Tea Adventure

Visited the prettiest tea house yesterday for Ladies Lunch Out here in Florida.  The Glass Slipper Tea Cottage is in Fort Walton Beach, FL and absolutely charming.  The food is delicious, the teas (Harney & Sons) delicious and I had to smile when they brought out pots of Hot Cinnamon Spice tea, one of our bestsellers at the store.
 We all got to put on hats, and there was a tray of tea cups where we chose our own cup.  This display of tea pots from around the world was so pretty!  The food was wonderful with delicious scones, savories, and desserts served with clotted cream and lemon curd  They had a nice cookbook which of course I bought.

And I learned about cheese straws.  I was told in the South, every shower and event has cheese straws and they are delicious.  Got the recipe for that and will have to try it.

Here are the ladies, what a wonderful outing (I'm in the back on my toes, you can see my big beige hat just peeking through!).
