September Tea Travel

  I am happy to say my tea time travels are on it's way. I have decided to visit as many tea shops and salons as I can. Will be looking to travel to at least one Tea Shop a month ☕

This month it was the lovely Tea Shop in Waltham called The Tea Leaf 🌿

My companions and I had a delightful tea experience ☕

The owner was so charming, I think I have a life long tea friend.☕

Home Sweet Home-August Tea Swap 2016


I came home from vacation from a week on the Beach. It was a long (over due) needed time to relax and get in touch with myself.
I stayed at my dear friends beach home in Oakland Beach, RI.

When I came home, I had a package waiting for me on the front steps. It's always so wonderful having something or someone waiting when you get home. I was totally delighted to get this package. 
It was from  Lady Catherine of Round Lake Beach, IL.
 


We were tea swap partners in the August Tea Swap.

I want to thank Lady Catherine for this lovely tea cup and saucer.  I truly love the cup. It is
Harleigh Fine Bone China.             Inside the cup is 


Which reads:                             Aries of London-Fine Black Cherries

 The tea cup and saucer was accompanied with a lovely tin can fulled with English Breakfast tea.
A classic blend of Indian, Kenyan and Ceylon tea.
I could not wait to sit and enjoy a cup and read all my lovely greeting cards I received while I was away. Thank you all. It is great to come home to such a welcome!

Summer Tea

Tea Chat With Lady Estelle

 I just adore Summer Tea Time. I find many people feel tea time is only for the warm weather. But I love Summer Afternoon Teas. Let me help you plan a nice little tea gathering for the month of July.

 



 First, start with a lovely bouquet of flowers arranged from your garden to decorate your table. I cut these lovely roses from a potted plant I had on my porch. I was so happy to see them bloom so well.

 

 

 

 


 

Then, choose the perfect tea that you can enjoy hot or iced. I found this tea from Oliver Pluff & Co. It is fruity and so delicious. You can purchase this in tea bags or whole leaf.

 

 

 

This is a easy treat to serve with your tea.
Tiers of delicate sponge cake covered in succulent berries and a cloud of whipped cream with a hint of Grand Marnier.

What a delight! So, go ahead and plan that afternoon tea for two or just you!

 

 

 

 DID YOU KNOW?

 Teatime is the time at which the tea meal is usually eaten, which is late afternoon to early evening, being the equivalent of merienda. ... Some people in Britain refer to their main evening meal as "tea" rather than dinner or supper.

Tea Chat with Lady Estelle

 LET'S TEA CHAT! 


 

 Once again I will be writing an article for this wonderful news letter. For many year I have enjoyed the taking of tea, tea cup and pot  collecting and anything that had to do with a glorious tea presentation. I even had the pleasure of owning my own Tea Salon, one of my life long dreams!

But, one thing I have not gotten to do yet is travel around the county visiting other little tea shops and establishments.

I would love to take you on a virtual Tea Traveling Tour

The city of London and tea go hand-in-hand, and it’s no secret that the British love a good cup of tea. To get the full experience while visiting the city, consider taking a tea crawl, which is exactly what it sounds like – a healthier version of a pub crawl! Twinings on the Strand is an iconic spot for tea, and the Twinings Tea Room has been serving piping hot cups of tea for over 300 years. Other top spots to sip tea here include Camellia’s Tea House (try an in-house infusion) and Bea’s of Bloomsbury (try loose leaf teas).




Not to be done by London and other parts of the UK, Dublin is more than a city to find good beer. Days in Dublin can get chilly, so warm up with a cup of tea at Bewley’s on Grafton Street. This is a top spot to grab a traditional Irish breakfast and do some shopping too. Other top spots for tea in the city include Wall and Keogh, The Shelbourne and Clement and Pekoe.

 

 

 


Tea might not be grown in New York City, but as a global capital, travelers can find an amazing selection of tea in the Big Apple. Taking an afternoon break for high tea is especially popular among visitors around the holidays. Some recommended tea cafes include Madeline’s Tea at the Carlyle on the Upper East Side, Eloise Tea at the Plaza in Midtown East, and Alice’s Tea Cup on the Upper East and West Sides. The Russian Tea Room is a famous venue here and offers afternoon tea daily.

 

I hope that one day I will be able to travel to these places and give you a first hand account of them.

    StudioE/ Tea Corner is designed by Lady Estelle

     

    StudioE/ Tea Corner is designed by Lady Estelle of Providence. With my passion for the Victorian style of socializing, I wanted to incorporate it as the theme of my little Tea corner.
    Studio E is not a tea rooms, tea parlors or coffee shops.
    It is a place to step back in time and enjoy a custom designed tea experience. It is unique because it is a very old concept.
    One can come to rewind, socialize or just relax,,,,
    By invitation only,

    StudioE is back!


     I am happy to announce that StudioE is back up and running. It was moved from the store front to the second floor apartment. Sorry, it is not handicap accessible, but it is quite cozy..
