My colleagues and I couldn't let Valentine week pass without having another tea social.
Red Rose's sweet strawberry cheesecake herbal tea was served in dainty teacups.
The savories and sweets brought in by my colleagues.
I thought that the Lunar New Year was the perfect time to brew some of this mystery tea in my Asian-style tea-for-one set.This handless teacup has a generous capacity (similar to a mug). The black tea smelled and tasted malty.
Did you celebrate these February holidays?
I'm joining the following parties this week:
You know how I love reading about your tea socials at work, Margie! They always make me smile as you and your co-workers enjoy a genteel time at the work place. The strawberry and cream tea sounds perfect for a Valentine tea.ReplyDelete
My group of water aerobics friends had a Valentine/Birthday luncheon, and I was the only February birthday! It was a fun time.
You guys really know how to party! What a lovely spread of treats you had! Love the Chinese tea set. We stayed home and I cooked a fancy dinner for my husband. I just took down my Valentine decorations so getting ready to put up the Easter. Since Easter is so early this year, I'll skip my St. Pat's decorations.ReplyDelete
Man, I certainly think you work at a cool place! You guys have the best socials!Lol! Love the teapot too! My friend just had her husband back from an Asian business trip with a Chinese Tea presentation box from his host, but can’t read the labels either! Bet you enjoyed it though. Have a tea filled week and thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea.ReplyDelete
'Morning Margie! What a wonderful array of treats for your tea social. I think you gals really know how to enjoy yourselves and a tea is always perfect. Your red tea-for-one is very attractive but then I am very partial to red it seems. I have a niece who is half Chinese and she always celebrates anything Chinese that comes along. She and her boyfriend are learning Mandarin. I too heard about a Downton Abbey movie in the works. I hope it's true! Enjoy your day, my friend.ReplyDelete
Such fun,Margie!Love the pretty red teapot!Hugs!ReplyDelete
I need to get some new friends, most of my friends think it's kind of silly to have a tea party at our age. Thank goodness my hubby will have afternoon tea with me. The food looks delicious and the tea I know I would enjoy.ReplyDelete
Just love how you gals celebrate at work! My kind of party! I can't wait to try my red rose tea. Waiting for a special moment and I feel it coming up about this weekend. Love all the pictures. Hugs and blessings, CindyReplyDelete
You have a teapot suitable for every occasion! Lovely red. We celebrate Valentine's Day and sometimes bring in Chinese food for that new year. We missed it this year, though.ReplyDelete
Love that teapot... and so perfect for another Valentine’s Day social...What fun... of course I love everything oriental ...Isn’t it nice that you have lots of friends to partake in the festivities of teatime... Lucky You !!!ReplyDelete
Now I’m not at work I miss the weekly “treat” days. But I still have my own tea socials :)ReplyDelete
I'm keeping an eye out for the Red Rose's sweet strawberry cheesecake herbal tea, it looks delicious, as does all the food. What fun friends you have, Margie.ReplyDelete
Margie, I love reading about and seeing pictures of your tea socials. What a great idea!ReplyDelete
Yes, I did celebrate Chinese New Year's and will continue the celebration this coming Saturday with tea. What a pretty teapot.ReplyDelete
It sounds like great times with your colleagues. The Red Rose tea sounds delicious, I may have to try that. We don't celebrate Valentines at work but we usually do something for each person's birthday which is always nice.ReplyDelete
