Sisters Tea Parlor — Buckner, KY

We enjoyed afternoon tea at Sisters Tea Parlor in Buckner, KY
near Louisville while we were in the area for an overnight. 
This Kentucky tea room has been on my "bucket list" for a couple of years.
Our server, Joyce, was one of the most knowledgeable servers
I have experienced about the selection of teas on the menu.
Each guest selected their own bottomless pot of tea
We ordered the"Friendship Tea", a full afternoon tea,
served on the three tier server.
Interesting coincidence having a tea with the same name as my blog!
Sandwiches and savories below included:
Cracked Black Pepper Biscuit w/Country Ham Salad
Princess Tea Sandwich (strawberry cream cheese filling)
Corn Souffle Square
Cucumber Crown
Chicken Salad Tea Sandwich
A Cheddar Dill Savory Scone and
an Apple Pie Sweet Scone (served with Lemon Curd)
The Sweets were:
Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cone Cake (not ice cream)
Strawberry Shortbread
"Lime in the Coconut Bar"
Louisiana Pecan Praline Ball
Ginger Snap
Chocolate Truffle
The menu is listed below
In addition to three dining rooms, Sisters Tea Parlor
has a Tea Bar
And, a very nice gift shop. 
Yes, we did shop for a few fun things.
Sisters Tea Parlor is very conveniently located at Butler, Ky
just off I-71 as you drive from Louisville toward Cincinnati.

We celebrated GJ's birthday at afternoon tea.
Sisters Tea Parlor provided a very nice tea experience for our family. 
Note:  Although this tea room is in Kentucky, it is about
2 hours drive from our home.
