Taking Tea

In the photo above,
I am Taking Tea, and I don't mean
the definition of Taking Tea as in
Sipping Tea or Drinking Tea.
I mean, I have packed up a basket with
loose leaf TEA and some of my tea equipment
to take to a friend's home to brew tea for her 12 guests
for Afternoon Tea on Friday afternoon.
The delicious food was prepared by Berea Coffee and Tea
and was served buffet-style at the dining room table.  
I was so pleased to be able to introduce the guests
to a good quality loose leaf tea, and they enjoyed it!
I made Harney and Sons Queen Catherine Blend.

I am so happy I was able to help on Friday
afternoon for this very special event.

You are a very good friend to help like this- no te is better than freshly and properly brewed loose leaf tea- and taking that brewing responsibility from the hostess made for a good day for her, too.

I drink H & S tea often but have not yet tried that blend.

WOnderful! Properly steeped loose (quality) tea is something many people have never experienced! I went to the H&S Tea Conference many years ago and met Mr. Harney, as well as other tea 'celebrities'! lol. Nice of you to help out at the tea. Enjoy the end of Feb,

It looks like it was a very delightful time. How special that you were able to assist with perfect cups of tea! That's something very special to be famous for --- a perfect cuppa tea!

I should think you enjoyed sharing your tea expertise as much as the guests did, having you there.

I love your play on the term "taking tea," as I had never thought of it that way. They are certainly lucky they had such an expert to prepare tea for them on Friday!

Perfect understanding. There's a difference between transporting tea and being transported BY tea.

Looks welcoming and lovely.

Cute title! How wonderful to be able to share your knowledge of tea with all the ladies, I'm sure they enjoyed it!
