 The last two courses are from the buffet table,

And, Pasta Salad with fresh corn and tomatoes
Desserts:
A Ginger Chocolate Truffle

We chatted non-stop,
and very much enjoyed Greentree's lunch tea.

What an absolutely fabulous lunch! Just the scone and pear/ salad would be quite a nice pairing, even without that gorgeous soup and all the tea dainties.

I've been meaning to mention that you have some of the best photos of any blog I follow---always in such good light, and clear as a magazine.

Wonderful tea! I just checked out their website and the Novemember menu is making my mouth water. I have to be in Lexington Sunday and Monday (they are closed, frown) - but hope I can make it back in the fall. I am sure you and your friend had a wonderful time.

It's always nice to meet with a friend anywhere, but especially over "Tea". Your menu was "tea-lious".

The pear is to die for! My mouth is drooling.
