Anglophile Tea Time

Two weeks ago, my darling friend Sarah and I met for our annual birthday tea. Each fall we celebrate our birthdays (July and September) with a full several course tea at one of the local tea rooms. Sarah is my fellow anglophile from college. Besides being in band (Go Clarinets!) together there, we were both in England at the same time on various study experiences. We met up in Oxford and had, of course,! (We now lament that we did not have proper tea together in England, but alas---C'est la vie.)

This year we had afternoon tea at The Mad Hatter in the fair city of Anoka, MN. It was a delightful afternoon, the company and conversation wonderful and very relaxing.

Tea, with cream.

Creamy Wild Rice Soup.

Tea Sandwiches with Fruit: Egg Salad, Cucumber,Turkey Croissant with something Tomato and Chicken Salad with Apple Butter on Cinnamon Bread.

Dessert Tray: Orange-Cranberry Scones served with Clotted Cream, Preserves & Lemon Curd, Chocolate Brownies, Chocolate Covered Strawberries, Lime Tarts.

Smiles all around.
