Afternoon Tea at The Tea Room in Milford, Ohio


Melissa and PJ (top photo) and KJ and I (bottom photo) traveled to Milford, Ohio near Cincinnati for tea at The Tea Room on Saturday.  The Tea Room opened in September, 2010, and is located in Historic Downtown Milford, an area of quaint shops, galleries and restaurants along Main Street, Milford.
I located this tea room through the listing on Tea Map.

Melissa and I ordered the Cheryl's High Tea, a full afternoon tea, 6 year-old PJ the Prince Tea, a
nd 9 year-old KJ the Princess Teas. 

We requested the Prince and Princess teas to be brought to the table at the same time as our soups.
The children's teas included Turkey Snowmen Sandwiches, PNBJ Bunny and Hearts, Chicken Salad and Ham Salad on round bread.   The top tier had fresh Blueberries and Strawberry slices with cream and Shortbread Cookies.
Our "Prince" drank milk in his teacup and our "Princess" tried the Blueberry Infusion and drank several cups of the Black Dragon Oolong.

As result of serving the prince and princess, I forgot to take photos of Melissa's Cream of Watercress Soup and my Tomato Basil Soup.  You can get a peek of her soup above.  Both soups were delicious!


Our first course was Blueberry Scones served with Mock Devonshire Cream and Strawberry Jam.

The three-tier server arrived with sandwiches/savories and sweets. 

Sandwiches on the bottom tier were an Orange Muffin with Ham Salad, Turkey and Cream Cheese on Homemade Date-Nut Bread (yummy!), a Traditional Cucumber Sandwich on White Bread, and a delicious Cranberry Chicken Salad on a Mini Puff Pastry. 
The sweets on the middle tier were Lemon Bars and Chocolate Cherry Cordials.

The top tier served Strawberries and Cream and Shortbread Cookies. 

The Tea Room is decorated with Vintage Linens and Antiques.
The dishes, serving pieces and silverware are vintage.  

Antique and Vintage items throughout the shop are available for purchase.



I just had to show you close-up photos of the garnish on the cucumber sandwich (above)
and the the chicken salad puff pastry (below).  These special touches make tea sandwiches special!   


I counted approximately 30 seats in this cozy tea room. 
The ambiance and decor reminded me of many tearooms I have visited in English villages.  
Thank you to Cheryl, Deana, and Ellen for making our visit to The Tea Room in Milford memorable!
