Question: Do you like to eat anything special with your tea? (ie Tea Cakes, Cookies, etc.)

Question: Have you ever been to a HIGH TEA (or something like it)?


Usually for me, I like something that balances the tea. Like if it is a bitter like lemon, I go for a little sweeter treat like a cookie, or if it is sweeter like vanilla, I go for a bitter snack like a salad or sandwich...

I went to a tea at the Empress Hotel in Victoria, BC...when I was 14 with my grandparents..it was my FIRST HIGH TEA EVER! All I remember after was, "When are we going to have lunch??" I guess tea, finger sandwiches, and scones didn't fill me up...

I have always wanted to go to the tea at the GRAND FLORIDIAN, but haven't had the chance yet...not sure if I could get DH to go with me, and it seems silly to go ALONE!

I usually just drink tea in the morning, so with breakfast.
Sometimes, if I get cold in the afternoon also.

I have been to tea at the Empress, Garden View a few times and several other tea rooms too. Lots of fun. We are supposed to go to one in Dec, but not sure if it is going to happen, the planner got laid off from her job.

Hello, if you braved Black Friday, then you are a braver soul than me, DH and I decided to go to Sea World to avoid the craziness.

Please remember that today is the send by date, so make sure to post when your package is on the way.

I'm sorry!! With everything that has gone on/gone wrong in the last week and the Turkey day visitors, I dropped the ball.

I will drive my package to the main post office tonorrow morning so it goes out faster.

Again, so sorry!!

I am sorry you missed us EeyoreEma...Maybe I can do this another time and then you can join us!!

Hope everyone had a GREAT Thanksgiving and Black Friday...I am SO GLAD I did not enter all the CRAZINESS!! It was bad enough that on my way home from Sea World with my DH that there was a high speed chase on the Freeway on the other side that ended badly and it slowed traffic to almost STOPPED! Luckily, we got past it and got home safely...

It looks as though everybody got sent out There is one that needed some time and she is sending out tomorrow and there is still one unaccounted for... but other than that great job everyone... I am glad that everyone got out in a timely manner... Next week should have some WONDERFUL arrivals!! So far everything has sounded really good...

Question: If you could make your own special tea/beverage flavor, what would you make?

I would like a peach and cinnamon spice blend that when you added milk to it would taste like a Peach Cobbler... I like the idea of a Dessert flavored Tea...
