!

  7. Aww, sweetie! You are back to posting and I've had a hard time getting the time to visit! This is a wonderful post...I've never been to tea, although I always tell hubby we should do the 4:00 at The Drake Hotel in Chicago. We usually stay across the street at the Knickerbocker, but The Drake is where Princess Diana stayed and their tea is supposed to be wonderful. Somehow we always end up having cocktails instead! lol!

    The sandwiches and sweets look so good and I love the pretty decor.

    Thanks for stopping by! I hope to get back to some regular blogging soon. Hope all is well with you.

    Merry Christmas!

  8. I've just come from visiting Michele at Finch Nest where she was enjoying a Christmas Tea. An upside down tree is not one I have seen before...is it to prevent pets from getting at the tree or is it a space issue? Have a very Merry Christmas!

  11. What a magical tea! Those tea cozies are so beautiful and fun. Yes, the little sugar trees add that something special. We always do the tea with Santa in Salt Lake and it just is so out of the ordinary - takes me back to my British roots!
    Have a wonderful Christmas!

  13. yikes! My comment just vanished! Oh, well.

    The tea room looks so beautiful and so fun! As I began reading your post, I paused and checked a google map to see the location because I thought if it isn't too far (1 hour 11 mins), I'd ask if you'd like to meet there sometime. Then I got to the bottom of your post and saw your same thoughts. Well, sweet blogging friend, maybe we can plan that :) Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

  16. Hello, dear Barbara! I've finally made it over here to visit and comment!! I've seen your posts and had the best intentions to read and comment, but life got in the way. About a week before Christmas, I went down my sidebar and visited and commented for about two whole days. Unfortunately, I didn't make it to the blogs at the end of the alphabet, as I had to stop for Christmas preparations. And after that, I've simply been worn slap out (just got up from a two-hour nap). You can be sure that I haven't forgotten about you, though. :)

    This house and tea room are just beautiful!! I love the goody plates -- not just the goodies, but the plates themselves. :-D They're lovely! The food looks yummy, too, Barbara. I love the pretty architecture of the house and the classic Christmas decorations. That garland on the bannister is beautiful; I don't think I've ever seen one like that. I would LOVE to meet you at Teaberry's, if only I lived closer. Is it on Staten Island? If so, lucky you. :)

    Thanks for sharing this with us, Barbara; it looks like you had a wonderful time there. I hope you had a super nice Christmas, my friend, and wish for you a Happy and Blessed New Year!

    In joy,

    Denise at Forest Manor

  18. Hi Barbara,
    You must have had a wonderful, relaxing time! I am so happy for you.
    My friend took me to a Tea House and it was lovely. This Tea house is just beautiful!
    I love all the decor! The upside down tree was different and I am curious as to the ceiling and how they hung it up there? Just fascinating to me!
    Thank you for sharing your delightful time with us!Have a Happy New Year!

  21. I enjoyed all of your photos from Teaberry's. It looks like an ideal spot to visit prior to Christmas. All of the beautiful decorations would be sure to bring on the Christmas spirit. The food also looks delicious and those little sugar trees are darling.
