Mad Hatter's Tea Party

So wonderful day yesterday - myself and Ciara went to Lisa's Tea treasure for a lovely tea for two in afternoon. Its a http://www.lisastea.com/photogallery.aspx wonderful speciality cafe that serves tea as in olden England. So waitresses dress up Victorian style, you have china teapots and cups, cucumber sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam... Yummy. Here's the dessert - an almond pie with my afternoon Darjeeling tea.

So I wore a hat as lets face it when you live in Sunny California you don't get to wear one that often and its always nice to stick on a hat at the slightest excuse.
So we had a marvellous tea. That's quite a compliment from me as I'm fussy nah on snobbish about my tea. American tea like Lipton is well.. shite to be blunt so having a cup of tea where they gasp.. get the concept of boiling water before you serve it and serving it hot and not tepid is fantastic. Also there was nay any sign of any Lipton or other general orange pekoe black American disgusting tea here, there was a menu of teas and I had afternoon Darjeeeling with also a side of mint ice tea for quenching my thirst. Actually I had two pots of tea all to myself as Ciara had two pots of fruit passion tea as shes into that at moment.
Lisa's tea treasure is a perfect wee spot for preggers ladies actually as the small bites of different sandwiches is perfect this late in pregnancy. It was lovely just to sit and drink tea and do nothing but sit and drink tea. Soon be a Mummy and won't be able to just leave the house to do that without making sure someone has Hobbit and I have their next feed ready. Its all very exciting though. So enjoy your cup of tea where ever you are and have a great weekend.
