Come for Tea at the "Unsinkable" Molly Brown House

     (Scone with Devonshire Cream and Strawberry Jam, Served at the Victorian Tea at the Molly Brown
      House in Denver, Colorado.)


The Molly Brown House in Denver, Colorado, has a Victorian tea that includes cucumber dill, mozzarella basil/tomato, and curried chicken sandwiches.



Also on the menu is a variety of sweets such as brownie bites, lemon bars, cinnamon sprinkled apply slices, and cookies. Everything is served in tiny portions, thank heavens.

The most tasty offerings, however, are fresh scones. They are flat as opposed to wedge-shaped.  They come with Devonshire cream which consists of heavy cream mixed with cream cheese, and strawberry jam. 





Volunteers in old-fashioned garb pour a combination of  jasmine and Earl Gray mix of hot tea from shiny silver pots.






Tiny pieces of lemon and sugar cubes are on the tables, too.  Everything is served in glass containers which offer an air of elegance.







A separate post on the Molly Brown House, and the woman behind it,  will be coming up soon, so stay tuned.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TO A VICTORIAN TEA?

Hi, Susan. You posted a comment on my blog back in May and I saw it tonight. Signed on for the first time since then! Thank you so much for your encouraging words. I know how important it is to be at home with my children, and it's hitting home even more now because my oldest graduates high school in May. My baby is only 8, though, so there's still hope!

I enjoyed your post...I've always wanted to go to a tea room, just never have. Those scones look so good with the cream and jam on top!

Blessings,
Christa

I went to a tea in Tucson, Arizona way back when and I also went to one in Ireland when I was there...scones were so delicious and I LOVE tea. Did you partake or just take photos?

That sounds and looks delightful. Who needs to wait on a year long waiting list for tea when you can visit a quaint and cozy tea room like this? :) I've been to a lovely little tea shop with my aunt and cousin in Michigan where we were able to wear Victorian hats and scarves while sipping and eating delectable savories and sweets. Sadly, it has since closed down. :( I look forward to your post on the Molly Brown House. Have a great day. Tammy

There are lots of tea houses around Denver. The Brown Palace has a glamorous one and I am suppose to go with some girlfriends once the weather clears. They are booked into January 2012!
