Tea Upon Chatsworth

TeaUponChatworthMy sister-in-law came to visit a couple of weeks ago and one of the highlights of our time together was afternoon tea in Point Loma.  It’s a cute little place with lots of ladies in hats and a hodgepodge of beautiful china.

When I first sat down, I couldn’t believe how many teas they had to choose from.  I usually drink green tea, so the array of choices was really exciting.  My favorites were the Vanilla Jasmine and the Creme de Earl Grey.

It was a really nice, leisurely way to spend the afternoon.  The British are really onto something from this tea time thing!TeaUponChatsworth2
