Tea on the Patio

Sadly there is no photo to document this, but Librarian M stopped by Sunday afternoon, bringing a beautiful painted egg for the holiday and a box of Taylor's of Harrogate Scottish Breakfast Tea. We sat on the patio, drinking Tazo Awake and eating thick pumpkin cookies with tiny chocolate chips--delicious! The weather is now perfect for eating outside.

Prince of Wales tea

Today we are serving Twining's Prince of Wales tea in the parlor. It is a smooth and very mild tea; so mild, in fact, that we couldn't steep it enough to make it more to our taste.

Tea and Toast

While playing hooky (well, not really--since we in the parlor worked last Saturday, we took this Friday afternoon off while the computer network at work was unplugged and reconnected to a new system), that traditional combination of tea and toast is lovely, especially when enjoyed while reading a book outside on a beautiful spring afternoon. Cinnamon raisin toast may be the cosiest of comfort foods.
