Tea Time!

As I sit here sipping on some good old fashioned black tea, warming myself on a gloomy LA morning, I figure what better subject for this week's Pink & Green Thursday? I just started getting into drinking hot tea. In fact, it was last July that I started after visiting The Empress Hotel in Victoria, B.C., Canada for high tea.

Now I'm obsessed! I find myself daydreaming over tea parties and how much fun they'd be!


Want to play along? Pink & Green Thursdays hosted by Trish over at Pink Preppy Lilly Lover are so much fun! Head on over to her blog to check it out and link up.

I love the Empress. I’ve been to high tea at Christmastime there. It was so beautiful! Oooh, I love that cake. Or maybe it’s a plate full of frosting? Either way, yum. Great pictures!

P.S. I left you an award on my blog today!

That is a great shot of Gwen Stefani and the pink cake and cupcakes in the 3rd pic looks like my ideal set-up for a tea party!

I find myself drinking a ton of hot tea when it gets cold out. I look forward to that in the fall.

This is another great post!

That ruffle cake is too perfect for words. I wish tea parties were as popular now as they were when we were kids. Great post :)

Tea parties sound like so much fun! But the only kind of tea I drink is sweet iced tea.

I wish I liked tea, but it's just not my thing. I will drink it when I have a sore throat, but otherwise, it's coffee all the way for me.
