Afternoon Tea

#1 Unread post by mogster » Fri Mar 22, 2013 10:20 pm

We seem to have got very serious here in the Ladies Lounge. Why don't we meet up for a nice cup of Earl Grey & some scones? I expect SAPaul wil expect an invite too.

They don't come close to the real thing... I have a scone recipe from my Grandmother, (Lancashire born) it dates back to the 1870's. She didn't make individual scones, but a large one that retained more moisture and was then cut into wedges...

Thanks for the invite, I brought Koeksisters, these rival the best choc cake.

Doc, you can't go bragging about the scones and not provide the recipe. :)

I am here at my computer with a nice cup of tea.

After a long day at work, it's very soothing to just relax and sip.

I never quite acquired the taste for Earl Gray; did you guys always like it right off the bat or did you grow to like it after a while?

I like it occasionally. Especially Cream of Earl Grey. I wouldn't want it too often though.

This afternoon, I am having a black tea called Capital of Heaven-Keemun. (I went to the tea shop today to by some loose tea).
