This blog post may make you think that all I do is sit around and drink tea! Ha ha! It's just that it seems that tea appears whenever I am with other people. What a delight!
Look at this beautiful tray my neighbor prepared for us when I stopped by for a visit late last week. Isn't it lovely! It made me feel so special! (And I need to keep my eye out for a tea tray like this!)
I popped around to another neighbor yesterday and this is what she had prepared for our tea, along with a pot of a dark tea containing something like lemon grass, ginger, and other spices. Look at the color of that papaya!!!
The tea trolley was busy on Saturday for a gathering of the women in the family and the sharing of knitting and reading ideas as well as sampling several teas and enjoying delicious food.
And here is tea-time at my sister's where several of us gathered for knitting lessons this week in preparation for beginning a new sweater pattern. Each of us received our own teapot with our own choice of tea!
We were treated to dinner at friends this week and I brought along this pavlova filled with orange curd whipped cream and berries. Oh it was delicious! And I failed to get a picture of the tea trolley. I chose to have a Rooibos Chai with my dessert. A similar pavlova recipe can be found here.
I've been drinking more rooibos tea this week, thanks to the prompting of another friend. I had forgotten about plain rooibos (maybe I put it away when I was pregnant with Laura?). It's my new friend now and I am trying to ward off cold hands and stiff muscles with lots of tea!
