A Visit to Sweet Remembrances Tearoom!

We had a delightful visit with Nancy Reppert at Sweet Remembrances Tearoom in Mechanicsburg, PA. It was unfortunately too brief! It was like a drive by tea. Don't do this if you ever get to visit! We had a wedding to attend at 2 PM so every moment counted. So here is the menu because Nancy gives you a wonderful selection and you will not go away hungry. The menu changes with the seasons and holidays!

The Herbal Husband had Earl Gray tea (Predictable, but he was happy.) and I had Blue Lady. It has a delightful combination of kiwi, strawberry and black tea. It is wonderful!

We started with a fall apple harvest salad. Then the savories were cheesy corn muffins with ham and apricot preserves, ranch chicken salad sandwiches, chocolate zucchini bread, apple harvest tea sandwiches on raisin bread, the scones were a traditional English cream scone and a cinnamon chip scone with mock clotted cream, cinnamon honey butter, peach preserves(The Herbal Husband loved Nancy's scones. I kept raving about them and he agreed. They are the best scones!), orange slices and dessert was raisin triangles, pumpkin tartlets (The Herbal Husband loved these!) and ginger cookies. Excellent, excellent tea! No matter what time of day you have it! We look forward to visiting again in the future!  Here is a link to find out about upcoming events.   Hope you enjoy the show!

Darn it all-PA is not a hop skip and a jump away from Utah. That food sounds divine! Maybe someday as my son lives in Baltimore and that's not too far away from there.

Thank you Nancy for sharing your visit to Sweet Remembrances! It was fun to see you again, and I'm glad that both you and the herbal husband enjoyed your quick visit here! I'm enjoying the many jellies you shared with me. What a special gift! Thank you so very much dear friend!

Julie, It's right up Route 15 from Baltimore! It would be easy to get there. It's a very special place. It is a four hour drive for us so we can't even get there as often as we would like! Thanks for stopping by.

Nancy, we love Sweet Remembrances and our short visit with you and even shorter visit with Susanna! Glad you like the show and the jellies! Nancy

Thank you for the video. What a lovely time you must have had. I'm quite green with jealousy right now!

(BTW, I thought of you today. I bought a lemon verbena plant at a Harvest Festival...)

The Rosemary House cataloge I have treasured for many years, plus all the books, booklets and fun ideas that Bertha, their mother published. It was nice to see the video.

We just brought one of our lemon verbenas in for the winter, Jules. I just love it!

Desiree, I also treasure all of my books, catalogs and booklets from Bertha. She was the best!

Glad you enjoyed the show.
