Making Tea for 140 Guests

The photo above my Sanyo hot water pot I brought back from Japan in 1994 on my first trip there. The hotel rooms where we stayed had these along with a variety of green and black tea and traditional Japanese teacups (without handles).

These are my "tea urns" I use when making large quantities of tea. OK, I know they say "coffee" on the boxes, but these have never, ever been used for coffee. I use them to heat water and mix with a tea concentrate I make prior to the event.

This Saturday, October 17th, is the annual fund raiser I chair, Tea Time With Berea Health Ministry. I will make the tea concentrate on Friday evening in preparation for tea time on Saturday. In addition, I planned the menu, I'm making scones and sandwiches and too many other responsibilities to list! Tomorrow my friend Lynn is coming over to help me fold and staple the programs I printed.
Tea Time With Berea Health Ministry is a hostess-table-decorated event where the hostess determines her own table theme. Hopefully, I will be able to take lots of photos to share with you between making and serving tea.
Be sure to come back after Saturday to see all the fun photos! Our hostesses are being very creative and secretive this year. Some of them participated last year, and others are participating for the first time.
