And hot tea served in our wedding china, Noritake Chandon, was perfect with our scones. Surprisingly, my boys love hot tea and my girls often request another beverage instead of tea. But Wednesday, everyone wanted hot tea. I guess we all needed our teacups filled during that busy day.
Wednesday's cream tea literally took minutes to prepare and about 15 minutes to share. But it was amazing how refreshing it was to pause in the midst of the busyness of the afternoon to spend a few quiet moments in simple pleasure. I will bear this in mind in weeks to come, remembering that within a few sips, a mid-week cream tea can take us from "Hump Day" to "Peak of the Week."
