Think of the best scone you ever ate, the most delicious morsel of sandwich or cake that you ever put in your mouth, and the most satisfying cup of tea you've ever sipped. Imagine a floral fantasy of fabric, china, books, candles, teapots and tea cups. Picture a lovely hostess with a passion for her pleasant place. Put it all together and you have Jacqueline's Tea House in Freeport, Maine. The menu is the most complete list of teas you have ever seen: everything you can think of and more. The food comes on an attractive three-tiered rack. Scones accompanied by authentic clotted cream, lemon curd, and jam are on the bottom tier; in the middle are the delicate tea sandwiches like the signature cucumber and lavender finger sandwich, along with other sandwiches with goat cheese, pesto, chicken salad and other yummy tastes; and on the top plate is an assortment of delicate little cakes and cookies and other sweet treats. As you take your tea, you sit in the midst of the gift shop bright with the many china tea pots and cups and tea towels and other treasures. Everything is prepared by owner and hostess Jacqueline whose enthusiasm is infectious and whose service is impeccable. A great afternoon out. Price is about $30 for the full tea. The experience is well worth that price. Jacqueline's Tea Room is a great stop in a great town that is known for its shopping experience at LLBean's flagship store and many outlets and other shops. Be sure to make a reservation.
