The Tea Room at Kiftsgate
You can’t have a proper cup of tea in a paper cup handed to you by the drive-through attendant. It will taste completely horrid, ambience, and mood enhancer, I don’t think so. My wonderful husband has caught on to that one. If he sees I am not having the best of days…he brings me tea on a tray, brewed to perfection, to sooth my ruffled nerves. So, I will tell all. I have much more of a tea hoard than I have ever dared to expose before today. Teas, teapots, tea caddies, teaspoons (special ones), tiny decorated sugar cubes, tea cozy's, teacups, all the paraphernalia really. I even have special tea cookies that I bake seasonally to freeze for that special cup of tea to be shared with a friend. Seriously, cranberry shortbread cookies for winter, lavender shortbread for summer. Geez, I feel like I am coming out...it is kind of fun. I have so many teapots, they are mostly in storage. My husband has brought me teapots from all around the world when he traveled. My poor children will some day inherit all this. Oh the poor darlings have had their share. We have had tea parties for every occasion know to childhood, Birthday teas, Teddy Bear teas, Sunflower Playhouse teas, Dolly teas, Christmas Tea, Last Day of School tea…poor things.
All that wonderfulness, and now they are saying antioxidants are one of teas greatest health benefits. Who knew?
So here is my show & tell all
