Happy Victoria Day to my fellow Canucks!
Sandi from Rose Chintz Cottage provided a nice summary of why Canada celebrates Victoria Day here.
|2010 Mother's Day Tea with Queen Victoria|
Back in 2010, we attended a Mother's Day Tea at the Ireland House in Burlington, Ontario.
Queen Victoria (right) graced us with her presence.
I took last Friday off from work so I enjoyed a super long weekend!
I treated myself to a delicious brunch of Eggs Benedict and raspberry tea at Jax Sweet Shoppe.
In the afternoon, I dropped by the Hazel Tea & Dessert House, a newly opened internet cafe specializing in bubble tea.
I tried one of the signature milk teas (iced): Hazel's Brown Sugar Milk Green.
The creamy green tea was sweetened with brown sugar, but I could still detect a slight bitterness from the green tea's tannins. I used to like tapioca beads when I was younger, but now I prefer my bubble tea minus the bubbles!
My sweet tooth very much enjoyed Hazel's signature milk waffle.
My yummy "Very Matcha" waffle was served with green matcha ice cream, red bean paste, and cheesecake bits (unlike the traditional cheesecake, the Japanese-style cheesecake is light and fluffy).
I'll definitely go back to Hazel Tea and Dessert House to try the other milk teas and enjoy the "Very Matcha" waffle again!
I'm joining the following parties this week:
