Tea Party Food & Teas

Our tea tasting started with the house black tea infused with coconut and chocolate. The next 3 teas were for our party to decide, which were Grandma’s Blend (a refreshing fruit tea), Crème Brûlée, and My Chai.

The beautiful tiers of snacks started with savory tea sandwiches on the bottom, to scones, to deserts at the top. Each guest receives one of each so that you can try them all. The tea sandwiches were a pesto creme, chicken pineapple, cucumber cream cheese and a spinach pastry. The two scones were made with raspberry and chocolate. At the top, the desert included a rocky road brownie, zucchini bread, and a lime cheesecake cream.

Be ready for a carb-heavy snack! If you are gluten sensitive, Coral Tree Tea House does offer gluten-free snacks at an additional cost and prior notice with your reservation.
