It's spring break over here...and though it doesn't feel much like spring...we had us a wee 'spring tea' yesterday. The grands next door were playing outside in the rain...and by late afternoon I thought they may want a 'spot of tea' to warm up a little.
Besides, I needed an excuse to brew some tea...since the supply I brought back from the tea plantation in Kenya was still unopened in it's package.
Oh...and I have some fun new tea party things. When my sister was out last month, we went to one of my favorite little shops in town...and I spotted a little tea-for-one set.
It just so happened to be Cream Lace...the very same as my large tea pot and cream and sugar. I reasoned that I needed it, since most often I have only one guest at the table who prefers tea...while the rest of us drink coffee. And so I brought it home with me.
They also had the cutest miniature tea set in Cream Lace...but I couldn't really justify buying that. It seems my sister thought I needed it ...and went back later to have it gift-wrapped for me. And so it was time to have a spring tea party...just to check it all out.
The girls conceded they would try tea for the first time...with plenty of milk and sugar...in those wee little cups. No thumbs up. I'm thinking they'll be drinking coffee with me one day!
Ryder managed a few sips...and then moved on to juice and chocolate mint brownies. Outside the rain continued to fall. Inside...we had spring tea!
As for the tea from Kenya...I quite enjoyed it.
