Some Pictures To Emulate

For those of you who can't get Pinterest, here are a few saved to my Pinterest account. It's on the sidebar here.  

I like the above picture because I think we can do this with our own dear house in the background. Tea rooms are hard to find and often long distance.  I am going to try and emulate this!

Another one with a cottage in the background.

Husband bought me a box of Celestial Seasonings Green Tea for my Keurig. Tasty. I like the Kroger Lemon Jasmine tea as well. The single servings are handy for me.
My good friend from high school drives down to San Diego from Ventura County (where the big fires are today) two times a year to have high tea. She loves the pomp of it.

I love the cottage tea photo and your collection of photos of outdoor tea with homes in the background. I must try that with my home.

I'm from San Diego, Ca. and there are many tea rooms there on the coast, inland and in the mountains to the east of San Diego city.

Lydia thank you for posting the tea steeping chart. Could you enlarge it and post again? The lettering is too small to make out what it says.
Blessings, Janet

Dear Lydia,

Thank you for sharing this. Iin Scotland, my husband and I have what we call our “Tea” at a “Low Tea” time. We eat early, as often he must go out in the evening for his business, and I want to ensure he doesn’t go on an empty stomach. We eat a normal size dinner at this time, and while there is no tea involved, most everyone, (at least locally) refers to their main meal as “Tea.”

Sometimes, we have what’s known as a “Supper” around 9 or 10, which is really just a snack like toast and jam or a slice of bread toasted with cheese on top.

It is a dream of mine to one day go to London and have afternoon tea at The Ritz Hotel! In the meantime however, I am quite happy to have my friends and female relatives in for an afternoon tea in my home or attend at a local restaurant or tea room.

Blessing to you,

Lydia, do you have one of the 3 tier serving devices?
