|The Tailored Tea|
It does not happen often, but when the stars are aligned just right, I get a little girl time with my mother and daughter. Today we thought it would be fun and different to go out for a Sunday brunch at a local tea house. The Tailored Tea (located directly next to the Albany Airport) is set in an historic farmhouse that was built in 1785. The Ebenezer Hills, Jr. Farmhouse is certainly not short on character. Original wide-plank wood floors, quaint rooms and period decor make this the ideal setting for this wonderful tea house.
Owner Annie Misir has clearly put time and energy into all the details that make this place so special. The menu, linens, antique porcelain china, etc. are finely balanced to give you that nostalgic Victorian feeling. We selected the freshly brewed Irish Tea in a full pot which yields about six cups of tea (half-pots are also available). My seven-year old daughter opted for farm animal-shaped pancakes, which were really fluffy and delicious. I went with their eggs benedict served over a lemon and rosemary scone, also very good. My mother went with the special which was an egg and vegetable breakfast quesadilla (not pictured).
The Tailored Tea hosts several special events and also has private rooms for showers, parties, etc. To find out more about The Tailored Tea, please visit their website at www.thetailoredtea.com
