As a tribute to the amazing displays at this years Holland themed flower show, the tea room has created a special treat for this months special:
HollanDaisy has a layered flavor that delights and entices. It begins with a base of our Organic Earl Grey and our Rose Congou Black tea for a deep flavor, then as many flowers as we could find we tossed in letting the petals rest in the fragrant mix. Blue Corn flowers, Calendula, Rose petals and a touch of lavender decorate this fragrant blend. The final touches are a smidge of mint and a pinch of cardamom which are uplifting for the senses and the mind. This mix promotes a relaxed body and a sense of well being.
Instead of buying a bouquet come and enjoy a cup that offers health benefits while delivering great pleasure in a cup.
Blueberry scone. Both treats will be served for the entire month of March.All flower show ticket holders are invited to stop by the tea room with their ticket stub to receive a 15% discount off any food or beverage during the week of March 11th- 19th.

Poets For Peace is a collective movement of bringing hope and inspiration onto the road to combat the negative impacts of the Western war machine through dialogue and storytelling. This installment will be fronted by three Philadelphians: Stephanie B., LindoYes, and Marshall James Kavanaugh. Stephanie B., author of Letters To Aunt Lucy, uses her writing to forage on the flower of the spirit and bring it back to the hive to help make honey. LindoYes is an artist who uses personal experiences that reflect on the social injustices of our urban streets to paint whole new worlds of words where the day begins with a woke heartbeat. Marshall James Kavanaugh has spent the last few years traveling the country, collecting haikus from the expansive big skies found out west and fast-paced cities back east, most recently publishing a collection of essays from his experiences with the Water Protectors at Standing Rock in North Dakota. In each word these two poets share is the intention of a better world manifested through communal exchange. Together their poetic musings will direct the audience towards a sense of inner peace that will shine a beacon of light onto the darkness of the outer world.

Dann Pell is a guitarist, vocalist and percussionist based in Chester County, PA. His music embraces folk traditions; country-blues, jazz, chants/hymns/spirituals, and incorporates unique expansive rhythmic devices akin to those of Steve Reich, John Coltrane, Phillip Glass into the folk idiom. He spends most days singing hymns to the elderly or entertaining friends with new works of music, and on off days can most likely be found exploring exotic polyrhythm whilst drinking mate in the comfort of his Phoenixville home.
Brian John McBrearty is a Philadelphia-based guitarist and composer. Brian’s music combines American primitive guitar style with ambient textures, minimalist composition techniques and elements of drone and psychedelia. A graduate of New York University’s renowned jazz program, Brian has logged time touring and recording in a variety of musical contexts, including experimental and jazz groups, meat-and- potatoes rock and now as a solo performer. Brian’s meditative, hypnotic and melodic guitar orchestrations are cinematic in scope and recall the work of John Fahey, David Pajo’s Papa M project, and Sonny Sharrock. Brian released his debut album, Things I Recall, in summer 2015 and his latest release, The Tremolo Tapes, is now available on bandcamp and on cassette via the UK imprint, Blue Tapes.
