Despite our fast-paced world, the Victorian custom of high tea is growing in popularity. The menu normally consists of scones served with Devonshire cream—an extremely rich, thick cream spread—and lemon curd. Also served are tiny finger sandwiches and desserts; some tea houses also serve additional selections like mini quiche, salads, and soups. Naturally tea is served, with often a dozen or more types of teas to choose from. Josephine's Victorian Tearoom is located in a Victorian farmhouse next to the historic Hull House in Lancaster. High tea is served on Saturday and two weekdays each month by reservations only. A simple tea and luncheon is served each Friday on a walk-in basis. - Christine A. Smyczynski
