Easter Violets

Last week, we celebrated the arrival of spring and Easter with another tea social at work. 

I brought in my violet chintz tea set.

For Tea's Sake Sour Apple Martini green tea (not pictured) was sipped from the demitasse cups. The light and fruity green tea was a hit with my co-workers!

My co-workers brought a well-balanced variety of delicious food.
