T is for Tea Rooms and Tea
The Queen Mary Tea Room in Seattle, Washington.
This last weekend my husband and I took a quick trip to our home in Washington. On Sunday my sister Lana (Above the Clouds) and my daughters had reservations for Tea at the Queen Mary Tea Room in Seattle, Washington. So of course my T is for Tea!
The table settings were beautiful with a different tea cup and saucer for each of us to enjoy.
All the lovely Tea accessories and amazing assortment of Teas. Each of us had our own pot of tea. I had Lavender Earl Grey, Lana had Jack Fruit (a staff favorite), Katie had a Mango blend, and Laura had a Chai blend.
Our Tea food was delicious and plentiful. We started with 3 flavors of sorbet with a butterfly lavender shortbread cookie, Scones, Crumpets, Quiche, Sandwiches, lemon bread, and a variety of sweets. Of course we had clotted cream and jams to go with.
Laura my DIL, Katie my daughter, and my sister Lana G!
On the way home from our tea party we stopped at the Seattle Arboretum and visited the Japanese Gardens so we could see this Japanese Tea house where my daughter Katie is studying the Art of Japanese Tea for one of her University classes.
This is Katie all dressed up for her Art of Japanese Tea Ceremony Class.
The girls had a very lovely afternoon in beautiful Seattle.
