Pinkies Up!

Tea creates a convivial atmosphere wherein we make new friends. One such friend is Stephanie, a lovely lady who has come to our monthly Japanese Tea Ceremony demonstrations. She invited us to an English tea party in celebration of England's Prince William's wedding to Katherine Middleton.

With pinkies extended, we enjoyed her hospitality with "cheering, jeering and a great smearing of jams" on home-made English muffins while tipping back cups of black tea. There were some familiar faces. We enjoyed making some new friends and reconnected with a woman who studied Cha-no-yu with us more than 20 years ago. What a wonderful afternoon!
