I love having tea, and having tea out with friends? It's the best!
We went to a really nice tea room called Sugarplums and Tea.
Each of us ordered the same lunch, but different tea. We had their Garden tea which included a lovely salad and fruit cup, a chicken salad open faced sandwich and a Lemon Poppyseed scone with lemon curd. It was delicious! So delicious not one of us thought to take a photo of our beautiful plates!
We did however remember our camera's after we'd eaten so we started to take photos then Becky is working on a photo of the flowers here.
Here is my photo of the flowers...
My Irish Breakfast tea - looseleaf - in a bag - they used as much tea for my wee pot as I would for my bigger pot...it got strong very quickly!

My Mom - the ringleader of this outing! We were so happy she suggested it!
Kelly - listening to the waitress. She and I share a real love of tea. We all were plotting about which tea shop to go to next!
Some of the lovely teas they have for sale by the ounce and the wee tea pots too!
Real tea leaves...note the long pieces. Tea in most tea bags is very short and so you get less flavor...and Lipton? It's pretty much tea dust!
We had a great time, talking, sharing, laughing.
I am thankful for these ladies - my dear friends - and I am thankful for the chance to set busyness aside and enjoy a sweet afternoon.
Guess what I noticed yesterday? The forsythia is beginning to bloom!
