Traveling Tea Friends Meet Pastry Chef Liz at Historic Boone Tavern Hotel

 Melissa, Nancy, Pastry Chef Liz, and Linda (me)
enjoyed a special Kentucky Derby Inspired Afternoon Tea 
at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 18th 
in the Skylight Room, a private dining room
at Historic Boone Tavern Hotel of Berea College.
Chef Liz planned and prepared a most delightful Derby Tea menu.
Beautiful and delicious  Horseshoe Sugar Cookies made by Chef Liz

Below:  Aaron and Chadwick brewing the Mayor's Cup
and Lavender Earl Grey teas. 
The tea brewing was set-up in the Coyle Gathering Room, 
a private dining room adjacent to the Skylight Room.
Rachel was our server. 
~~
I should have asked how many cups of tea were  served to our group
of ten tea bloggers, tea educators and tea lovers.
Yes, we do drink multiple cups of tea!

I'll be the last member of the group to start blogging about my memories of our Traveling Tea Friends adventures in Kentucky this coming Monday. It was such a great trip!

It certainly was a special afternoon tea event. The hotel staff did a great job.

As for how many cups of tea - a lot! I probably drank half a dozen myself.

It all sounds so wonderful, Linda!

I can't wait to try Lavender Earl Grey! I have had Lavender tea and it is delightful, and EG is one of my go-to daily ones, so should be interesting to have them fused together!

Have a wonderful weekend.

It's so nice to have a local restaurant that knows how to do tea! The beverage and the meal.
