That word congers up for me my finest tea set. I remember inviting my children to a tea party. My daughter had just returned from Fiji on a touring scholarship and brought me back a bag of tea.
I made some cheese sandwiches, some other finger foods and boiled the water added it to the tea pot with the tea and let it stand. Everyone was excited, because this was the first time drinking tea.
We sat down and I played the gracious hostess. I did not disappoint. I poured the tea into their elegant cups in their saucers and placed their cheese sandwich into the plates. They enjoyed it.
If we care, we can all make simple pleasures into elegant affairs and enjoy life to the fullest!
