It doesn’t seem like this event is going to be exactly what I was hoping for. But I am pleased to announce that I will be hosting a table at the High Tea May 1st at my church. They seem to be pretty set on how everything will go, so I must abide by rules it seems. But I am pleased that at the very least I will be having tea with my church ladies. There will be a multiple course supper served, and I am sad to say it does not appear to be vegetarian friendly. So for this, I am going to break the rules and make a vegetarian dish because it’s discriminatory otherwise.
I must supply 8 table settings as well as two teapots, and tea bags since some people may have issues with certain teas. I am going to have a traditional Earl Grey, a Floral, and a Spice. I’m not entirely sure what floral I will choose, but I am thinking Chai Rooibos for my spice tea. I am also going to offer Agave Nectar as a sweetening, as well as sugar because I’m a prissy snot at times.
My good friend has said she will come, so this Sunday I am going to purchase her ticket. Funny enough, she used to attend my church but hasn’t since the Pastor change about 10 months ago. It will probably be very good for her to see some people she may recognize.
At the end of this, I am sure I will be exhausted. The stress of loaning your prized china to people is a little daunting. But I must not be so attached to material items. I love all my china equally so there’s no better option in this instance.
I wish that these sorts of things were more common. A few years back I had attempted to start a charitable tea society. I had a few interested parties at first, but it then slowly dwindled down to just myself. For that reason I gave up. It seems women tend to shy away from any sort of uniform female bonding.
Do you enjoy tea parties? have you ever been to one? What is your absolute favorite tea? I would love your feedback. Thank you for reading
