I'm attending a tea Wednesday and then another one on Thursday. It's always time for tea and I love Mona's post.

Dear Angie,

Let me know how the teas were. What did the host serve? What kind of tea did you have?

Thanks!

The tea at the historic house served several black teas and herbal teas available (each person poured their own hot water into the cup) and the cucumber, pimento, and chicken salad sandwiches were very good. There were various desserts. The tea house that is open for business and by reservation only served sandwiches where the bread was cut with cookie cutters and shaped like mittens or trees, etc. She served a salad first, then the sandwiches along with some sweets. Then she served dessert - a slice of cake. She also served only one kind of tea so it was brewed in the tea pot and the servers kept the pot filled. She had a cute little elastic fastener which kept the lid on the tea pot snugly and a little paper roll that acted as a sponge so that the tea did not drip down the side of the pot.

Dear Angie,

This tea house sounds so quaint. The teahouses are not prevalent in my area. But I am happy to say that at this writing, my little boutique town is about to open a retail tea market/tea house directly across from a mom & pop coffee shop on the main drag of our town. I do believe this may fast become one of my favorite places. Can't wait to go. I'll report from there when it opens.
