We actually had this at breakfast AND lunch today.

Remember tea party day? It has changed a wee bit because both of the younger daughters are in college now and one is also working, so we have to schedule it whenever we can. We still get together once a week, but it has been a “summer of soups” instead of dessert being the star of the show. (Make no mistake, dessert still happens but it is usually cookies now.)

At breakfast this pretty much serves as what the name says – breakfast tea. But at tea time it seemed to morph into a tea lightly flavored with….cinnamon? I don’t know why it had that vibe going on but it really caught me off guard. I had to take a couple of extra sips and then wrack my brain trying to remember if I had switched teapots or something, but no, it was just the way the flavor came across with what we were serving.

Soups thus far have been fresh garden tomato, butternut squash, potato leek, Hungarian apple, and rustic chicken and vegetables. We have done sandwiches a few times as well. Now it is almost time for everything pumpkin!

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about twelve years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
