I have loved tea parties since I was a young girl. My grandmother gave my sister, Sandy, and me a miniature china tea set that we used for our tea parties. Now my grandchildren use it when they come to Mimi’s house for a “tea tarty.” We serve tea and cookies.
My mother was a tea drinker and that is probably where my love for tea came from. However, she would steep her Lipton tea bag until the tea was dark and bitter. I, on the other hand, like my tea with wonderful flavor and no bitterness. I like the flavored teas – herbal is my favorite for good reason.
