I loved spending the afternoon in the Virginia countryside at beautiful Rosemont Manor. Set in the Shenandoah Valley with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, this historic Manor home has been host to numerous presidents and movie stars. But today, it was a reunion with friends. The owner, Biff Genda, recreated the history of this amazing manor home before we enjoyed an elegant tea (my second time there and I'm even more impressed than the first!). Chef Tona gave us a personal touch by explaining her techniques. She uses local produce and herbs to create delectable tea sandwiches, scones, and sweets that are out of the ordinary and delicious. I loved the duo of sweet and savory scones and the mint ice cream! All three of the specially blended teas from “Tea for All Reasons” were delightful and full of flavor. I look forward to going back and seeing what surprises await at tea! And hope to one day spend a weekend in the Manor Home in one of the Presidents’ rooms enjoying breakfast there!
