Tea with Friends - Roses and Strawberry Tea

I'm making Strawberry Fields white tea today.


It's from one of the tea specialty shops at the mall and contains white tea, apple pieces, currants, hibiscus, melon cubes and strawberry pieces.  The infuser for my teapot will intertwine all these lovely bits to make a very light pink and sweet tasting tea.



From my stainless steel infusing teapot the tea will be put into this Royal Albert Lavender Rose pot which is prettier to have on the table.


With the fine sediment from this tea, I like to strain it into the cup.  The Maxwell Williams 'Rose Bud' is a pattern that Sandi in PEI has too and she also was recently gifted with the teapot from her husband.


Simple digestive cookies on a silver tray with a couple of rosebuds from my carpet roses that line the walkway out front and a snippet of butterfly bush.



A tiny bouquet of the petite roses for the table.


Tea is served and I am joining Sandi from Rose Chintz Cottage, Lady Katherine from Lady Katherine Tea Parlor and their guests for tea.
Since tea has always been an integral part of Victoria magazine and given us the inspiration to set a pretty table I am also linking with Kathy from A Delightsome Life for her continued Celebration of Victoria.

  4. Hi Judith,
    Your Strawberry Fields white tea sounds scrumptious! How delightful everything looks on your table, my friend! The Rose Bud teacup looks splendid with the Lavender Rose teapot! Love the pinks and lacey doiley. Your sweet little rose buds look darling in their vase and on the tray! Such a pretty tea and so inviting too. Thank you for sharing and your name has gone into the hat for the Giveaway. Enjoy your evening.

  15. That tea really sounds divine, Judith! I must admit, I don't really drink tea but that is so tempting! And I have a huge weakness for digestive biscuits. Thank you for sharing it all! xo

  16. Hi Judith, You inquired about the butter cow at the Iowa State Fair. The butter is melted down after the fair and stored for next year's butter cow. In addition to the butter cow, there are other figures carved as well. This year included the Cat in the Hat as a tribute to Dr. Seuss. Even Elvis had his moment in butter!
