I've been absent for a week as I've been away on a tea tour in Michigan....and it was wonderful!
Let me introduce our hostess, Phyllis Barkey who blogs at Relevant Tea Leaf. Phyllis was busy planning a year ahead and had pretty gift bags waiting for each of the 9 ladies arriving to join her.
Our first evening at a hotel in Utica, MI we had a tea and chocolate pairing presented by Teresa (top left) from Ohio. It really was a lot of fun tasting three different varieties of tea with each of the three chocolates. Teresa also gifted each of us with a box of goodies.
Top photo l-r is yours truly, Linda P, my friend Gloria, (we were the Canadians in the group) and Barb. Bottom left is Joan and Lori. Bottom right is Nancy who blogs at Rosemary's Sampler, Phyllis and Linda J who blogs at Friendship Tea.
I'll continue our tour in a post next week where we enjoyed a Japanese Tea Ceremony and time on Mackinac Island.
Take Time for Tea!
