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.
AJ drank only juice at this tea event, but as you can see, he learned how to sit through a lovely tea, was a very good boy, and thoroughly enjoyed himself! Since this afternoon tea, he has participated in many more afternoon teas in the USA, Canada and Great Britain.
He likes most foods served with tea, but his favorites are cucumber and egg salad sandwiches and chocolate dipped strawberries with his choice of English Breakfast or Earl Grey Tea. It really irratates me when tea servers automatically asume he will choose hot chocolate as his beverage choice just because he is a child.
He is a great tea buddy and always willing to enjoy a nice cuppa tea with me.
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
