Afternoon Tea at Aunt Ida's

Afternoon tea is a time to gather for conversation, enjoyment and and chance to linger with friends in a gracious setting. The choice of food depends on the occasion, the time of the year and personal taste. A traditional afternoon tea consists of a selection of small sandwiches and savories, scones accompanied by lemon curd or clotted cream and jam, small sweets and/or a dessert. Tea, of course, is the drink to accompany afternoon tea. The tradition of having afternoon tea is one of life's wonderful pleasures. Sharing tea time with friends and family is one of my favorite things to do.
"There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hours dedicated to the ceremony of tea." Henry James
