It was tea time with my youngest ladies.
We arrived at 2:00 for a late tea with some of our friends.
Our first tea was a lovely peach tea.
It was served with a potato soup that I thought was delicious.
It was followed by a melon salad in strawberry sauce.
The girls really loved the tea once I told them they could add a dollop of sugar and milk!
Second tea was a Lady Earl Grey. I had never tasted that one before and it was lovely.
They served it with cranberry scones and sandwiches.
Egg salad, turkey and cucumber sandwiches.
I love the cucumber!!
Great choices for little girls I think!
So we had some lovely conversations with our friends as we sipped our tea and snacked on our sandwiches.
Oh, my that girl!!
The final tea was a Green Chai Tea.
We completed the afternoon with some light shopping in the store.
I thought this was the perfect way to practice our etiquette.
From how to sip tea politely all the way to the final dessert morsel entering our mouths, it was a great way to finish our study.
I was so proud of the girls and their manners.
It is a lost art in our society and I am going to bring it back, at least in our family!
