After our recent trip to the Chantilly Tearoom we decided to host our own tea and weeks ago we selected this weekend for it. It couldn't have come at a better time ~ giving us the chance to share our complex feelings about the shootings in the company of friends.
We did the tea in proper style - several selections of tea (fruity, robust, calming), savory treats, scones, whipped cream with Grand Marnier, and sweets. Beautiful cups, teapots, and serving plates from our families were showcased. There is probably a study about the confirmed restorative power of tea. Add friends to the mix and it is really good medicine.
