Welcome to Friendship Tea, a blog about the daily happenings in the life of Linda, a tea enthusiast, who enjoys travel and trip planning, and is passionate about family, friends, life in Kentucky, and all things TEA.
Today I made 100 Cinnamon Scones from a recipe in the Fall 2004 issue of Tea Time Magazine. I put the unbaked scones in the freezer and have 100 more to make. The recipe was declared a winner by GJ, AJ and my friend Patty when I made a trial batch last week. I have kept all the issues of Tea Time Magazine and refer to them often for recipes and tablescape inspiration. Do you have a favorite magazine or publication you keep for reference for tea parties or entertaining ideas?
When the world is all at odds And the mind is all at sea Then cease the useless tedium And brew a cup of tea. There is magic in its' fragrance, There is solace in its' taste; And then laden moments vanish Somehow into space. And the world becomes a lovely thing! There's beauty as you'll see; All because you briefly stopped To brew a cup of tea. ~ Source unknown
