An informative sampling focused on herbs and tea with an occasional sprinkling of fairy dust and a glimpse into family activities too. The contributions to this blog is the combined effort created by the sisters of The Rosemary House and Sweet Remembrances.
We enjoyed Afternoon Tea at the Inn at Biltmore in Asheville, NC. We were seated in the library where they serve tea daily from 2:30 - 4:30. Once seated, this beautiful chest of loose leaf teas is awaiting your decision. They provide a small portion of each tea in clear containers with a complete description on the lid.
Mighty Leaf teas are served at the Inn at Biltmore. The nice selection includes 4 herbal infusions, a white tea, a green tea, and three black teas. We all sniffed our way thru the varieties until we were satisfied with our choices.
Once the tea arrived, the process of filling each tea cup began. Individual pots, and individual silver plated strainers to catch the tea leaves, required complete concentration.
May I pour you some cream?
Everyone was happy with their tea flavors!
Although these young ladies have enjoyed afternoon tea with their mother, their grandmother, and their aunts on many occasions, this was their first 'real' grownup tea as a family outing. We'll share the menu tomorrow.
