A time for tea

“If you are cold, tea will warm you,
If you are too heated, it will cool you,
If you are depressed, it will cheer you,
If you are exhausted, it will calm you”
– William Gladstone

It’s the perfect place to relax, and enjoy the fine experience of “afternoon tea“.

Today, this was my gift to my mom for Mother’s Day …. Tea for two.

The Aubrey Rose tea room in La Mesa, CA, offers a delightful experience to savor, both visually and for the palate.

We enjoyed some delicious tea, a most unusual flavor of chocolate and hazelnut for one of our choices, and the other a delightful blend of peaches and cream.

A light little cookie begins this amazing experience of afternoon tea! Oh to be spoiled like this everyday!

Some tasty tea sandwiches, and sweet treats were the perfect complement for the tea.

Of course tea just wouldn’t be complete without scones!

Fresh baked lemon, blueberry scones were the perfect touch to this delightful experience. Complete with lemon curd, and Devonshire cream.
Oh, so delicious !

Happy Mother’s Day to my mom – a most wonderful lady, with an abundant amount of unconditional love.

Thank you for always loving me! I love you!
