Afternoon Tea at Nicol's Pastry Shop

One of the highlights of July was my afternoon tea meet-up with some local members of my Canadian card and tea exchange group.

Nicol's Pastry Shop is a family-operated business that specializes in European pastries and cake. The shop recently started offering high tea by reservation only.

Our elegant tea table was set with gorgeous Royal Albert china.

Bottom (L-R): "Joy" & "Devotion" 

I enjoyed Sloane's delicious "Heavenly Cream"--a smooth black tea with bergamot and vanilla.

The tier stand served delicious afternoon tea for three.

Top tier: Melt-in-your-mouth scones served with Chantilly lace and jam.

Middle tier: Mini pastries for dessert.

Bottom tier: Finger sandwiches (salmon and cucumber) and quiche.

L-R: Wendy, Gaia, Judith, Margie, Sandra
Of course, the best part of the afternoon tea was the wonderful company of blogging friends!

Thank you, ladies, for great conversations and fun times!


I'm joining the following parties this week:
