One of my local grocery stores (Wegmans) has a long and wonderful tea aisle, including tins full of loose leaf teas that are self service. In that way, you can get just enough to try something new...including my find a couple of months ago of chrysanthemum tea!
The tin was full of dried whole chrysanthemum flowers, that made for a lovely tea as soon as I added hot water to my small glass teapot.
This tea is very mild and is caffeine free. I enjoyed it with a bit of sugar (ok, two whole lumps), but I just had to put some milk on the tray too so I could use my new glass creamer and sugar set even though the tea doesn't need milk.
I really like the art deco look of this set.
Little petals drift on the top of the light yellow tea after I poured it into my cup.
I'm enjoying tea in my Royal Crown Derby demitasse set, a gift from my sister, who knew that I had been looking for one of these Imari sets for my collection.
What better snack to go with a November tea than pumpkin, like this pumpkin mini-bundt cake?
Thanks for stopping by! I'm joining the tea parties below:
