Tea with a View at Oceanhaven, Nassau

Now this is tranquili-tea, er, tranquility! Following the informative garden tour at Ocean Haven, we enjoyed a beautiful and serene tea tasting on the patio overlooking the water. The setting was simply perfect, and the tea was a delight.


Our host and hostess, out-of-region MATBA members Paul and Denise Worrell of Naturally Bahamian prepared a delicious sampling of Bahamian treats. We were offered a variety of teas and juices to start which were all very refreshing. Pumpkin Soup, gently seasoned with Bird Pepper and Thyme was on the table.
Before we sampled any of the gourmet delights, we took a quick photo of the Mid-Atlantic Tea Business Association members and several spouses.

Oceanhaven Green Salad with sorrel mango vinaigrette dressing was complemented with BaHammus and Vegan Herb Crackers. BaHummus is Paul's consolidated version of Bahamian Hummus. Mini Fish Patties rounded out the sampling for the main course.
Dessert included Bahamian Otaeete apple pies and pumpkin bread. What a delightful and delicious way to spend a morning!

                      And did I mention the view?
