Tea Time at Asa Ransom House

On Tuesday of our vacation I got to visit the Asa Ranson House in Clarence, New York.
You can click here to visit their website.
Built in 1853, this charming Clarence bed & breakfast is charming and secluded, but only 15 minutes from Buffalo and 28 miles from Niagara Falls.

It is the perfect setting for Afternoon Tea.

My sister-in-laws, Susan Fiegel and Cindy Drabik and my niece Sarah Fiegel...what a treat.

The waitress first brought out a tea box filled with an assortment of teas to try.

I had Heavenly Green Tea with Passion Fruit and Delightful Raspberry Vanilla Herbal.

In the sugar bowl...raw sugar cubes with sugar tongs.

Then the traditional tea tray was served.

A selection of finger sandwiches with fruit garnish.
Chicken salad on Rye, Cucumber on Pumpernickle, Sun dried tomato on Wheat and Raspberry jam on White.

Elegant cakes and pastries.
Carrot Cake, Cheescake and assortment of tea cookes.

Fruit Scones that were delicious.
(Apricot and berry)

Served with jam, butter and Devonshire Cream.

In the library you could have tea by the fireplace.
I could only imagine during the winter how cozy this would be.

Asa Ransom House offers tea every Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday
From 1:00 - 4:00pm.
"The tea party is a spa for the soul. You leave your cares and work behind. Busy people forget their business. Your stress melts away, your senses awaken." - Alexandra Stoddard
Thanks girls for a great afternoon!
