Tea with Friends - Supersize it

Tea today is not in a dainty cup and saucer but rather in a very large mug.  The Mandarin Chinese buffet restaurant chain  had a special at one time to order your tea in the mug and you could buy it for a few dollars.

This mug holds a whopping 2 1/2 cups of liquid and does keep my tea hot too.  Ladies, you know where you're headed after drinking one or two mugs of tea from it....:-)
Well, you can't have a huge mug of tea with a petite dessert along side it so I made my pizza pan chocolate chip cookies. (the recipe that makes 2 is on my recipe page under the banner)  Now, there were two reasons to bake the large cookies and that was so I could give one to the new neighbours next door that moved in with two little boys.  The other........a slice goes very well with tea and my husband Glenn is a chocolate chip cookie kind of guy.

Wouldn't you know it?  We got into our pizza pan cookie before I remembered to photograph it!  I think you can see what a big cookie you end up with.

There you have it; if it's possible to supersize afternoon tea, I believe I did it!  I promise to get out some pretty cups and saucers for tea next week.

I'm joining these ladies for tea this week: Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage, Lady Katherine at Lady Katherine Tea Parlor, Martha at Martha's Favorites,


  1. I love big coffee mugs and this one is no exception. And the cookie looks absolutely YUM...

  2. Judith, I am so jealous of that big mug of yours! I LOVE tea first thing in the morning in a BIG mug! The first sip is always so good! The cookie look yummy too!
    Thanks for the nice comment on my daughter's party. Of course you love the colors! I am loving purple more and more these days!

  3. Oh I love my huge coffee mug too! It's mine and I love it filled with coffee, tea or soup! Oh what a scrumptious looking cookie!


  4. Yum. Now I want a great big cookie to go with my pot of tea. :)

  5. Cookies looks great...mug would hold enough tea for a while on the deck!

  6. What a wonderful mug for tea! Like Nancy above, I enjoy my tea, coffee, and soup in a mug. I don't always have my tea in a dainty teacup although I do beleive it does taste better that way. Your supersized cookie looks yummy too! Thanks for sharing and for joining me for Tea Time. It's been a pleasure to visit you as always.

  8. That is a great mug. I like to use a mug during the day - less trips to the teapot. ;-)

    I remember eating at the Mandarin on a trip to Toronto, ON.

  9. Judith...this looks wonderful! I like your big cups. I hace a couple from Starbucks that were a gift from my daughter. I use them for coffee all the time, now I am inspired to have a BIG cup of tea :)
