Meet the Owner

rsz kathleenhippeli 1Kathleen Hippeli, the owner of One Steep at a Thyme, a tearoom in Jamesburg, may be even more determined that her afternoon tea customers have an experience: the two-room, 20-seat Victorian tearoom she opened in 2013 welcomes visitors for two afternoon tea seatings on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Reservations are required for the seven-course service, and Ms. Hippeli, 50, of Spotswood, requests that guests plan to stay two hours "to savor the experience," she said.
On a recent Sunday, One Steep at a Thyme's afternoon tea service includes a refillable pot of loose-leaf tea (60 flavors are offered), a teacup of soup, a small green salad, a wedge of homemade strata or quiche, two scones served with cream, tea sandwiches, a selection of desserts and lemon sorbet. Ms. Hippeli also holds tea tastings two Tuesday evenings a month and special events on weekday nights.
